Session Abstract

This session showcases results of the Restore+ project which aspires to inform land use and restoration policies in Indonesia and Brazil through integrating participatory processes and big earth observation data analysis into land use modelling. Members of the Restore+ team will share their insights and experiences in communicating science to policymakers through presentations and live demonstration of a mobile application. The panel will also include policymakers from the Central African Forests Commission and Indonesia Ministry of Environment and Forestry to facilitate pan-tropical knowledge exchange on evidence-driven policymaking. Dr Fernando Ramos (INPE) will discuss how Science-to-Policy processes answer current policy questions and trigger future initiatives. Brazilian researchers adapted the GLOBIOM model to accommodate detailed land use dynamics of Brazil. Results from the GLOBIOM-Brazil model successfully informed Brazil’s NDC submitted during the COP23 in Paris. This stimulates further requests from policymakers for more information to assess the impact of Brazil’s forest code implementation under climate change. Dr Sonya Dewi (ICRAF) will discuss combined bottom-up stakeholder engagement with top-down modelling approaches to: (i) upscale and sustain the positive impacts of initiatives at site levels and (ii) ensure consistency in informing policy makers at sub-national and national levels. Linking evidence-based sub-national and national policymaking requires a suite of tools and data that address multiple spatial resolutions and handle localized context-specific scenarios for a diverse archipelagic country like Indonesia. This requirement is innovatively addressed through the application of crowdsourcing techniques to generate subsets of input data for land use modelling in Indonesia, which will be discussed interactively using a mobile application by Dr. Inian Moorthy (IIASA). Finally, policymakers from different tropical regions will share the challenges of evidence-based policy making and how experiences discussed can be applied/strengthened. Session Organizers: Florian Kraxner, Fernando Ramos, Sonya Dewi, and Inian Moorthy

354N Participatory and evidence-based land use policy making – Insights from the RESTORE+ approach (NO ABSTRACTS BEING ACCEPTED)

Crowdsourcing and participatory approaches for monitoring land use and land cover in Indonesia

Inian Moorthy, Neha Joshi, Linda See, Steffen Fritz

International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Austria

The rapid diffusion of smart technologies and mobile devices has now enabled members of the public to actively participate and collaborate with scientists to address environmental challenges. The presentation will highlight the use of web/mobile applications and crowdsourcing techniques, within the Restore+ approach, to engage local communities in ground-based data collection, satellite image interpretation, and online interactive mapping. Such crowdsourced inputs provide key local-level insights on land use and land cover dynamics, valuable for modelling restoration potential and subsequent evidence-driven policy making.

Modelling approaches for inclusive development planning in Indonesia

Sonya Dewi Santoso

World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), Indonesia

Evidence-based policy making has gained its momentum in Indonesia. This requires a suite of tools and data that can project plausible impacts when certain development plans and policies are implemented. Moreover, in such a diverse archipelagic country, Indonesia needs to recognize the importance of understanding the local context, the urgency to address them and the necessity to link them to the broader landscape. Combining bottom-up stakeholder engagement with top-down modelling approaches are crucial to: (i) upscale and sustain the positive impacts of initiatives at site levels and (ii) ensure consistency in informing policy makers at sub-national and national levels.

Brazil’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to mitigate climate change establishes a target of recovering 12 Mha of native vegetation by 2030. However, although this large-scale native vegetation restoration plan is one of the key elements of the country’s commitments to reduce and mitigate its GHG emissions, there is still a great lack of information on the best strategies to attain this target. Here we estimate the costs and benefits, both economically and environmentally, of different native vegetation restoration scenarios. Our approach is based on a bottom-up global economic partial equilibrium model of agriculture, forestry and bioenergy sectors.
