CIFOR

CIFOR’s headquarters are located in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia, and many of its research activities are located within the country. CIFOR projects such as the Multidisciplinary Landscape Assessment, whose pilot site was in Malinau Kalimantan, and the Levelling the Playing Field Project, have researched and developed integrated approaches - addressing both livelihoods and biodiversity conservation - to landscape management in Indonesia. CIFOR also has had, and continues to have, project sites in Laos, Vietnam, China, the Philippines and Nepal.

The World Agroforestry Centre

The World Agroforestry Centre also has its Southeast Asia Regional Office located in Bogor, Indonesia. The mission of Southeast Asia regional programme of the World Agroforestry Centre is to reduce poverty and sustain the natural resource base in the uplands of Southeast Asia through improved agroforestry systems.

The strategic research of the Centre remains focused on Indonesia (humid rainforest margins), the Philippines (monsoonal hillside agriculture) and Thailand (northern tropics landscape mosaics). In Vietnam (high incidence of rural poverty), Laos (upland agriculture in forest margins) and the subhumid areas of eastern Indonesia the Centre works primarily on capacity building and knowledge sharing. A new program in China will combine capacity building with exchange, based on China’s long and diverse experience in agroforestry. Collegial exchange characterizes their relationships in Malaysia (focusing on tree–crop experience) and Cambodia.
