In order to realize the sustainable development, LTKL members have identified and selected topics that are in accordance with the potential and conditions in the district. Each topic that has been chosen as a priority, for its implementation program, will be adjusted again in each district member of LTKL.
The Program for Agrarian Reform and Social Forestry is a breakthrough program of the Government that is increasing in demand by the people in the districts. The right to manage the land around them which is adapted to local wisdom from their ancestors is expected to be able to answer economic and ecological challenges.
The redistribution of land management rights to the community, which is previously managed by the company, is also one of the choices in overcoming the problem of land management. The two national programs are seen by the district government as a serious commitment from the central government. National programs that hope to help economic equality and reduce economic inequality will at least touch the three pillars that help the efforts to achieve the vision of a Sustainable District. Among them are land managements, business opportunities, and increased human resources
Indonesia has abundant renewable energy potentials, but their use is still very minimal. Through the priority topics on clean energy and electrification, it is hoped that the district members of LTKL can maximize the utilization of these potentials together with development partners that uphold local / village-based development so that they are not dependent on the central electricity network. The use of clean energy is also in line with Program Indonesia Terang (PIT)/Bright Indonesian Program, the program of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) in order to meet the target of increasing the national electrification ratio.
Forest and peatland fires are serious problems that Indonesia must face every dry season. Forest and land fires have become regional and global disasters because their impacts have spread to neighboring countries. The combustion gases emitted to the atmosphere (such as CO2) have the potential to cause global warming.
In order to realize a sustainable district, forest and land fires must be prevented, not just put out. The districts of LTKL that have chosen to prevent forest and land fires have started with various programs, such as increasing the capacity and number of the Fire Care Community and developing sustainable commodities that depend on the surrounding forests.
Conservation, restoration, and sustainable development will not occur without an increase in the economy. The choice of commodities that have a higher value or get premium price incentives and still need the protection of the surrounding environment is the right answer. At present, more and more commodities are proven to have a better quality when aligned with environmental, natural preservation, including forests, for example, cocoa and coffee.
The sustainable commodities that are the priority of LTKL members include: Coffee, Cocoa, Coconut, Palm Oil, Rubber, Spices, and Non-Timber Forest Products. District members of LTKL have realized the importance of developing or prioritizing commodities that bring sustainability. Premium price incentives and subsidies for environmentally friendly commodities are some of the programs that begin to be implemented.
In 2010, the Government of Indonesia decided on a target to reduce GHG emissions by 26% In 2020, and up to 41% if there are international supports. Conservation and Restoration is one of the efforts made by the district government to achieve this target.
To support these efforts, conservation and restoration work as a system to protect biodiversity, maintain the function of forests as carbon sinks and reduce the impact of pollution that occurs.
The issue of waste management has never been resolved, as the population density has made people's consumption even higher. The latest research by Sustainable Waste Indonesia (SWI) reveals that 24 percent of waste in Indonesia is still not managed. This is still a big job for all Indonesian, Including the district government.
The waste management program carried out by districts of LTKL member is in line with the efforts and results in achieving the national goals which are 30% of waste reduction and 70% of waste handling by 2025; and efforts that encourage the implementation of an integrated waste management system from upstream to downstream (source to waste disposal site) in each district. This program will involve the active role of the community in increasing understanding and awareness (about waste management) as the key to behavior change. In addition, a verified and accurate system-based waste management system is also the main key to the ongoing sustainable waste management program.
Indonesia is known as a country with a high level of disaster vulnerability. As a result of the various disasters, the losses are uncountable in terms of environmental damage, material and life loss. Looking at the various risks of disasters that really occur, disaster management effort Is a priority for the LTKL members.
Planning related to disaster management is part of development planning. This program is in line with the Disaster Management Plan by the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB). The Programs and priority focus related to disaster management include strengthening the regulations and institutional capacity, disaster management strategies; research, education and training also capacity building and the people's active participation.
