Gita Syahrani

Lingkar Temu Kabupaten Lestari

Big Idea: 

LTKL makes it easy for district-level governments in Indonesia to protect and restore forests and peat. Their “land use blueprints” give districts a plan to follow for more sustainable land use, incentives to follow it, plus measurement & reporting tools to demonstrate that sustainability benefits nature and communities too. They bring the right people together to support districts to meet their land use commitments.

Gita is a former corporate lawyer whose career has focused on climate change and green investment. Prior to LTKL, she managed the World Resources Institute’s work on sustainable commodities in Indonesia. She also played a leadership role advancing REDD+ in Indonesia through the UNDP.
