The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis.

Green Economy and Locally Appropiate Mitigation in Indonesia (GE-LAMA-I) works in six districts in two provinces i.e. East Kalimantan and Central Java. It is a joint program by the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) and GIZ. In implementing this development cooperation project, GIZ is collaborating with the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) on behalf of the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). GE-LAMA-I supports the commitment of the Indonesian government mitigating climate change in land based sector by strengthening the sub-national governments (particularly districts) to plan and monitor green economy development (which include low carbon development objectives) and to develop four locally appropriate mitigation actions (LAMA) that have the potential to be scaled up to national level (NAMA). Two of the four LAMAs are being developed in Central Java; these are: Climate smart agriculture in rice cultivation (Smart Rice) and Agroforestry for degraded land rehabilitation (Agroforestry).

GE-LAMA-I is structured into three work packages which are closely interlinked:
Work Package 1: to develop policies at national and sub-nationals to support LAMA/NAMA development and green economy planning, mainstreaming and monitoring

Work Package 2: to develop the institutional capacity of the sub nationals to develop LAMA/NAMA and to plan, mainstream and monitor green economy development at local level

Work Package 3: to develop tools and methods that can help the local governments to plan and monitor green economy plan and LAMA/NAMA development in participatory way.
