The United Nations Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia (UNORCID) is the focal point for REDD+ activities of the UN System in Indonesia. UNORCID provides the Government of Indonesia, its counterparts from UN agencies, funds and programmes and all stakeholders with coordination and information regarding the latest REDD+ developments in Indonesia. Through assessing needs, assisting policy formulation, and providing relevant technical expertise as requested, UNORCID offers direct support to the Government of Indonesia. On the global level, UNORCID encourages and promotes a coordinated international response to challenges and opportunities for climate change mitigation and adaptation in Indonesia. This serves to ensure the efficient allocation of resources for REDD+ in support of the priorities of the Government of Indonesia, the broader donor community, and the Private Sector.
UNORCID has its headquarters based in Jakarta and Pilot Province Offices (PPO) spread across Indonesia. On 17 November 2011, the PPO for Indonesia’s first REDD+ Pilot Province was opened in Palangka Raya by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in the presence of Dr. Kuntoro Mangkusubroto, Head of the President’s Delivery Unit for Development Monitoring and Oversight (UKP4) and Chair of the former REDD+ Task Force (SATGAS); Mr. Agustin Teras Narang, Governor of Central Kalimantan; and other stakeholders.
The decision to establish UNORCID as a central coordinating facility is based on a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the UN System and the Republic of Indonesia on 20 September 2011 that outlines the framework for the establishment of a UN Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia.
