Adaptation and Mitigation of Climate Change in Indonesia

GDRC is collaborating with "CC-base" - an initiative to create a baseline for adaptation and mitigation of climate change in Indonesia.

The initiative aims to create a comprehensive information baseline on existing condition and trends (covering social, economic and environmental aspects) in Indonesia based on GIS and spatial/remote sensing data, especially on land use and land cover changes to ensure adaptation and mitigation activities of climate change are implemented in scientifically sound basis.

Such verified data will form the base for modeling and decision support systems at all levels of governance – national, provincial and local, as well as facilitate stakeholder dialogue to push for adaptation and mitigation action.
