Objectives SGP Indonesia Programme are:

  • To enhance biodiversity protection in line with the interests of local populations that are directly dependent on specific AHPs and adjacent areas;
  • To improve the livelihoods of people who are directly dependent on resources in and around AHP; and
  • To strengthen the role of ACB in promoting biodiversity protection among ASEAN member states.

SGP Indonesia’s support is aimed at civil society in carrying out activities aimed at increasing local participation, strengthening law enforcement, and linking habitat management with efforts to sustainably use of biodiversity.

The Programme’s Support is expected to be able to overcome the main problems that were identified at the time of the CMP preparation in the two AHPs, such as:

  • Aligning national park management with economic development in the local administrative area;
  • A large gap in national park financing;
  • Land conversion in the buffer zone;
  • Limiting opportunities for sustainable use;
  • Loss of species due to illegal activities; and
  • Preservation of superior species.
