About The Asia Foundation

The Asia Foundation is conducting SETAPAK 2 Program, supported by the British Government on Climate Change Unit ( UKCCU ). The program aims to improve forest and land governance in Indonesia, with a focus on increasing transparency and accountability and strengthening rule of law in all decisions around forest and land use, by supporting Indonesia’s vibrant civil society movements and media to play a stronger role in forest and land governance.

Approaches include supporting external oversight of government performance and law enforcement; field monitoring of land use infractions and forestry crimes, and reporting of illegalities. In addition, gender mainstreaming, raising public awareness, and assisting citizens to form constituencies and express their needs and preferences with regard to environmental policies.

The program is operates in eight provinces: Aceh, Riau, South Sumatra, West Sumatra, West Kalimantan, East Kalimantan, North Kalimantan, and Central Sulawesi.
