The Future of Tanah Papua - Towards Multi-disciplinarity on Adat, Biodiversity, and Sustainable Development
Given the scope and complexity of these issues, and the timely opportunity to contribute to the debate over the future of this unique region, Forest and Society is seeking submissions on the multiple layers of adat, conservation, and development issues in Tanah Papua. What questions do we need to ask for science and policy? What decisions, policies, and programs should be promoted to achieve the appropriate balance between economic development, conservation, and sustainability? How can these decisions be shaped by the right actors, premised on the best available information, and developed through appropriate forums that encourage broad participation and transparency?
