Objective(s): In Indonesia, indigenous groups are articulating a demand for rights to lands and resources and a greater role in processes of development and change. There is also an increasing emphasis on negotiating partnerships and collaborative management arrangements. There is much to learn from experiences with co-management in Canada's north and the objective is to better understand these experiences and explore their potential application in a place like Indonesia.
