Midcourse manoeuvres: Community strategies and remedies for natural resource conflicts in Indonesia

This study forms part of a three-year study to scope the nature and extent of land use change in the three postcolonial Asian countries of India, Indonesia and Myanmar. This report tries to analyse how extractive, large-scale agricultural projects and industrial and infrastructure projects have impacted communities in Indonesia. It also looks at the efforts made by the communities in mitigating the impacts faced by them and the results of these efforts.
