The ACM Programme Newsletter is designed to contribute to
enhancing mutual learning and sharing experiences among the
team members, and iterating through the ACM process.
Newsletter (Malinau Site, East Kalimantan)
The ACM Newsletter for the Malinau site in East Kalimantan
is intended to facilitate communication between 27 communities
and ACM researchers, as well as other groups. At the Malinau
site ACM researchers are examining conflict and collaboration
among communities and with other stakeholders concerning boundaries
and land uses. In 1999-2000 action facilitated by CIFOR included
participatory mapping and a cross-visit to Paser district
to observe the impacts of oil palm plantations. The newsletter
is issued according to need when issues occur or results are
available. The Malinau project occurs under the umbrella of
the Bulungan Research Forest.
