Advisory inputs on strengthening the technical capacity of Community Based Forest Enterprises (CBFE) in Indonesia
This Back to Office report describes the advisory work on a consultancy aimed at strengthening the technical capacity of Community Based Forest Enterprises (CBFE) in Indonesia. The work was carried out by the Forest Team for the third phase of the Multistakeholder Forestry Programme (MFP) in Indonesia, funded by DFID. The programme began in April 2014 and focuses on strengthening governance in the forestry sector while alleviating poverty for those who make a living from the forest and its resources. MFP3 supports the improvement of a community-based forest industry to complement corporate industrial forest production, through a commitment to reducing illegal forest degradation and deforestation, providing greater tenure security, improving rural livelihoods, protecting forest ecosystems and the environment, and mitigating climate change.
