Sustainable Agriculture, Thriving Forests

The Indonesian provinces of North Sumatra and Aceh are important production regions for key commodities such as palm oil, cocoa, rubber, timber and many others. These crops support thousands of smallholder farmers and represents a critical component of the economy, yet current stakeholder initiatives to advance sustainable markets and livelihoods are not aligned or achieving their desired scale of impact. The Coalition for Sustainable Livelihoods seeks to implement collective action among government, private sector, indigenous peoples and civil society stakeholders to improve smallholder productivity, economic development and natural resources management.

This factsheet outlines the context, opportunity and implementation of the Coalition's efforts in North Sumatra and Aceh.
