The Inception Workshop of UN-REDD in Indonesia was successfully held 30 and 31 March 2010 in Jakarta, marking the start of the implementation phase of the programme in Indonesia. The workshop was officially opened by the Minister of Forestry in Indonesia, Mr. Zulkifli Hasan.

The inception workshop was attended by a little over 150 participants representing various ministries, provincial governments, international organisations, NGO's and others. The presentations focused on REDD in Indonesia and of course the UN-REDD programme.  The participants gave valuable comments on the proposed activities and on how to best involve local communities in the implementation of UN-REDD. Please see the website of the Ministry of Forestry for more information.
