Governance

  The Participatory Governance Assessments for REDD+ (PGA) aim at making robust and credible governance data available to a variety of actors and key stakeholders as basis for further governance improvements. The availability of governance information itself is only one step in the right direction towards improved governance and increased accountability, whereas how this data is being utilized and followed-up is critical. Hence the utilization of governance data by different actors and what kind of positive changes have been implemented as result of the PGA process in Indonesia is being systematically documented.
