The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is partnering with the government of Indonesia’s (GOI) National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) through USAID Sustainable Environmental Governance Across Regions (SEGAR), a five-year (2021-2026) initiative that seeks to advance Indonesia’s own development goals of balancing biodiversity protection and sustainable land use with inclusive economic and livelihoods development.

The Activity has two key objectives:

  • Strengthened inclusive environmental governance in targeted subnational jurisdictions that advances biodiversity protection and sustainable land use.
  • Increased implementation of environmental and social sustainability goals within private sector natural resource commodity production supply chains that reduces threats to biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions from land use.

USAID SEGAR seeks to bring 7 million hectares of land with forest cover and peatland under improved management and help mobilize up to $45 million in public and private “green investment” by 2026. These results will subsequently reduce 55 million metric tons of CO2e — the equivalent of nearly 12 million cars off the road for a year — further mitigating climate change beyond the life of the project.


Our Team

USAID SEGAR team consists of passionate individuals who thrive to help Indonesia in combating the climate crisis through improved governance. Our team works in area including environmental governance, biodiversity protection and emissions reduction, private sector engagement, and community engagement, which is supported by communication, monitoring & evaluation, and operations functions.

USAID SEGAR is implemented through a consortium led by Chemonics International, in partnership with Yayasan Konservasi Alam Nusantara (YKAN), PT Sinergi Alam Tropika (PT SALT), and PACT.
