The Impact of Community Forestry schemes on rural livelihoods. Evidence from Gunung Kidul regency, Java, Indonesia.

By L.D. Kraaijeveld


Community Forestry (CF) has received much attention from academic scholars and policy-makers as a method to tackle the widespread forest degradation and related poverty issues in forest villages. Enhanced knowledge on the effectiveness of CF-schemes is vital for improved policy and implementation of the CF-schemes. This research focuses on two different types of CF-schemes in Gunung Kidul regency on Java, Indonesia. These are Hutan Rakyat (HR), which is Privately Owned Forests (POF) and Hutan Kemasyarakatan (HKm), which is a state-led Community Forestry Managment (CFM). The first research aim is to further investigate the impact of CF-programs on rural livelihoods, including both CF-members and non-members. The second aim is to understand the threats and opportunities that lie ahead in reaching poverty alleviation through CF-schemes. Special attention is paid to the impact of community forestry programs on the food production in the research area
