The 98,555ha forest of HUTAN Harapan (HH) is Indonesia’s first Ecosystem Restoration Concession (ERC) and has pioneered ERC implementation since 2007 with support of IKI and other international donors. HH is entering a new phase to establish sustainable business operations for the protection, management, and restoration of the forest, with land use stabilized through strategic landscape partnerships for the benefit of biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation and community livelihoods.
BMUB/ICI supports this project with the goal that HUTAN Harapan’s forest resources are sustainably managed and restored with the support of strategic landscape partnerships for the benefit of biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation and community livelihoods.
KFW has contracted GFA and cooperation with AMC to conduct a Preparation Mission to support the Executing NGOs (BURUNG Indonesia, NABU, RSPB) and PT REKI for preparing the KFW Appraisal by:
– providing an objective assessment of past implementation and lessons learnt
– assessing the envisaged HH management concept and project documents in view of the plan HHs to achieve sustainability
The overall objectives of the Preparation Mission are to:
• identify strengths and weaknesses of the long-term implementation concepts.
• make recommendations regarding the concept, log frame, activities, budgets, and specific actions to enable sustainability of the HH management.
