Finishing 2020 Strong

As 2020 comes to a close we reflect on a challenging but powerful year. We have worked with thousands of families to distribute covid-19 related relief, renew conservation agreements, and build sustainable pathways for communities to manage natural resources during a time of crisis. 

Climate change, social and economic inequalities, biodiversity loss, and food insecurity are major global challenges faced by human societies across the world’s tropics. Many approaches used to address these multi-dimensional challenges have been one-sided in nature. Evidence suggests that such ‘siloed’ approaches have largely failed due to creating adverse trade-offs affecting some stakeholders more than others . The COVID-19 global pandemic highlights the need for innovative solutions to these challenges - restoring the integrity of social-ecological systems. Our Holistic community-based conservation (CBC) offers opportunities in producing positive outcomes across multiple sectors, and could represent a potential solution to building social-ecological resilience.

During this crisis, we continue to engage locally-led solutions to improve human well-being and conserve at-risk ecosystems. Our rights-based approach creates the enabling conditions that allows for Indigenous and Rural Communities to sustainable manage natural resources that underpin local livelihoods.

Our organization is unique in that we address the underlying drivers of biodiversity loss, not the symptopms. Our community-led solutions have shown to both reduce socio-economic inequalities, improve human well-being, reduce deforestation, and stabilize populations of the some of the world's rarest species. The holistic approach deployed by Planet Indonesia utilizes a systems approach to create long-lasting sustainable change.
