The Country Water Assessment (CWA) evaluates the balance between reliable and available water supplies and future demands for sustainable economic development in Indonesia. Articulated around the water,food, and energy nexus, the CWA explores technical, institutional, and policy options to improve planning, management, and development of water resources. The 2015-2019 midterm government development policy guides the priorities covered under the CWA. This assessment intends to provide a platform for dialogue to advance water reforms across Indonesia, focusing on Java, Sumatera, and Sulawesi---the country’s three main economic regions.

Through close scrutiny of empirical materials and interviews, this book uniquely analyzes all the episodes of long-running, widespread communal violence that erupted during Indonesia’s post-New Order transition. Indonesia democratised after the long and authoritarian New Order regime ended in May 1998. But the transition was far less peaceful than is often thought. It claimed about 10,000 lives in communal (ethnic and religious) violence, and nearly as many as that again in separatist violence in Aceh and East Timor. Taking a comprehensive look at the communal violence that arose after the New Order regime, this book will be of interest to students of Southeast Asian studies, social movements, political violence and ethnicity.

The field of natural resource management is expanding, attracting individuals and ideas from a wide array of disciplines. For effective communication to take place, it is increasingly important for everyone involved to be familiar with the exact meanings being attached to the terms in use. The Dictionary of Natural Resource Management has been compiled to address this need and provides a single source of definitions about natural resource management terms. With more than 6,000 entries, many of them illustrated and a detailed set of appendices covering the classification of organisms, geological time scales and conversion factors, it is the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference work of its kind available. The scope of the dictionary is interdisciplinary. It encompasses terminology from the traditional fields of forestry, silviculture, pest management, mycology, botany, fish and wildlife management, forest fire control, geology, pedology, engineering and resource planning. In addition, there are many terms from the emerging disciplines of landscape ecology, conservation biology, conflict resolution and sustainable development planning. Clear definitions, along with the multiple meanings that some terms now have, are provided for each entry. These have been derived from the authors' extensive review of contemporary literature and glossaries and from discussions with experts around the world. In order to make the dictionary accessible to a wide audience -- interested lay people as well as those with a technical background -- the terms and illustrations are cross-referenced so that opposite and allied terms can be easily located. By enabling readers to better understand and effectively use technical terms, The Dictionary of Natural Resource Management is an essential reference work for resource managers, planners and decision makers in government and non-government evironmental organizations. The Dictionary is also an invaluable resource for all students studying biology, environmental sciences, forestry, geography, geology and wildlife management. It is particularly appropriate for those students undetaking interdisciplinary courses or who realise the benefit of reading around their chosen area of study. * The most current and comprehensive source of natural resource management terms available * A unique, authoritative work with more than 6,000 entries, thousands of cross-references and 80 illustrations * An essential reference tool for those in the many interdisciplinary fields of natural resource management * Will enable readers to better understand and more effectively use technical words * Essential reference book for all students studying biology, environmental sciences, forestry, geography, geology and wildlife management.

Sustainability of agriculture production system is an important issue in the world, which includes all aspects of sustainable criteria, such as technical, socio-economic, and ecological aspects. This book covers sustainable tropical agriculture, sustainable tropical fisheries, sustainable tropical animal production, sustainable tropical forestry, tropical animal health, and Innovative and Emerging Food Technology and Management. The most common, challenging issues in plant, animal and fisheries production in the tropics are climate change, inefficiency production system, low technological innovation, decreasing environment quality, and the outbreak risk of pest and diseases. These issues are closely linked to the socio-economic condition of farmers as small-scale farms are dominant in this area. In addition, post-harvest technology is crucial to maintaining the high quality of products after on farm production. This volume provides the recent research and development on tropical agriculture production systems for plant, terrestrial animal and aquatic animal to establish sustainable agriculture production in the tropics.

'This book provides an excellent overview of more than a decade of transformation in a forest landscape where the interests of local people, extractive industries and globally important biodiversity are in conflict. The studies assembled here teach us that plans and strategies are fine but, in the real world of the forest frontier, conservation must be based upon negotiation, social learning and an ability to muddle through.' Jeffrey Sayer, senior scientific adviser, Forest Conservation Programme IUCN - International Union for of Nature The devolution of control over the world's forests from national or state and provincial level governments to local control is an ongoing global trend that deeply affects all aspects of forest management, conservation of biodiversity, control over resources, wealth distribution and livelihoods. This powerful new book from leading experts provides an in-depth account of how trends towards increased local governance are shifting control over natural resource management from the state to local societies, and the implications of this control for social justice and the environment. The book is based on ten years of work by a team of researchers in Malinau, Indonesian Borneo, one of the world's richest forest areas. The first part of the book sets the larger context of decentralization's impact on power struggles between the state and society. The authors then cover in detail how the devolution process has occurred in Malinau, the policy context, struggles and conflicts and how Malinau has organized itself. The third part of the book looks at the broader issues of property relations, conflict, local governance and political participation associated with decentralization in Malinau. Importantly, it draws out the salient points for other international contexts including the important determination that 'local political alliances', especially among ethnic minorities, are taking on greater prominence and creating new opportunities to influence forest policy in the world's richest forests from the ground up. This is top-level research for academics and professionals working on forestry, natural resource management, policy and resource economics worldwide. Published with CIFOR
