Project Overview and Role:


MFP4 supports Indonesia to achieve its objectives regarding sustainable timber and community forestry. MFP4 builds on earlier programme phases to deliver an ambitious set of results on coverage of timber legality licences, export volumes of sustainably sourced timber, and the growth of community-based forest enterprises.

To deliver these results, the consortium members have established a joint technical assistance facility in Jakarta, which collaborates with Indonesian ministries to strengthen forest policy implementation and enable investments in community forests and sustainable land use. The MFP4 facility directly supports the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MOEF) to deliver two core workstreams:

Sustainable and legal timber: Ensuring the sustainability of Indonesia’s governance reforms in the timber sector through the timber legality assurance system, or ‘SVLK’, which underpins FLEGT licensing; and
Community forest business development: Facilitating the expansion of community forest businesses through increased access to skills, finance, knowledge and services for business development and forest stewardship.
