File Final report of the Indonesian Natural Resources Management Program components implemented through the Environmental Policy and Institutional Strengthening Indefinite Quantity (EPIQ) contract: May 1997 to October 1999 by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:10 AM
This report provides a summary of key activities and accomplishments of the first phase of the Natural Resources Management (NRM) Program in Indonesia, which was implemented by International Resources Group (IRG) under the USAID-funded EPIQ contract from May 1997 to October 1999. The central goal of this program has been to decentralize and strengthen natural resource management NRM/EPIQ activities were organized into these categories: NRM secretariat support, policy and planning, forest management and protected areas management. Included in these activities were economic evaluations of natural resources and initiatives to support community-based management. The policy and planning component built a strong body of analysis of natural resources management issues relating to national economic crisis, the political era, and decentralization. Recommendations include continued improvement of stakeholders' understanding of NRM issues, increased contribution to dialog between government and non-government parties, and building of more pluralistic NRM planning processes. The forest management policy and practice component conducted technical, economic and policy analyses to improve forest harvest practices and encourage reform. The significant and hard achievements made in this area exposed the need for integrated analysis and economic rationality in the development of policy. The protected areas management component has succeeded in building partnerships and financial bases, improving local and institutional capacity, and increasing awareness of economic benefits of natural areas. More integration of diverse parties, increased policy flexibility and continued dialog are recommended.

File Management Expenses of Environmental Funds Featured November 17, 2010 by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jul 30, 2014 08:01 PM
Through two Congressionally-authorized innovative debt relief programs, the 1991 Enterprises for the Americas Initiative (EAI) and the 1998 Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA), USAID and the Departments of State and Treasury have jointly overseen the creation and operation of dedicated “Funds” designed to collect and distribute debt relief proceeds as grants in support of environmental protection, child survival and child development, and tropical forest conservation activities. To date, twenty-three Fund accounts have been created in 17 countries. Direct management of each “Fund” is entrusted to an expressly created or previously existing private, non-profit entity. Direct oversight is assured by a dedicated governing body, which can be a Board, Council or “Oversight Committee” (OC).
File Paradise Lost?: Lessons from 25 years of USAID Environment Programs in Madagascar (Final Report) by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jul 30, 2014 08:53 PM
(Final Report) The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) was one of the major supporters of environmental conservation programs in Madagascar for a quarter-century. Recent political changes put this investment at risk. What can policymakers and field practitioners learn from this experience about the fragility of development success? USAID commissioned International Resources Group (IRG) to produce a retrospective of its Madagascar programs and their evolution over the years. Long-time practitioner Karen Freudenberger interviewed dozens of individuals and reviewed scores of documents in telling this tale. The result is a comprehensive overview of USAID environmental interventions in Madagascar, and highlights important lessons for all who are interested in conservation and sustainability. Featured in News: USAID RM Portal Featured Stories on July 21, 2010.
