Fiscal policies and incentives are often key underlying drivers of forest and land use change, though documentation of their impacts on land use is often lacking. This scoping report by the UN-REDD Programme examines existing fiscal policies and instruments that influence palm oil production in Indonesia, impacts of these incentives on forests and peatlands, and what the Indonesian government could do to create better compatibility between palm oil production, green economy and livelihood objectives.

The report is available to download from the UN-REDD website.
