GLA Program


GLA  Program

The Green Livelihoods Alliance (GLA) is a collaborative program between Milieudefensie, IUCN Netherlands and Tropenbos International, in a strategic partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. The program is carried out in 9 countries: Ghana, DR Congo, Nigeria, Uganda, Bolivia, Paraguay, Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia.

In Indonesia Milieudefensie is represented by WALHI, IUCN by WARSI and NTFP-EP, and Tropenbos International by Tropenbos Indonesia. The GLA Indonesia runs in three landscapes: Mudiak Baduo Landscape in West Sumatra (WARSI), Gunung Tarak Landscape in West Kalimantan (Tropenbos Indonesia), and Lariang Landscape in Central Sulawesi (NTFP-EP Indonesia), while WALHI works at the national level.





The overall objective of the GLA program in Indonesia is to strengthen the abilities and effectiveness of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to influence policies and practices through Lobby and Advocacy (L&A) to achieve inclusive and sustainable governance of forested landscapes. The better governance of forested landscapes will benefit local people, improve their social and economic situation, and contribute to the reduction of deforestation.
