  • The World Bank Indonesia invites you to Bicara Bumi Webinar Series on "Launch of World Bank Reports: Protecting Natural Resources and Fostering Resilient and Green Economic Growth through Sustainable Agriculture, Effective Fire Management, and Strong Peatland and Lowlands Governance." on February 4, 2021 at 9:30-11:45am Jakarta time.

    The reports being launched are:

    • Sustainable Lowland Agriculture Development in Indonesia. This report discusses recommendations to achieve the twin benefits of raising agriculture productivity (to promote greater and more widely shared prosperity) and environmental sustainability (to curb resource depletion and deleterious long-term effects).
    • Improving Governance of Indonesia’s Peatlands and Other Lowland Ecosystems. This report presents recommendations to address sustainability challenges from lowland development through a landscape approach. The report focuses on peatland area in eight fire-prone provinces.
    • Addressing Persistent Forest and Land Fires in Indonesia: Institutional and Expenditure Review of Fire Management. This report discusses critical elements in developing an Integrated Fire Management (IFM) strategy in Indonesia, including fire-prone locations, major drivers of fires, central government institutions with mandates linked to drivers of fires, program framework and related spending on fire management, as well as the role of local institutions and an integrated approach at the landscape level (‘cluster-based’).

    The event will be conducted in Indonesian with translation to English via Zoom. Instructions to choose the language can be found here. The event will also be live-streamed via World Bank Indonesia Facebook Page
