The Conference of Parties (COP)-16, in the Decision 1/CP.16 Paragraph 70 encourages developing countries to contribute to climate change mitigation actions in the forest and land-use sector (Land Use Land-Use Change and Forestry/LULUCF), in accordance with national circumstances. Such mitigation actions are then better known as REDD+ (Reduction Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation Plus), which includes the following activities: (a) reducing emissions from deforestation; (b) reducing emissions from forest degradation; (c) the conservation of forest carbon stocks; (d) sustainable forest management; and (e) enhancement of forest carbon stocks.. In accordance with the above decision REDD+ countries need to prepare a series of the following elements: 1. National Strategy or Action Plan REDD+. 2. Forest Reference Emission Levels/Forests Reference Levels (FREL/FRL). 3. National Forest Monitoring System that is robust and transparent. 4. Safeguards Information System. The basic idea of REDD+ is the land-based development with a purposeful design, so each area is utilized optimally and sustainably with significant gains for the benefit of forestry and other land-based sectors. REDD+ is not something entirely new in forestry development, but rather a solution towards forestry development, and an even better national-regional's development by reducing factors that cause greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or forest carbon emissions, as well as to maintain and increase reserves forest carbon. Sustainable development is a basic principle that must be highlighted in the preparation of national development policies, including the implementation of environmental and forestry affairs. The basic principles of sustainable development include a triple-track namely economic growth (economy), inclusive growth (poverty), as well as the environment (climate change, biodiversity, and certification). REDD+ is an example of the many efforts to manage climate change, as well as an attempt to save the remaining natural forests. REDD + implementation requires the handling of the root problems (driver) of deforestation and forest degradation and its implementation should empower forest sector to integrate with land-based and other sectors that affect the sustainability of forest resources in terms of planning, especially related to spatial and utilization of natural resources in a region’s forests.
