To examine how business social responsibility programs in the forest sector can contribute to sustainable forest management and better livelihoods for people who depend on forests. The project was implemented in the Kutai National Park. Six extractive business corporations were contributing funds to the park through an alliance called Mitra TN Kutai. Through action research we aligned Corporate Social Responsibility planning of individual corporations and the Mitra TN Kutai to the conservation needs of the park. In the process we also strengthened park management through team building and collaborative planning activities.
