Sustainable Landscape Program in Leuser Alas-Singkil River-basin (LASR) Landscape
The Sustainable Landscape Program Indonesia (SLPI) is a bilateral program between Switzerland and Indonesia through Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs which will contribute to a paradigm shift to lower greenhouse gas emissions and foster climate resilient economic development by using a Landscape Approach. The Program will address drivers of deforestation and create capacity to plan and stimulate economic growth by targeting land productivity, sustainable commodity production systems, deforestation, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
