Making research work for small-scale furniture makers: Action research in the Jepara furniture industry, Indonesia

Making research work for small-scale furniture makers: Action research in the Jepara furniture industry, Indonesia

The Jepara region in Central Java is one of Indonesia’s largest furniture-making centres, providinga livelihood for thousands of small-scale furniture manufacturers and their families. Like other stakeholders along the Indonesian furniture industry value chain, these producers are affected and challenged by a range of dynamic changes. To strengthen Jepara furniture makers’ potential to enter the global market, a multistakeholder project, ‘Mahogany and teak furniture: action research to improve value chain efficiency and enhance livelihoods’, was conducted with the support of the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR). This book outlines the research process and the outcomes that were achieved throughout the five-year project. The project laid some crucial foundations for small-scale furniture makers to build on, including the formation of the Association of Jepara Smallscale Furniture Producers (APKJ) and the development of a furniture industry roadmap for 2013–2023.
