LUMENS

LUMENS is a land use planning tools which will help multi-stakeholders in Papua and South Sumatra to develops proper zones or planning units within the landscape that suit the land use planning purposes in order to achieve sustainable landscape, quantifies the Environmental Services of the landscape, analyzes trade-offs between rural income, and simulates scenarios of land use changes based on locally specific drivers. As next step beyond existing LUWES (Land-use planning for low-emission development strategies), LUMENS includes refinement of Abatement Cost Curve generator for REDD (ABACUS) for trade-off analysis beyond financial analysis of land-use systems and emissions reduction; link to downscaled climate-change predictions; and metrics that quantify ecological buffers linked total tree cover, spatial configuration and climate change linked to availability of data in districts, and as a process for stakeholder involvement. Fair and Efficient Value Chain Analysis (FERVA) method has also been developed and revised so that all stakeholders could be actively involved in a participatory process of developing the action plan to reduce greenhouse gas emission at the district and provincial level (RAD-GRK).
