The Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) held its tenth meeting on 23-25 May, 2017 in Pangkalan Kerinci, Riau to discuss items including the status of Action Plans and SAC’s prior recommendations, research and development for yield improvement as well as Indonesia’s peatland regulation.
Members of the Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) also visited the Badagu community in Langgam village, to discuss APRIL’s forestry engagement with community leaders. APRIL has had a long-term cooperative forestry program with the Badagu community since 2004, but there is concern within the community of potential impacts from the peatland regulations.
