WCS has worked continually in Indonesia since 1995, from Sumatra in the west to Papua in the east, and all major islands groups in between. WCS supports reforms to national laws and policies that will safeguard Indonesia’s wildlife and wild places for years to come. Our goals focus on protecting a number of key species and areas, but we hope to demonstrate model solutions that can help reduce threats facing much of the wildlife and wildlands across the archipelago. Our work takes us from the tiger-filled forests of northern Sumatra—where stopping poaching and easing conflict between tigers and people are our biggest priorities—to the capital city of Jakarta and other large cities, where wildlife trade and smuggling occurs. In Sulawesi and Sumatra, we work closely with rural development agencies to promote village-level “green” development. We also promote alternative models of protected area management and financing, which are more appropriate for areas outside of conventional nature reserves in eastern and western Indonesia. Principles Behind WCS' Actions: To understand the imperatives of wildlife and wild places and the impacts of human society on their future To conserve wildlife and wild places throughout Indonesia To inform people about nature and its importance of life on earth and to humanity’s self-definition To inspire people to care about nature and To aspire to its conservation to shape the public discourse on conservation to engage in wise, scientific, professional and caring stewardship of nature To develop and implement adaptive and innovative solutions To conservation problems by melding the expertise of institution and field-based sciences To redefine the interrelationships of people and wildlife

Lembaga Dayak Panarung is helping communities in a national park buffer zone in Central Kalimantan to plant rubber agroforestry systems on degraded land, as a way of creating sustainable livelihoods and supporting biodiversity. This project aims to stop farmers from degrading more land. Farmers are being equipped with the skills and resources they need to make a good living by using already degraded land to develop high-quality rubber plantations. As part of the project, farmers in the villages form groups. They undertake a study visit to a nearby Bridgestone rubber plantation to learn best management practices—with a small group also completing apprenticeships to gain skills they can bring back to the others. The farmers plant seedlings on idle land that is tilled and prepared using best practices for rubber planting, and are offered an additional incentive to look after the plants well. The farmers are also trained in proper maintenance of rubber plants, sustainable rubber-tapping techniques, post-harvest handling, processing, and marketing, and financial literacy and pricing. In this way, the farmers are not only setting up a sustainable source of income for themselves, they are also rehabilitating degraded land and encouraging biodiversity in the area.

This project focuses on participatory mapping of current and future resources and livelihood activities of local communities, to prepare them for collaboration with an adjacent land ecosystem restoration concession in East Kotawaringin, Central Kalimantan. Puter Indonesia is working with communities in 12 villages adjacent to an ecosystem restoration concession to increase their involvement in forest management and ensure their needs are met. As part of the project, residents of the 12 villages are learning about the importance of forest and biodiversity conservation and the causes and effects of climate change. They are also learning how they can conserve forest, how they can avoid degrading land, and how they can share in the financial benefits from the concession. Puter Indonesia is also helping the villagers to clarify and articulate their needs—social, cultural and economic. Villagers are evaluating their assets, including their natural, physical and financial resources, and assessing their human and social capital and the political and economic environment. These assessments are combined with exercises to map land-use activities, both existing activities and those they hope to have in the future. These exercises will guide the villages in finding strategies for their own development while also considering the aims of the ecosystem restoration concession and other land managers.

REDD+ SES aims to support the development of national REDD+ programmes that have positive impacts on human rights, poverty alleviation and biodiversity conservation. The standards were developed though extensive consultations to define high social and environmental performance of REDD+ initiatives.
This project involves mapping resource and land-use requirements in seven villages in Katingan District, Central Kalimantan, as a basis for the development of Community Conservation Livelihood Agreements with adjacent land managers. Yayasan Cakrawala Indonesia is giving community members in seven villages in Central Kalimantan the knowledge and skills to take control of their lives and develop a roadmap for sustainable development. Devastating fires 15 years ago destroyed the resources they relied on to make a living, and these have not fully regenerated. The creation of the national park in 2004 restricted their access to other forest resources. Borders with the park and concessions are unclear, and people believe the government is not allocating land fairly or transparently. As a result, the community members often find themselves in conflict with concessionaires and the government. The villagers need strategies to deal with these problems, and they need to be able to look after their own economic and social welfare. But most do not know how to set about it, because they lack the necessary skills, tools and resources to articulate their needs, make plans and work with others to turn their plans into reality. Yayasan Cakrawala Indonesia (YCI) is running a project designed to overcome these barriers. The foundation is working with residents of seven villages in the district to help them find ways to develop profitable and sustainable livelihoods and collaborate with those around them, for their own benefit.

The Rimba Raya project is expected to precent the release of 3.2 million tons of carbon dioxide each year through conservation of 90,000 hectares of forest and peat land. Through ongoing carbon sales, it will provide a revenue stream to support future forest conservation activities as well as alternative livelihoods for local communities.
Pokker helped 4 villages in Central Kalimantan to successfully apply for community forest management rights. The next step is for the villages to prove that they can manage the forest properly. And Pokker has set up this project to support them in this aim. As part of the management of their community forests, the villagers rehabilitate or reforest areas in need or develop agroforestry systems on degraded areas, as these support both biodiversity and livelihoods. In addition, with the assistance of third parties, villages conduct surveys of hydrological and other environmental services. The village spatial plans based on all these assessments will be incorporated into district and provincial plans, thus ensuring that all levels of government are aligned and spatial plans take the villages’ needs into consideration. In the meantime, POKKER SHK is continuing to support these villages as they apply for Community Forest Rights (Hak Pengelolaan Hutan Desa), granted by the governor, and for forest timber product exploitation permits (Ijin Usaha Pemungutan Hasil Hutan Kayu), granted by the district head.
