In this project, CIFOR is assessing the outcomes of public and private action within four interdependent policy arenas - biodiversity conservation, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, sustainable supply chains and land use governance. We assess the performance of on-the-ground processes within three implementation domains - effective hybrid governance arrangements, Ecosystem sustainability in oil palm landscapes, and socially inclusive business models. Based on finding in these three domains, the project examins the outcomes of different scenarios for managing social and Ecosystem trade-offs at the landscape level. This project will generate knowledge on options and pathways for better policies on biodiversity conservation and low carbon development in oil palm dominated landscapes of West and Central Kalimantan.
