Summary
The proposed project is a follow up to the completed Pre-project PPD 56/02 Rev.1 (F) “Strengthening Central and Sub-national Institutions to Enhance Plantation Forest Development in Jambi and South Kalimantan, Indonesia”. The pre-project documented two critical problems facing plantation forests development in the two Provinces of concerned namely: i) land use conflicts between communities dwelling around the plantation forest areas with the forest companies owning the plantations; and ii) high cost of obtaining truly conflict-free lands for commercial tree planting.

This project aims to increase wood production from plantation forests to meet growing domestic and export demand for wood products thereby reducing reliance on the natural forests. Its specific objectives are: i) to develop a collaborative plantation forest management approach; and ii) to establish conditions for the adoption of the approach by stakeholders.

The expected main outputs of the project include:

*Strategy, legal framework and institutional arrangements for collaborative plantation forest management accepted by concerned stakeholders in the Provinces of Jambi and South Kalimantan;
*Demonstration areas for the collaborative plantation forest management selected and endorsed by concerned stakeholders in the Provinces of Jambi and South Kalimantan;
*The local communities and forest companies in the Provinces of Jambi and South Kalimantan enabled to adopt the collaborative plantation forest management approach;
*10 farmers well trained in establishing a small nursery and mass producing planting materials of selected tree species;
*50 farmers surrounding the project sites well trained in planting and maintaining of selected species;
*100 Ha of demonstration area of collaborative plantation forest management established in each of the two Provinces; and
*10 local villagers trained in financial arrangement and management.
*Contractual arrangements adopted for the involvement of local stakeholders as project partner.
