Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation

Despite all these benefits, 100 million hectares of forests are air-purifying machines sequestrating the world’s carbon dioxide.
Sad thing is, these forests are being destroyed at an alarming rate. Both illegal export and domestic logging play a major role in the decrease in forests. The main reason for this huge mismanagement is the information gap in various Indonesian forest departments as well as the absence of strict implementation of forest laws. That is why this research paper is so important because it will bridge this information gap by using ‘Qualitative Research Methodology’. Most forest data that these departments have is outdated or is limited. Data needs to be upgraded and properly archived with regular updating. The paper will look deep inside this matter and will spot specific loopholes and suggest various solutions to them by looking at various methods being used around the world to save and protect forests.
An information centered approach will be used to suggest such solutions that will probably help curb illegal logging of priceless forests of Indonesia. The qualitative research method will provide suggestions that will look at both aspects where there is a need for compiling data on current forest boundaries as well as the need for recording changes in the boundaries of forests. Consequently, this will be accomplished by proposing laws and various valuable guidelines for proper forestry care. Useful matrices will be provided in the research paper that will give guidelines to the planners and forest managers for collecting forest data and forest products manufacturing sector.
