"Through this Memorandum of Understanding, we are delighted to deepen our partnership with the Government of Indonesia to address the challenges of climate change," said Cohen in a press release on Friday.
 
KLHK and USAID plan to work together to support sustainable forest management, including tree planting; land rehabilitation; management and restoration of peatlands and mangroves; and conservation of wildlife biodiversity, especially iconic species such as the orangutan.
 
KLHK and USAID also intend to share information, exchange knowledge, develop and implement joint programs, and collaborate on various activities and research. 
 
To support KLHK's objectives, USAID will coordinate closely with the Government of Indonesia at all levels and with stakeholders at the local, national, and international levels.
