The Department for International Development (DFID) is at the forefront of the UK’s work to end extreme poverty. The UK Climate Change Unit in Indonesia (UKCCU) was established by DFID and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in April 2011 to provide policy, finance and development expertise to help Indonesia meet its national climate change ambitions. The UKCCU is working with the government, civil society and private companies in Indonesia towards the shared aim of improving governance for forests and land use. Support for improved spatial planning and low carbon development is a key pillar of that work. This work also complements the wider UKCCU cooperation on safeguarding the remaining Papuan forests.
