DFID Helps Save Indonesia Forests

The U.K. Department for International Development has committed 50 million pounds (USD79 million) to support forest conservation and management programs in Indonesia. The funds will be drawn from fast-track funds worth 1.5 billion pounds that the U.K. committed at the United Nations climate change summit in Copenhagen. The U.K. also pledged to help Indonesia bring down its carbon emissions and mitigate the potential effects of climate change on the country’s environment and economy.
