Timeframe 1 Year

The Indonesia Women's Earth Alliance Grassroots Accelerator catalyzes the initiatives of Indonesian women leaders to protect their communities and ecosystems from environmental and climate threats like palm oil extraction, plastic pollution, and sea level rise. Through a 4-month training program to build capacity and skills, this initiative supports leaders from across the country to deepen their strategies, build powerful alliances, and scale their grassroots solutions for the environment.

As the fifth largest producer of greenhouse gases and increasing emissions, Indonesia’s land use and industrial activities are offsetting the progress other nations make towards limiting the average global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius over the next 12 years. Women in Indonesia experience the brunt of these climate disruptions and are therefore stepping forward as key leaders in designing solutions to critical environmental and conservation issues. Through this program, Indonesian women leaders are working in interconnected sectors of forest and coastal ecosystem protection, land rights, Indigenous and local wisdom, gender equity, and movement building. Additionally, the Indigenous Conservation Track (ICT) is one of five focus areas within the Accelerator. The ICT will support Indigenous women leaders at the helm of scalable conservation initiatives in Northern Sumatra, Papua, and Kalimantan to accelerate their leadership, and to grow and scale their ocean, forest, mangrove, watershed, and land conservation solutions and impact.
