The U.S. Agency for International Development in cooperation with the Government of Indonesia, World Wildlife Fund/Indonesia, Transparency International/Indonesia and the Indonesia Working Group has developed technical guidelines for implementation of Aceh’s local forestry protection plan. The guidelines were presented to the provincial government at an event in Banda Aceh, August 25, 2014.

Aceh is the first Indonesian province to develop a local action plan in line with a national campaign supported by USAID and its partner organizations to address corruption in the forestry sector. Corruption often leads to illegal logging and other misuses of Aceh’s valuable forest resources. The guidelines are based on Islam and Aceh traditional law, working through local leadership structures

The conservation campaign encourages forestry companies to implement better, more transparent management practices. It also trains local journalists to investigate and report on corruption in the forestry sector.
