South Sumatra Partnership for Landscape Management Support Project (KELOLA SENDANG)
SNV is part of the South Sumatra Partnership for Landscape Management Support Project, also known as Kemitraan Pengelolaan Lanskap Sembilang Dangku (KELOLA Sendang), which has been initiated by several organisations to support the South Sumatera Government's Green Growth vision. The landscape is stretching across Musi Banyuasin and Banyuasin districts in South Sumatra province. This is a multi-use landscape that includes settlements, cultivation (predominantly industrial timber, rubber, and oil palm plantations), as well as biodiversity hotspots including Berbak-Sembilang National Park and Dangku Wildlife Preserve.
In the period 1990-2014, deforestation accounted for about 63% of all observed land use/cover changes and forest degradation for about 20% (Bioclime 2016, processed). Moreover, the conversion is dominated by cash crop plantations with oil palm cultivation as the major contributing factor (65%), 10% from agriculture and 9% by the development of forest plantations. The highest deforestation occurred in the period 2000-2010 and was around 30%. However, increasing global demand for other agricultural commodities may soon also increase pressure on forests.
The project promotes Sustainable Landscape Management as an approach for sustainable development at the landscape and village level, while minimizing the trade-offs between economic, social and environmental goals. Under the KELOLA Sendang project, SNV leads the development and implementation of key interventions aimed at enhancing the sustainability practice of commodities, including natural rubber, palm oil and coconut; improving livelihood of smallholder farmers managing those commodities, and engage with private sectors to implement responsible sourcing approach in their supply chains.
Up to date, SNV has support and improve livelihood of more than 2,000 rubber and palm oil farmers in the landscape to implement better management practices (BMP). The capacity of farmer groups and cooperatives has also been improved, including their institutional and business capacity. Market linkage has also been developed, including direct selling to factories, as well as the implementation of Responsible Sourcing from Smallholders approach to 5 rubber and palm oil companies in the landscape.
