Objectives : The overall aim of this project is to undertake in-depth analytical research of the three dominant business models used in CBCF in Indonesia, so to refine existing models and underpin approaches to better inform farmers about their livelihoods investment decisions. This project will also take into account the community context in which CBCF operates, so that the anticipated positive impacts of the CBCF can be readily identified. Expected Output : The results from the in-depth analysis by this project will identify how the dominant models of the community forestry in Indonesia can be improved to maximise the socio-economic benefits for all partners. This information will be translated into targeted communication, engagement and training activities, targeted to senior policy-makers and program managers responsible for Indonesia's dominant community forestry programs - both in the public and private sectors, and the participating farmer fores groups.
