The Borneo Project
The Borneo Project brings international attention and support to community-led efforts to defend forests, sustainable livelihoods, and human rights. We believe that protecting human rights and environmental integrity in Borneo is a critical component of the global movement for a just and peaceful world.
Specifially, our goals are:
- To support indigenous-led campaigns to secure legal land rights, and to support actions and activists to preserve indigenous land rights.
- To support communities acting to preserve and conserve local ecosystems
- To support cultural conservation efforts for indigenous and forest-dependent communities in Borneo
- To educate the American public about the importance of Borneo, indigenous rights, and the role of forests in climate change and biodiversity conservation
