Sawit Watch was set up in 1998 and since then, we have built a network of over 50 members and local contacts working with dozens of local communities in Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi. Our mandate is based on the call to support local communities who have lost their forests and livelihoods because of large-scale oil palm expansion and for those in forestlands who continue to resist this development. Through this mandate we hope to contribute to the conservation and restoration of Indonesia’s forests and to promote the best deal for those communities that choose to live with oil palm plantations.
Sawit Watch focuses on raising community awareness. This involves capacity building in the form of meetings and training aimed to inform community members about the impacts of oil palm plantations. The second step is to assist communities in securing their land rights and sustaining traditional community (adat) laws. This is done through conflict resolution and lobbying government at the national and local level for land reform and community sovereignty over natural resource management. The third step is to assist communities in developing or maintaining economically, socially and ecologically sustainable land/forest management.
