Presidential Instruction (PI) No. 10 2011, regarding the “Suspension of Granting New Licenses and Improvement of Natural Primary Forest and Peatland Governance”, was enacted in May 2011. Maps indicating the extent of the so-called “Moratorium” were published at that time, with agreement to be revised and updated every six months. On 9 December 2011, the first revision of the Indicative Map was published by the Ministry of Forestry, along with a new ministerial decree (SK 7416/Menhut-II/IPSDH/2011). In this report, Daemeter (a) outlines a preliminary set of observations pertaining to the revised maps and decree, and (b) highlights a broad suite of recommended actions to augment the Moratorium for purposes of helping Indonesia achieve its national emission reduction targets.
