Categories: Shorts, Science and Environment

The Dayak Meratus communities have created co-operatives and developed business institutions that protect their resources. The communities use non-timber forest products such as rubber to generate sustainable livelihoods. However, the encroachment of private businesses on the local forestland for large scale oil palm plantations, mining and forest concessions threaten their way of life and have forced them to respond.

well done. clear. concise. not overly sappy, just very strong about introducing their way of life and plight. The interviews were well edited and the subsequent character bridges were effortlessly smooth.
