TFF PROJECTS

NASA - Winrock Project

NASA Winrock01With funding from the NASA Carbon Monitoring System, a consulting group Applied GeoSolutions (AGS) is leading an effort to improve forest monitoring capabilities in Indonesia. The project team, with members from Winrock, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the University of New Hampshire, Wageningen University, and the University of Virginia, is working closely with LAPAN, the Indonesian space agency, to collect and analyse LiDAR imagery from across Kalimantan.  TFFs role is to collect biomass data in various forest concessions where LiDAR coverage has been acquired.

D A F F  Project

AUS agri for fishTFF has recently completed all activities under an Australian Government, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) grant under the Asia Pacific Forestry Skills and Capacity Building Programme (APFSCBP). Funding had been provided in support of the TFF “Forest-Market Linking Program” which involves training in RIL as well as baseline assessments for legality and CoC audits. Together with the RAFT project, the grant from the Australian project has greatly assisted in enabling TFF to deliver on all RIL training requests.

R A F T  Project

RAFTThe Responsible Asia Forestry and Trade (RAFT) program, builds on the successes of the Global Development Alliance, a USAID-sponsored program in Indonesia, and applies lessons learned on a regional scale. RAFT works with forest producers in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Papua New Guinea. Additionally, RAFT works in other countries such as China, Japan, Singapore, members of the European Union, and the U.S. to address procurement and investment policies that promote the legal timber trade.

I T T O  Project

itto logo The International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) has issued an invitation to small and medium private sector forest companies in ITTO member countries, to participate in pilot schemes to test the feasibility of adopting timber tracking systems as a means of strengthening forest law governance and enforcement and promoting the production and trade of timber from legally and sustainably managed forests.

B P Project

bp logo01Harvesting Plan Study for Tangguh Expansion Project of British Petrolium in West Papua. Tangguh Expansion Project (TEP) in Bintuni Bay of West Papua is one of the project sites operated by British Petrolium (BP). The project was organized and implemented by a consortium team of Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) as a project leader. In the project implementation, the IPB team was collaborating with a team of Papua University (UNIPA) responsible for field data collection, and with a team of Tropical Forest Foundation (TFF) responsible for quality assurance of the project and provide technical trainings to the survey teams.

USAID - IFACS Project

usaid logo The USAID IFACS project is designed to help the government of Indonesia conserve the country’s tropical forests, wildlife, and ecosystem services (including generation of clean water, reduction of soil erosion, food security, and carbon sequestration). IFACS seeks to achieve its goals by working with a variety of government, NGO, and private sector partners in eight landscapes across the country in order to promote and train partners in the adoption of best management practices (BMP). TFF joins the IFACS project in the third year of a four year project with the task of training forest concessions in the adoption of BMP as defined by TFFs RIL Standard. TFF will provide training to eleven natural forest concessions and implement this training program over a three year period.

G I Z Project

GIZ With the Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME), Germany supports Indonesia's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the forestry sector, to conserve forest biodiversity, and to implement sustainable forest management. An agreement between FORECLIME and TFF was signed in 2014, to conduct a comparative study of logging as conventionally carried out in Indonesia and a reduced impact logging (RIL) management regime where the principles and practices of reduced impact logging have been applied. The study sought to influence practices in the RIL study area in order to evaluate key metrics such as machine productivity, soil disturbance, utilization of main stem volume, and retention of biomass.

Armstrong World Industries, Inc.

Armstrong Armstrong World Industries, Inc., the world’s largest hardwood flooring company, is partnering with the Tropical Forest Foundation (TFF) to promote responsible forest management practices. Armstrong requires its wood suppliers to adhere to all applicable laws and regulations, including those covering raw materials and labor. Less than five percent of the Company’s wood purchases come from tropical forests. In those instances, Armstrong requires suppliers to produce documentation verifying their adherence to national and international rules and regulations governing specific tropical wood species.

K f W / GFA Project

gfa logo01 One of the goals of ForClime FC is to encourage sustainable forest management within its project areas by developing management models that can be tested and scaled up. In collaboration with PT Sumalindo who are managing a logging concession in Berau, East Kalimantan under long term license. ForClime FC has identified a need to investigate the logging practices of PT Sumalindo Lestari Jaya IV to see if the application of RIL could reduce environmental damage and be more cost effective than conventional logging, thus demonstrating an incentive to implement practices which reduce carbon emissions through better retention of forest biomass.  TFF will implement a study to compare logging as conventionally carried out in Indonesia, to a logging regime where the principles and practices of reduced impact logging have been applied.  The objective of this study will allow the environmental, ecological and cost aspects to be compared as well as setting the stage for a comparison of the potential for reduction of carbon emissions through improved forest management.
