Forest Management Units Landscape, West Sulawesi, Indonesia

PT Hatfield Indonesia was selected by Chemonics International to support BIJAK (Bangun Indonesia untuk Jaga Alam demi Keberlanjutan) with evaluating project impacts on behalf of the Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS). BIJAK is a five-year USAID project designed to promote enduring changes in individual and organizational behavior to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and conserve valuable marine and terrestrial biodiversity. The Government of Indonesia’s Forestry Management Unit (FMU) approach is a significant variable in BIJAK’s approach to reducing deforestation and biodiversity loss.

The objective of the project is to evaluate the Government of Indonesia’s investment in FMU development from 2010 to 2017, particularly in relation to regional economies, poverty reduction, and sustainability of natural resources. The project will also identify lessons learned from eight years of FMU development and provide recommendations for improvement of FMU management at the FMU level and at provincial and national levels.

PT Hatfield Indonesia has worked with FMUs in many provinces in Indonesia related to REDD+, community livelihood and agroforestry programs, and biodiversity conservation. PTHI has also worked with almost all Directorate Generals within the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, and provincial governments in Indonesia. Based on these experiences, PTHI is well positioned to support the BIJAK project and help ensure it will continue to contribute to the sustainable use of natural resources in Indonesia.
