The Challenge

Socio-economic inequalities in rural communities drives cultural and environmental degradation. Lack of access to basic services in times of need causes communities to turn the unsustainable harvest and management of natural resources.

Our approach promotes equality in rural communities through sustainable management of natural resources that are the lifeline of our planet.

Our Programs

We provide community-based services that reduce socio-economic inequalities through the conservation of nature. We believe it starts with the community, and integrated conservation that both benefits humans and the environment is essential for the future of our planet.

 

CONSERVATION COMPACTS

A Commitment to the Community

Our model is called the Conservation Compact Approach. These are bi-lateral partnerships between Planet Indonesia and villages living in tandem with biologically diverse ecosystems. Through these partnerships communities receive much needed services in three sectors: business, education, and health, while creating new conservation management plans. Below is a list of the various services and aspects of this approach:

Community business and micro-enterprise

We provide business services through our flagship 4-step approach to kick-start and enhance Small Micro-Enterprises.
