The INCAS framework uses an event driven process to quantify the impact of disturbances on forests, from which greenhouse gas emissions and removals are derived.
Remote sensing data has been processed by the Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) to produce annual forest cover change for 2000 to 2012. Processing of the 2013 and 2014 data is currently underway.
This data is integrated with land management information and biophysical data from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, and other sources, to identify where, when and what type of activity caused the change.
A carbon accounting model then tracks the flows of carbon to produce estimates of greenhouse gas emissions and removals by carbon pool.
The first national results from INCAS can be broken down by the REDD+ activities of: Deforestation, Forest Degradation, Sustainable Management of Forests and the Enhancement of Carbon Stocks. This includes emissions from biological oxidation and fire on disturbed peatlands.
The results cover all forests and peatlands, all carbon pools, relevant gases and activities at all scales across the whole country.
These results and detailed descriptions of the methods used are now available on the new interactive INCAS website shown here.
The results are presented in great detail, showing the source of emissions, the activity that caused them, the land type they occurred on and many more useful subsets.
The website allows you to access, download and use the results produced by INCAS, for the whole country and for all 34 provinces individually.
I invite you to visit the INCAS Landscapes Laboratory here at GLF where we have more detailed information about the INCAS methods and results, and our team can answer your questions.
The Government of Indonesia welcomes your ongoing collaboration and support as we continue to further develop the capabilities of INCAS to cover the entire AFOLU sector.
Thank you for your time and kind attention.
