Through this program, WWF aimed to protect the remaining natural forest and its biodiversity, foster conservation area management and develop sustainable production forest management. WWF facilitates ecosystem based land-use planning and promotes sustainable financing scheme for forest and natural resource conservation programs in Indonesia.
WWF integrates capacity building and community empowerment, gender equality as well as other social aspects in its forest conservation programs. WWF-Indonesia also advocates sustainable forest and sustainable resource management policy in national, provincial, and district levels. As an example, policy studies on wood and forest product trading has been conducted to understand its relation with forest degradation, as well as the relation among investment, trade and environmental problem. These studies allow WWF to provide inputs for policy makers and business sectors so they can base their decision on sustainability principles.
