The recent launch of Indonesia’s National Forest Stewardship Standard (NFSS) is a symbol of FSC’s efforts to encourage and expand sustainable forest management in this country renowned for its rich tropical forests. The standard was developed in a multi-stakeholder manner and was specifically adapted to Indonesia’s unique forest management conditions, taking into account economic, environmental and social aspects.
Aside from getting the Indonesia NFSS up and running, the FSC Indonesia team also worked hard to produce a series of animations in conjunction with The Borneo Initiative, WWF Indonesia and Remark Asia. These animations explain the Indonesia NFSS and its various components and aspects to interested stakeholders and the general public. These animations are short, clear, interesting and informative – best of all, they are on YouTube!
Currently available in Indonesian, there are plans to update them to include English subtitles. Here are the links to the five animations:
Module 1 gives an overview of the FSC Voluntary National Forest Management (SPHN) Certification Standards, which contains the FSC standard criteria on environmental aspects that must be met by forest management units or organisations to meet the requirements of FSC certification:
