Planning and Budgeting in Community-based Forest Management through Community Forestry and Village Forest Scheme

This policy paper on the planning of and budgeting allocated for community based forestry management in Indonesia has been drafted out in response to the poor implementation of community forests (hutan kemasyarakatan) and village forests (hutan desa) nationwide. The reasons behind the poor implementation include weak commitments on the part of the central government and local administrations to develop collective actions and earmarking a budget for the implementation of community and village forests. This policy paper focuses on
analyzing planning and budgeting linked to institutional relations between the central and local governments.
