Consultancy firm Euroconsult Mott MacDonald has been appointed to manage a $25 million programme on community-based natural resource management to help enhance sustainable economic growth in eastern Indonesia. The programme is part of the Indonesian Green prosperity project by the US donor agency Millennium Challenge Account. The grant programme is intended to fund smallscale projects that promote community-based initiatives in forestry, agriculture and renewable energy. These projects will help improve the management of watersheds and forests to improve the sustainability of renewable energy and agricultural investments, while also supporting rural livelihoods and economic development.
Up to 55 projects are expected to be implemented as part of a targeted programme in Sulawesi, Lombok and Sumba. The programme will focus on local non-government organisations, community groups and other communitybased organisations so they can benefit from investments. The project is due for completion in spring 2018.
