With Indonesia’s incredible marine and terrestrial biodiversity at risk, the need to manage conservation areas and protect vulnerable ecosystems more effectively is acute.
Final Report: Build Indonesia to Take Care of Nature for Sustainability Project.
Project Report | June 3, 2021
This final report summarizes the achievements of the Build Indonesia to Take Care of Nature for Sustainability (BIJAK) project, which supported conservation and management of Indonesia's biodiversity, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and managed natural resources.
From 2016 to 2021, the Build Indonesia to Take Care of Nature for Sustainability (BIJAK) project supported enhanced conservation and management of Indonesia’s marine and terrestrial biodiversity, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and fostered sustainable landscapes and natural resource management. To accomplish this, BIJAK worked primarily at the national level to improve the management of forests and conservation areas and reduce the threats to marine and terrestrial wildlife from illegal or unsustainable trade. BIJAK built strong multi-stakeholder partnerships among sub-national government agencies, research institutes and universities, non-governmental and community service organizations, the private sector, among others. These partnerships reflect the collaborative nature and linkages of BIJAK’s initiatives in natural resource governance.
