  4. Prod­ucts from com­mu­nity for­est bear­ing LEI Logo have been traded in EU mar­ket through Maisons Du Monde (MDM).

Capac­ity Build­ing towards CoC for SME’s
In coop­er­a­tion with IFC LEI recruited 15 train­ers to pro­vide train­ing and capac­ity build­ing to fur­ni­ture and hand­i­craft indus­try busi­ness oper­a­tors obtain Chain of Cus­tody cer­tifi­cate from LEI.

Increased avail­abil­ity of LEI Cer­ti­fied Prod­uct from Com­mu­nity Based Forests
As an effort to pro­vide Green Indone­sian Prod­ucts from sus­tain­able Indone­sian for­est, 4 (four) reli­able insti­tu­tions namely LEI, ASMINDO, PT. Setyami­tra Bhak­tiper­sada and Kop­erasi Peruma­han Wana Nusan­tara (KPWN) have formed an Alliance of Sus­tain­able Com­mu­nity Man­age­ment For­est Based Green Indone­sian Prod­uct Sup­port­ers. The alliance was estab­lished to improve the avail­abil­ity of envi­ron­men­tally friendly prod­uct in the mar­ket. Envi­ron­men­tally friendly prod­ucts are prod­ucts orig­i­nated from legal and sus­tain­able com­mu­nity forests and are of high quality.

The coop­er­a­tion of this alliance was marked by the sign­ing of a Mem­o­ran­dum of Under­stand­ing by all 4 instu­tions, LEI, ASMINDO, PT. Setyami­tra Bhak­tiper­sada and Kop­erasi Peruma­han Wana Nusan­tara (KPWN), wit­nessed by Indonesia’s Vice Pres­i­dent Jusuf Kalla at the open­ing of Inter­na­tional Fur­ni­ture and Craft Fari Indone­sia 2008 at JIExpo Kemay­oran, Jakarta on March 7, 2008

Trad­ing Area and Net­work Expan­sion
Cer­ti­fied for­est man­age­ments (in Gunung Kidul and Wono­giri areas) are encour­aged to be cer­ti­fied area expan­sion source and cer­ti­fied tim­ber improve­ment for tim­ber indus­tries par­tic­u­larly in Java. A mar­ket alliance for cer­ti­fied tim­ber has been estab­lished in 2007 to improve trade net­work in coop­er­a­tion with ASMINDO Komda Surakarta. The alliance makes trad­ing chain more direct from farm­ers to pro­duc­ers (indus­tries), avoid­ing stock­i­est, to increase tim­ber prices at farmer level.

Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Ben­e­fit for Com­mu­nity Based For­est Man­age­ment Units
For com­mu­nity for­est man­age­ment oper­a­tors, cer­ti­fi­ca­tion opens the mar­ket access for prod­ucts orig­i­nated from com­mu­nity for­est, enables higher sell­ing price at farmer level, and opens com­mu­nity the access for for­est expan­sion for land reha­bil­i­ta­tion and community’s econ­omy improve­ment activities.

While for indige­nous for­est man­age­ment oper­a­tor, LEI cer­ti­fi­ca­tion can be used as a proxy through mar­ket recog­ni­tion to pro­vide recognition/acknowledgement over the community’s capac­ity in man­ag­ing its for­est. Rec­og­nized by the mar­ket, cer­ti­fi­ca­tion sup­ports the efforts of the indige­nous com­mu­nity and other assist­ing par­ties to con­vince the gov­ern­ment that they are enti­tled the rights to man­age the for­est. This is also done to obtain other recog­ni­tion such as to be pro­vided suf­fi­cient space in per­form­ing sus­tain­able for­est man­age­ment prac­tices. Other par­ties work­ing on indige­nous com­mu­nity advo­cacy may use the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to pro­vide advo­cacy efforts on the indige­nous for­est man­age­ment rights issues.
