Indonesia has one of the world’s highest deforestation rates. The project aims at long-term securing of forests in the central part of Borneo, the “Heart of Borneo”, in the vicinity of the Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park and the forests along Leboyan river through a combination of various measures. These include an improved management and the cooperation with a commercial logging company in order to implement the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) guidelines. In close cooperation with local communities, i.a. in the reforestation of degraded areas, existing forest areas are to be linked again.
