About the landscape West Kalimantan
West Kalimantan is a major production area for palm oil, timber, and pulp & paper, and therefore vital for the Indonesian economy. It is a sourcing area for many (international) companies and provides a source of incomes for local communities that are largely dependent on agriculture for their livelihoods. In the past five years, agriculture generated IDR 120.49 trillion to the economy. At the same time, the forests and peatlands of West Kalimantan are significant carbon stocks. The estimated carbon stock remaining in the province equals 1.6 Giga tons CO2. Moreover, its forests are home to endemic and endangered species such as the Bornean orangutan and the Proboscis monkey.
IDH aim to conserve 190,000 hectares of HCV/HCS forest and peatland (directly and indirectly), restore 10,000 hectares of forest and peatland, and improve sustainable agricultural production on 45,000 hectares. In addition, we aim to improve the livelihoods of 10,000 smallholder farmers and community members that are directly reached by training and service delivery.

The ambitious targets will be achieved within the timeline of 5 years.
