Finding Middle Ground
In the world’s leading timber-producing region, tensions can run high between big business and local interests. In a remote area of Borneo, local Dayak villagers were ready to fight for their forest resources when a logging company laid its eyes on the land. Before the conflict came to blows, The Nature Conservancy was able to step in as a neutral party and broker an agreement for sustainable logging. As a result, the loggers now produce certified, sustainably harvested wood and the villagers can still live off their ancestral land for years to come. Help us bring sustainable forestry to other timber-producing areas in Indonesia.
