Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago comprising over 17,500 islands. Covering an area of about 790 million hectares with over 95,000km of coastlines and a land territory of about 200 million hectares. Indonesia is one of the 17 mega-diverse countries in the world, hosting 17 percent of the world's wildlife. Its islands are home to a high variety of species, including many endemic types. However, the full potential of the country's biodiversity is undervalued and decreasing. The activities of BIOFIN in Indonesia aims to strengthen the national biodiversity financing framework and close the financing gap for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity by assisting IBSAP (Indonesian Biodiversity and Strategic Action Plan) in identifying, accessing, combining and sequencing sources of biodiversity funding to meet IBSAP targets/Aichi targets.
