To ensure that the mitigation actions become an integrated part the development process, it is very crucial to allocate sufficient budget and more importantly to safeguard that the available budget to be properly expended. In this study we established a clustering system to capture the relationship between magnitude of C sequestration (Mg e-CO2 yr-1) and budget amount (IDR) in forestry sector. Both variables were classified into three categories, namely Low (L), Medium (M), and High (H) and a 3x3 matrix was developed to capture if C sequestration is a function of budget amount. The relationships between magnitude of C sequestration and budget amount were grouped into one of nine clusters. A mitigation action could be clustered only if it was provided with a quantitative indicator. The results showed that the clustering system developed in the current study could distinguish the relationship between the performance of mitigation action and budget amount and classified the relationship into one of the nine clusters. The fact that only 7 out of 17 mitigation actions (41.18%) in 2013 and 4 out of 30 mitigation actions (13.33%) in 2014 under forestry sector could be scored was merely due to the unavailability of quantitative indicator on the magnitude of C sequestration. The results also showed that the increasing budget amount from low to high did not necessarily result in any increases in C sequestration.
