Indonesia has an immense and diverse community forest resources. However, most of the community forestry in Indonesia are still unsustainable. The root of the problem is the inability of the community to sell the timber on the fair market price. Lack of access to timber market, causing the community forest cooperatives who facilitate timber sales of their members, to sell their timber to the middlemen with the price below market value. Furthermore, low bargaining position to obtain capital and limited access to modern forest management methods led to inefficient forest planning and operation. Those issues are forcing the forest owners to overharvest the forest.
Providing access for the community forestry to sell their product with a fair international market price is the first step to solve the issue. One of the methods is providing the community with fair price while ensuring the sustainability of forest by following Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standard. The price of FSC-certified timber is higher than non-FSC wood, thus providing the forest owners with more revenue while ensuring the forest management to be environmentally sustainable. However, obtaining FSC certificate is not an easy task. FSC certification is costly and the cooperatives have limited knowledge on how to fulfill the FSC standard. Those obstructs them to obtain FSC certificate.
PT Sosial Bisnis Indonesia (SOBI) was established in early 2016 to answer these challenges by combining business with community engagement approaches on implementing the sustainable forest management. SOBI is partnering with community forest cooperatives in Java, Indonesia. As FSC-certified Forest Manager, SOBI sets the guideline for sustainable forest management and consolidate the market for our partner’s logs.
