Research in the Bulungan model forest: the management of a large, multistakeholder forest uri icon

abstract

  • CIFOR’s research in the Bulungan Model Forest in Bulungan, East Kalimanatan took the form of a systematic investigation into ways of achieving forest sustainability in a large forest landscape with diverse, rapidly changing and often conflicting land-use demands. The integrated approach to research was applied to research on reduced impact logging, biodiversity of the area by using multidisciplinary methods across the landscape, forest people’s dependency on forest products particularly on economic dependencies, and coordination and agreement in boundary negotiation among local communities, government and the private sectors. A brief report on the results of these researches is presented in this chapter
