Degraded Land Mapping for Kalimantan and Papua provinces
03/12 - 01/15
This project is part of
The project aims to ensure decision makers (in public and private sector) implement policies to support socially equitable oil palm expansion onto low- carbon degraded land and reduce conversion of forested areas. The programme will address critical governance questions around how to grant access to suitable land, how to revoke permits, how to change land status and how to involve local people in decisions where their rights are affected. On-the-ground community mapping will work with local people to evaluate what livelihood options exists in the area, and thus what is the best way to deliver a poverty-reducing forest management approach.
