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.
