A Jurisdictional Journey: Districts Readiness in Facing Global Market
Lingkar Temu Kabupaten Lestari (LTKL) supports nine district members in Indonesia in formulating sustainable economic models for their communities, with an aim to reduce dependence on conventional business practices with large plantations. In this brief, LTKL has identified the readiness of nine sustainable districts, Kapuas Hulu, Sangau, Aceh Tamiang, Siak, Musi Banyuasin, Gorontalo, Bone Bolango, Sintang and Sigi.
The brief provides a breakdown of the total production of nature-based commodities versus conventional commodities in each of the nine districts in 2022-2023. It also shows the progress of each of the districts across five pillars (i) planning, (ii) policies & regulations, (iii) multi-stakeholder governance, (iv) Joint Action (Innovation & Investment), and (v) monitoring, reporting, and communication. These pillars collectively contribute to the comprehensive development of sustainable practices within the districts. The brief also shares challenges in facing global market readiness by the LTKL member districts as well two stories of success from cocoa production in Sigi and sustainable transformation of commodities in Siak.
This info brief was prepared based on the results of the LTKL member districts’ progress reports and the meeting discussions of the partners networks and member districts related to “District Readiness for the Global Market” and analyzed by a team of reviewers from the partner networks
and the secretariat from October to November 2023.
