This event presented innovative findings from empirical research on forest conservation in Indonesia. It launched the recently published book by Dr. Jonas Hein, “Political Ecology of REDD+ in Indonesia: Agrarian Conflicts and Forest Carbon” and discussed its insights at the nexus of development research, international climate governance and human rights. The book presentation was followed by an expert roundtable that brought together representatives from government, development cooperation, civil society and research to discuss the implications of agrarian conflicts for forest conservation and the relevance of free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) for human rights and conservation policy.
