IDH – The Sustainable Trade Initiative aims to improve the sustainability of international commodity supply chains. Specifically, IDH transforms supply chains so that they deliver, and adhere to, the public good, as defined in the Sustainable Development Goals (see: www.idhsustainabletrade.com). IDH is a multi-stakeholder platform in which actors from both consumer and production countries actively participate within clearly defined cooperative programs. Within Indonesia, IDH is focusing interventions on four critical Provinces: Aceh, West Kalimantan, Jambi and South Sumatra. Within these provinces, IDH works with the public and private sector,
particularly with forestry and estate-based crop businesses including palm oil, rubber, and coffee, to develop multi-stakeholder approaches and investable plans to avoid deforestation, peat subsidence, greenhouse gas emissions, protecting indigenous people and improving the prosperity and productivity of smallholders. The central concept for driving change in these landscapes is production-protection: using a combination of donor and commercial funding to support investments in improved production practices, in return for a delivery of conservation, protection and restoration targets beyond the concession boundary.
