Negotiating more than boundaries: conflict, power, and agreement building in the demarcation of village borders in Malinau

Negotiating more than boundaries: conflict, power, and agreement building in the demarcation of village borders in Malinau

CIFOR facilitated 27 communities in the Upper Malinau watershed to develop agreements about their village boundaries and map them through participatory methods. Decentralization reforms created new values of forest resources and uncertainties that increased conflict over local resources. We report on the nature of these conflicts, the stability of agreements and the factors affecting how agreements were reached.
