SEKALA has supported the Samdhana Institute to prepare baseline information for assessing whether the priority areas that has been supported by the institute since 2015 have had an impact on reducing fires and maintaining the carbon stock through avoiding deforestation and degradation of forests by securing indigenous and local community rights over land and natural resources and providing incentives through sustainable resource management. The outcome of this activity is baseline information, which includes current and historical forest cover (2015-present), mapped indigenous and local community's areas, land use plans, concession and biophysical data of a focal area at the Samdhana Institute priority areas collated in the form of GIS geodatabase, and presented on maps and/or pictures for presentations or reporting.
