    Abstract

    The goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change cannot be achieved without a significant reduction in emissions from forests. Reductions of emissions from land use, particularly forests, account for a quarter of the reductions pledged in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) submitted by Parties to the UNFCCC. The papers included in this Special Issue of Forest Policy and Economics provide a contribution to the analysis of the design and implementation of the NDCs and REDD+ by considering aspects of reducing emissions from forests in Indonesia. Indonesia is the second largest emitter of greenhouses gases from forest after Brazil, but it becomes the largest emitter from forests in years when it experiences significant forest and peat fires.
