Development of a Gender Concept for the Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME) in Indonesia

The Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME) is a collaborative initiative implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry. The project aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the forestry sector and improve the livelihoods of Indonesia’s poor rural communities. This report outlines the results of a gender analysis of Indonesia’s forestry sector undertaken to inform the design of a gender strategy for FORCLIME. The report’s findings are derived from institutional analysis, based on literature reviews, focus groups and interviews, and participatory analysis, undertaken in a forest community in West-Kalimantan. The report concludes with a set of recommendations for gender mainstreaming and women empowerment and then outlines elements of a gender strategy for FORCLIME.
