The proposed activities should demonstrate how to strengthen the capacity of the local community champion including women living surrounding Non-state owned Forest Area (APL). This may be conducted through knowledge sharing, guidance, and capacity building. In addition, framework of businesses managed by local community needs to be improved especially at the project pilot sites. The framework includes, among others, business practice and operation, access to market and financing, and regulatory enabling condition. At the minimum, the proposed activities are expected to:

Increase the capacity and collaboration of local community organization(s) with emphasis on women group to support community to minimize changing function of forest ecosystem into other uses particularly in non-state owned forest area. This includes facilitation to improve livelihood that relies on non-timber forest product.
Increase the capacity of the local community champion to provide quality inputs for the decision-making process of the government.
Develop standardized training packages/modules on local champion empowerment that can be delivered online and offline. The selected NGOs/CSOs might use local resources and tools to assess/review, facilitate/promote adoption, implementation, and monitoring-evaluation of the local community/champion.
Organize capacity building/trainings on local champion empowerment (online and/or offline when the situation allows) targeting the existing community groups including women groups (e.g. Bumdes, KWT, PKK, Majelis Ta’lim ibu-ibu, etc.). The target beneficiaries of the trainings also includes women-headed household (perempuan kepala keluarga) in the KALFOR pilot project sites.
Provide support (mentoring) for pilot activities at community level to improve livelihood of those relying on nonstate owned forest area. This includes identification of type of livelihood practice up to implementation of pilot activities to address issues on the ground and bring about concrete results for improved livelihood.
With the support of KALFOR, the selected NGOs/CSOs will also need to conduct engagement and coordination with the local government to ensure a smooth implementation of the program.

Expected Outputs

Concrete practices designed to consider and take account of biodiversity and ecosystem services and local community issues including gender are to be mainstreamed into policies and practices for forest area planning and management and into land allocation decision-making for strategic plantations/commodities siting.
At community level, the dynamics of a community is often influenced, if not driven, by individuals, regarded as local champion, who are capable of understanding local issue and offering solution as well. For an improved decision making and livelihood of people on the ground, the role of local champion is vital in terms of addressing people’s welfare.
Local champion needs to be enhanced so as to bring about broader impact both to their own community and potentially to neighboring villages and communities.
