Synthesis of qualitative social sciences results on land use change and governance in Jambi, Indonesia

Over the past few decades, significant changes in land use, both legally and practically, have occurred in Jambi, Indonesia. These changes have led to multi-layered conflicts between the actors involved in land use and have contributed to socioeconomic-environmental transition. At the same time, REDD+ pilot projects and other initiatives and programs related to climate change mitigation, environmental protection, and sustainable development have also been implemented here.
This study, therefore, will review and synthesize a series of qualitative social studies from the project C02 (Social transformation processes and sustainable use of resources in rural Jambi) conducted from 2012 to the present. Finally, it will suggest policy recommendations related to sustainable landscape development in the project area.
