Agus Purnomo

Indonesian delegation head, Agus Purnomo, talks about Indonesian’s connection to the process as result of the Bali conference in 2007, and how that summit helped increase public awareness of the topic in his country. He said his country has “clear incentives” to become a protagonist in the UN process, and he outlines some of the steps Indonesia is taking to curb emissions from deforestation, including “massive” tree planting initiatives with the aim of making the Indonesian forestry sector a net carbon sink by 2015.
