All of Indonesia's
Territory is a Conservation Area
Telapak's objective is to conduct high quality research on key natural resources management issues, translates the results into persuasive policy advocacy at national and local levels, and to work closely with local NGOs and communities to build their own capacities as resource managers and advocates.
Telapak's governing philosophy is that "all of Indonesia's territory is a conservation area" in the sense that biodiversity conservation, natural resource-based production, and the empowerment and livelihood security of resource-dependent communities must be integrated in an approach to sustainability and equity that encompassed all aspects of the land- and seascape from the most remote forests and reefs to farmers' fields and fishing grounds. (So too, research, local empowerment and capacity-building, and policy advocacy must be carefully integrated to be mutually supportive and synergistic.)
