Norway has supported a number of non-governmental organisations working in Indonesia since 2009. For the civil society grant scheme 2016-2020, Norway supports 19 organisations operating in the country, many of them Indonesian organisations, while some are international.
These projects are related to the forest and climate agenda in one way or the other, including work with indigenous peoples and other forest dependent communities, strengthening law enforcement and governance in the forestry sector, collaboration with private sector and forest and peat research including monitoring of forest cover.
This funding is not part of the bilateral USD 1 billion pledge, but are additional grants.
