Customary Rights and the Forest Sector in Indonesian Papua

This project provides policy advice to senior policy makers and support to legal drafting. It aims at more equitable allocation of forest lands, the re-designation of commercial concessions and the grant of community forest management rights. The project supports a growing consensus (both in Papua and other parts of Melanesia) that, far from constituting an obstacle to growth, mechanisms for the delineation, registration and enforcement of customary tenure are essential for long-term poverty reduction and security of investment.
