The policies are manifested in terms of regulations and the establishment of working groups and new agreements, in addition to demonstration activities supported through bilatera l or multilateral collaboration. This paper documents the process of IndonesiaĆ¢??s eng agement on REDD+ policy through a historical perspective since the 1990Ć¢??s until the p resent, the institutional and legal framework of REDD+ in Indonesia and the strategy to implement REDD+
