This BOSF-SL-StO partnership project addresses the challenges of the marginalized and vulnerable target group in East Kalimantan on Borneo, who are under pressure due to limited access to land caused by an increasing population growth and expanding mining activities, which is expected to further worsen with the relocation of the Indonesian capital. The project aims to increase community capacity for engaging in sustainable livelihood strategies in order to improve existing activities and diversify local livelihood portfolios based on an assessment of own needs. Moreover, a model for sustainable community use of Samboja Lestari buffer zone land will be developed and the communities will be engaged in natural resources protection. Finally, the project will involve strategic capacity building of the BOSF-SL programme within community development. This will help strengthen engagement with the local communities, as well as increase legitimacy and success-rate of new initiatives in the area.
