How it works

  • 1Develop innovative business models
  • 2Demonstrative feasibility
  • 3Expand throughout Indonesia

The Borneo Initiative has developed innovative business models for sustainable forest management that benefit both communities and forest management units. We support the adoption of these business models at landscape level to demonstrate their economic, technical, social and environmental feasibility. As a next step we support the expansion of the program to other areas on Kalimantan, Papua and elsewhere in Indonesia to achieve our 10-year goals.
