  • Seven of the world's rarest rhinoceroses have been found in a national park in Indonesia. This is the first time the creatures have been seen in 26 years. Deforestation is still pushing the Sumatran toward extinction.

    Hidden cameras buried deep in an Indonesian national park have snapped images of seven critically endangered Sumatran rhinos. The rhinos haven't been seen in more than a quarter of a century and conservationists had feared the Sumatran was extinct. But, six females and one male rhino are now known to live in the Mount Leuser National Park, which is on the northern tip of Sumatra. More

IMPLICATION OF ASYMETRIC DECENTRALIZATION AND GLOBALIZATION FOR SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT IN ACEH PROVINCE, INDONESIA

by Jamal M. Gawi, Bhenjamin Hoessein, Hariadi Kartodihardjo, M. Hasroel Thayib

Abstract

This research explains the impact of the parallel process of asymmetric decentralization in the form of special autonomy and globalization through REDD+ on sustainable forest management in Aceh Province, Indonesia. Three key aspects are studied: the policy and institutional responses of the government of Aceh and the sustainability of forest management for two important ecosystems: Leuser and Ulu Masen. Political ecology and policy process theories are used to explain the narratives behind a policy, the actors involved, and the political interests influencing the policy process and outputs. Good Forest Governance index by using Multi Dimensional Scaling (MDS) technique is used to measure the performance of conservation institutions formed during the post tsunami Aceh. Similar MDS technique is used to develop sustainability index by looking at five dimensions of sustainable forest management in Aceh. At the end, a model is developed to contribute to sustainable forest management in Aceh. The results show that four main narratives with different actors and political interests involved in influencing forest conservation arena in Aceh. The conservation policy and institutions formed in post tsunami Aceh have not performed well and the sustainability status for the two ecosystem studied are not sustainable. A model of public-private partnership is developed to manage future forest conservation in Aceh.
