We grow movement among farmers to fight climate change and save Sumatran Wildlife through agroforestry
Hutanriau Foundation ( Yayasan Hutanriau ) was founded in 2015 to support forest communities in Riau. We encourage community empowerment and development through agroforestry and carry the concepts from cultivation to market. We play a dynamic role in advising indigenous peoples of their rights and roles in a nature based livelihood. We support government agencies in analyzing forestry data. We empower forest management units (KPH) in improving implementation of policies in forest management.
The biggest achievement in the period is our organization successfully gathered Geo-Spatial data related to forest concession and approval for the district of Siak and Pelalawan in Riau Province, Indonesia. This data is importance to assist the Presidential decree on National Strategic area. This data also enable indigenous people to benefit from it by securing their rights in the designated customary land. We also become part of team members that successfully analyzed data for Riau One Map program. In the last two years, we have working on empowering people who live surrounding protected forest of Bukit Betabuh. And we’ve secured up to 900 hectares of the protected forest.
We believe by enhancing rural livelihoods of forest community is a movement to fight climate change and deforestation. It also contributing to sustainable development and social economy equity in natural resources governance. And so, by implementing our mission Hutanriau become the reference to actualize the concept of when the community is prosperous, the forest will be sustainable.
We start with data, analyze from the need of local community and start from what they have to build their sustainable livelihoods
Empowering forest community to create their own security by optimizing livelihoods from non-timber forest products.
