Indonesia: Green livelihoods in response to climate change

In Indonesia, the ILO supports the creation of sustainable livelihoods for local communities in the Central Kalimantan province.

The ILO pilot project Green Livelihood Access for Central Kalimantan’s Inclusive Environmental Response to Climate Change (Glacier) aims to improve access to sustainable livelihoods for local communities in the Ex Mega Rice Project (EMRP) area in Central Kalimantan (Borneo) for the reforestation of peat swamp forests. Funded through UNDP’s partnership with the Government of Norway, this 12-month project targeted at five villages focuses on (i) environmental infrastructure investments as a response to climate change, (ii) capacity building of communities and local authorities on sustainable livelihood creation and (iii) participatory methods for green value chain development.
