Project title
Sustainable and Integrated Management. Mbeliling Forest on Flores, Indonesia. Phase II
Duration 3 years
Starting date January 2011
Closing dateDecember 2014
Budget C. DKK 9,470,968 million
Funding DANIDA 

The aim of the project is to contribute to sustainable development of local communities, in a manner ensuring that the livelihoods of the village residents is improved without damaging the Mbeliling Forest during the process.


Description
The Mbeliling Forest is a unique nature resort with more than 20 globally threatened bird species, including three that can only be found on Flores. Furthermore, the forest provides important resources for the inhabitants of the 27 surrounding villages. The locals depend on the forest for their livelihoods; both directly by collecting fuel, rattan, botanicals, and food (animals/plants), but also indirectly through ecosystem services such as water catching and supply, and soil preservation and improvement – that are quite essential for, for example, rice cultivation.

The project will continue to facilitate the management forum established during Phase I to ensure that local communities are taking an active part in decision making concerning the management of the forest's natural resources. The forum ties the 27 villages together and ensures that local communities around the forest and local authorities understand the benefits of the forest, and the importance of preserving it. Local people are spokesmen in relation to the authorities; the District Forest Authority in particular.

Partners
Implementation in Indonesia is carried out primarily by project employees under the management of the Indonesian BirdLife partner, Burung Indonesia. The main role of Birdlife Denmark is administration and monitoring of the project but also to provide some technical assistance. Furthermore, Forest & Landscape under the University of Copenhagen is in charge of the implementation and quality assurance of the forestry parts of the project.

Expected outcomes
One expected outcome is that the local population in the Mbeliling area is able to create increased income and participate actively in decision-making process on the management of the forest. Furthermore, it is expected that locally based monitoring of biodiversity combined with monitoring of illegal activities in the forest, such as poaching and logging, is strengthened. The intended result of the monitoring is a more efficient protection of the Mbeliling Forest and improved livelihoods for the surrounding communities.
