Investing in agroforestry options for forest restoration in Indonesia
Burung Indonesia (formerly Birdlife Indonesia)
Host Country Institutions:
DESCRIPTION: Indonesia has approximately 80million hectares of exhausted logging concessions. Restoration of these forests is a high priority for biodiversity conservation. Working in the Harapan Rainforest (Hutan Harapan, HH) Ecosystem Restoration Concession (ERC) in Sumatra, we will develop agroforestry options to reconcile conservation restoration goals with livelihood aspirations of local communities
PURPOSE: Native tree based agroforestry systems are developed and trialled at HH, that are easily replicable, resulting in improved livelihoods, enhanced biodiversity in cultivated areas and reduced rates of deforestation.
