Tropical Forest Management Programme



This DFID-funded 20 million programme was designed to promote and develop sustainable management and conservation of forests in Indonesia. The main activities involved developing policy and strategic aspects of forest management within the Ministry of Forestry and improving inter-Ministry co-ordination. Systems were established to estimate yield, reduce loss from logging damage and improve practical silvicultural techniques. LTS was responsible for overall management of the programme and provision of technical and professional expertise to the five major sub-projects focussing on policy and strategic advice at ministerial level, development of new concession management systems, pioneering community conservation initiatives, silvicultural research, wetlands conservation, and national training programmes.
