    Fulbright Research Presentation: The Creation and Governance of Indonesian Forest Landscapes and Their Impact Village Development and Rural Livelihoods

    Formal and informal institutions determine how communities use and benefit from forest resources. Assessing how different types of forest cover and forest use interact to generate impacts within and across Indonesian is vitally important to effectively manage forest landscapes. Mr. Erbaugh’s dissertation research uses a portfolio approach to consider how conservation and production forests combine to generate impacts across and within Indonesian villages.

    Over the past year, he has compiled secondary data on policy content, village development indicators, and land cover change from 2000 to 2015, in addition to designing and collecting primary data from a representative sample of villages and households in the Jambi Highlands. By combining a consideration of policy, multi-dimensional village development, and site-specific interconnections between forest use and rural livelihoods, he seeks to provide new information on the impact of production and conservation forests on village development and rural livelihoods.
