Green Economy and Locally Appropriate Mitigation in Indonesia is a joint program of the World Agroforestry Centre with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS).

GE-LAMA-I supports the commitment of the Government of Indonesia to mitigate climate change in the land-based sector by strengthening sub-national governments (particularly districts) to plan and monitor green-economy development (which includes low-carbon development) and to develop four locally appropriate mitigation actions (LAMA) that have the potential to be expanded to the national level (NAMA).

GE-LAMA-I works in six districts in two provinces: East Kalimantan and Central Java.
 It  is structured into three work packages that are closely interlinked:  
  • Work Package 1: to develop policies at national and sub-nationals to support LAMA/NAMA development and green economy planning, mainstreaming and monitoring.
  • Work Package 2: to develop the institutional capacity of the sub-national governments to develop LAMA/NAMA and to plan, mainstream and monitor green economy development at local level. 
  • Work Package 3: to develop tools and methods that can help local governments to plan and monitor green economy planning and LAMA/NAMA development in a participatory manner.
