Building a Forest Conservation Corps: A New Model for Forest Carbon Monitoring in Indonesia.
Abstract: This thesis evaluates the viability of creating a national service
corps in Indonesia, called a Forest Conservation Corps (FCC), to carry out the monitoring
that will be necessary to fulfill the requirements of Reduced Emissions from Deforestation
and Forest Degradation (REDD+), a proposed global forest carbon emissions reduction
strategy. The FCC is modeled after the Civilian ... read moreConservation Corps (CCC), a national
work-relief program in the United States that lasted from 1933-42. A qualitative analysis
examined the activities of four REDD+ pilot initiatives: the UN-REDD Programme, the Forest
Carbon Partnership Facility, the Indonesia-Australia Forest Carbon Partnership, and the
Norway-Indonesia REDD Partnership. The results of the analysis together with the evaluation
of the CCC form the basis of the FCC model, which was designed to achieve two main goals:
(1) build measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) capacity within Indonesia and (2)
carry out MRV that complies with global carbon emissions reduction
