The Forest Law Enforcement, Governance, and Trade Voluntary Partnership Agreement (FLEGT-VPA) between Indonesia and the European Union (EU) includes commitments for transparency and a mechanism to monitoring the economic, social and environmental impacts of the Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu (SVLK ) implementation

In 2016, Indonesia through the Ministry of Environment and Forestry assigned an independent consultan and established a multi-stakeholder technical working group to develop and test a national VPA Impact Monitoring System (VPA IMS). A VPA IMS was developed and five key impact areas were identified. These are 1) institutional effectiveness and governance; 2) eradication of illegal logging, 3) forest condition; 4) economic and social development, and; 5) sustainability of community livelihoods. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) has adopted the VPA IMS as a means to measure the impact of SVLK implementation and mitigate possible adverse impacts in accordance to the mandate set forth in Article 12 of the FLEGT-VPA agreement.

As a follow-up to the 2016 VPA IMS, a baseline assessment was carried out in 2017. The five key impact areas identified were assessed against data/information from three years; (i) 2009 - after the implementation of Regulation of Minister of Forestry/Permenhut P.38/2009 (the legal basis of the SVLK), (ii) 2013 - after the V-Legal came into force, and (iii) 2016 - after the issuance of the FLEGT Licenses. This report represented the Baseline Data of Impact Monitoring of the SVLK Implementation.

Besides establishing a baseline for Impact Monitoring (IM), the 2017 IM Baseline Report proposed a large number of indicators to be monitored. A key recommendation in the 2017 baseline report was for the review of the methods and to refine the indicators identified for the next round of IM. In reviewing the 2017 Baseline Report, the Joint Implementation Committee (JIC) requested that the next assessment assess progress made to address the recommendations in the 2017 Baseline report and to carry out a rapid impact assessment using a selection of indicators proposed in the report.

The Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry supported/assisted by FAO is seeking to contract a competent Service Provider (SP) to carry out the 2nd Impact Monitoring of Indonesia’s SVLK Implementation using the Impact Monitoring work which was performed in 2016 and 2017 as the starting point for a more robust Impact Monitoring. The Contractor will be supervised by FAO and the Ministry that will report to the VPA Joint Implementation Committee (JIC) of Indonesia and European Union.
