Conservation Area Management

Indonesia’s network of conservation areas includes 54 national parks and cover 27 million hectares – a combined area roughly the size of the state of Colorado. USAID BIJAK works to improve and protect this network by:

  • Helping government partners oversee conservation areas using more effective, data-based polices and regulations, including policies for preventing oil palm plantations from illegally encroaching onto national parks; and

  • Strengthening Indonesians' sense of pride in and responsibility for their national parks, thereby  stimulating demand for better conservation.
