    • Project

      The project Inclusive Customary Forest Financing establishes a model where the Village Fund can become a ‘low hanging fruit’ to support social forestry. It’s specific goals are:

      • To develop and test a model of strengthening institutions that provide a suitable incentive for market financial schemes while at the same time endorse the earmarking of the Village Fund to support this initiative; and
      • To produce and advocate policy recommendations on the Village Fund for Customary Forests to be adopted and replicated by relevant national and local governments, as well as support from non-state key actors.

      To achieve the above objectives, the project’s main activities are:

      Research on social/customary forest financial schemes to provide strong and robust evidence on how an institution can attract market financial schemes while at the same time attract the support for earmarking the Village Fund for Customary Forest model;

      • To utilise the result of the initial baseline survey and desk study to (i) strengthening the customary forest community in building a suitable institution (for example in the form of BUMDES) to attract market financial schemes (like banking system), (ii) facilitate the agreement between community and establish a model of Village Fund for Customary Forest, using participatory approach.
      • To communicate and advocate policy recommendations to wrap the findings and lessons learned, and develop a strong policy recommendation directed at policymakers and relevant key actors at the national and local level.
      • To publish and to disseminate the findings and policy recommendations – this activity aims to reach a wider audience, which then ensures its impact on the discourse making in public arena.

      Achieving the objectives provides a strong evidence and basis to endorse a bigger discussion on financing the social forestry programme.
