Fisheries Economics, Policy and Conservation Training of Trainers - Indonesia 2018

Of the 20 experts we trained on CSF's unique teaching technique, 78% stated that the training was valuable, and 100% would recommend this training to a colleague. 

"As a government person, I never knew how to teach like CSF demonstrated to me. All I knew before was to jam all of the information into a Powerpoint presentation and have 50+ slides to explian to people in a 2 hour period, which was never effective. This training was a real turning point in my life. Now I know how to engage audiences using the skills I received. I cannot wait to implement this new way of teaching at my next opportunity." 

Developing a Green Regency in the Heart of Borneo: Sustainable Landscape Planning in Sintang Regency, West Kalimantan

With the rise of jurisdictional approaches to sustainable commodity sourcing, along with pressure from national climate change mitigation action plans and policies to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), a number of regencies and provinces in Indonesia have taken steps towards embracing sustainable and low-carbon development plans. The main objective of this project is for the government and stakeholders in Sintang Regency to collectively design and make significant progress towards implementing a Green Regency plan that includes sustainable land use practices and better governance.

CSF-Indonesia supports government efforts to achieve a Green Sintang

CSF-Indonesia has officially begun working to develop a shared vision and roadmap for Green Sintang Regency (Kabupaten Sintang Lestari) in West Kalimantan Province, Indonesia. Green Sintang refers to the transition to sustainable, low carbon development principles, and preservation of natural resources and ecosystems. With the programs brought by CSF Indonesia and other Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) under the Circle of Green Regency group partners (Lingkar Temu Kabupaten Lestari, LTKL), the government of Sintang will have the opportunity to achieve Green Regency despite the establishment of new large scale plantations within the area. The Sintang government recognizes the need to engage stakeholders in land use planning to ensure sustainability and more equitable distribution of benefits from development. CSF held a kick-off meeting on April 9th and 10th and involved CSOs and Local Government Agencies (Organisasi Perangkat Daerah - OPD).
