This project aimed to develop and improve integrated timber and non-timber forest production systems in Indonesia, enhance value chains and marketing strategies, improve policy frameworks, and expand integrated timber and non-timber forest production systems.
Planting trees and managing non-timber forest products has been an important part of Indonesian farmers' livelihoods' strategies for a long time.
Smallholders could produce non-timber forest products. Trade volumes are small, but niche markets are likely to grow.
ACIAR is supporting research to develop opportunities for local communities, including developing timber and non-timber forest products silviculture practices, value chains and enterprises, policy framework, and extensions services, to support the informal non-timber forest products sector.
