Social forestry refers to the management of forests for the benefits of local communities. It includes aspects such as forest management, forest protection, and afforestation of deforested lands with the objective of improving the rural, environmental, and social development. Unlike other forestry projects, in the setting of social forestry, the needs of local communities come first. For this reason, the main goal of social forestry is to grow trees and plantations to meet the growing needs of people in reference to increased demand for timber, wood, fuel, and food to reduce the pressure and dependency on traditional forest areas.
GSFP is aligned with the Government of Indonesia's social forestry initiative.
Social Forestry is a flagship initiative of the Indonesian Government's agrarian reform and is a central component of GSFP.
GSFP will support local communities' livelihoods by onboarding social forestry concessions into a jurisdictional LKTS supply chain, providing revenue from sustainable harvest of LKTS resources as well as payment for potential ecosystem services.
GSFP will aim to secure the integrity of important forest ecosystems in production forest areas by engaging local Forest Management Units, CSOs, private sector, and communities to develop integrated production protection plans for communal forests.
