The Sustainable Jurisdictions Indicators measure the commitment of a commodity-producing region that is sustainable and inclusive. Twenty-three indicators build on Indonesia's legal framework as well as various international commitments, especially the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
These indicators are expected to provide an enabling environment for accelerating the fulfilment of various certification schemes such as the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil (ISPO) and the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The 23 indicators are divided into four pillars: Environmental, Social, Economic, and Governance, and will be displayed on a platform to provide an overview of the commitments and performance of the regions nationally as part of a company’s purchasing decisions and reporting against global sustainability policies.
Several districts have committed to piloting the indicators across Aceh, Riau, Kalimantan and Sulawesi, including in the Siak district of the Siak-Pelalawan Landscape Programme facilitated by Proforest and Daemeter in Riau Province. Proforest provided support to Bappenas (Indonesia Ministry of National Development Planning) in the publication of information on the Indicators and supported a FORTASBI delegate to represent small holder communities at the B20 launch event in Bali in 2022 run by LTKL. This was under Proforest’s Production Landscape Programme, with funds from UK Aid via the UK government’s Forest Governance, Markets and Climate programme.
