Local Economic Empowerment
for Sustainability and Equity of Natural Resources Management


EMPOWERING LOCAL COMMUNITIES, they who live in or near natural resources, can not be separated from their economic empowerment. The on-going development and exploitation of natural resources by the state and private companies have caused the ruination and alienation of local economics systems. Telapak believes that local communities have the capacities and institutions for sustainable economic activities. Some examples are: Pala Producers Association in Tapaktuan, Aceh, The Indigenous Non Timber Forest Product Association in Jambi, Lampit Producers Association in East Kalimantan, and many others. Unfortunately, those who are already producing now facing the same threats from the national and global economics scheme.

Needed now is a strategy to accommodate the local reality, a strategy that puts local initiatives as the main subject of economic development in their region. Telapak is preparing a Local Economic Resource Center who will play the central role in assistance and facilitation for local economic enhancement and advocacy, to enable them integrate to the national and global market, enrich the existing local institutions and management systems.

The main components of the project, Local Initiatives on Timber and Non-Timber Economic Empowerment or Pro-LITTLE, are summarized bellow:

  1. In-depth studies and mapping of local economics' potency, problems, and opportunity, and their ecological-social-cultural values, in relation of sustainable local natural resource management.
  2. Assistance and facilitation of the existing local economic activities, enable them to integrate to, and survive in, the national and global market and economy, and
  3. The setting up of a Local Economic Resource Center to ensure that local economic initiatives be supported and assisted in the future.
