Seminar: Towards Sustainability and Equity for Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples

Wahana Riset Indonesia team has conducted research since September 2017-May 2018 with various topics in the forestry sector. Some of them focus on the implementation of social forestry schemes and community economies within the region: (1) Social Forestry Evaluation Results on Beringin Jaya Community Forest (HKm) and Simancuang Village Forest (HN); (2) Mapping Indigenous Communities' Land: Implementation of One Map Initiative in the Village Level; (3) Environmental Income and Inequality in Conservation Area and Indigenous Community in Central Sumatera. These three topics are currently in the process of analyzing and writing research results. However, in the process the rides team needs a discussion room with experts or practitioners - to get constructive input.

To answer those needs, WRI Indonesia with RCCC UI get an opportunity to fill the discussion at Forum Kajian Pembangunan (FKP). FKP is a space for researchers to meet to discuss the findings openly. This activity has been going on since 2010-now with support from ANU Indonesia Project. Through this forum, the team will present their research results to get input from the participants.

The holding of this discussion will involve parties with various backgrounds, such as academics (Padjadjaran University, Sriwijaya University, Gadjah Mada University, University of Indonesia, Andalas University, Bandung Institute of Technology, Hasanuddin University, Syiah Kuala University, and Bogor Agricultural Institute) , government agencies (LIPI, Ministry of Finance, Presidential Staff Office, Bank Indonesia, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, BAPPENAS and Ministry of Trade), and practitioners (SMERU Research Institute, PSHK, Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Article 33). From the involvement of these parties, this discussion is very helpful to the needs of the research development being conducted by the Wahana Team and WRI Indonesia.
