The project Conserving priority habitats in the Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, Sumatra was implemented by the Project Partners consist of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), WWF (Germany and Indonesia programs) and Yayasan Badak Indonesia (YABI). This project concerns the conservation of an ‘Intensive Protection Zone’ (IPZ) of about 100,000 ha in the Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP), located in Lampung province, Sumatra. The outcome of the Project is the ‘Conservation of highly threatened Tropical Rainforest in the BBSNP as priority habitat for critically endangered species and carbon sink through innovative management concepts and sustainable land use management in cooperation with local communities and the national park authority.’ The 6-year project will be funded through the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), with the KfW Entwicklungsbank being its assigned government agency. The Project Partners will provide technical assistance to the BBSNP management authority and other government and civil society stakeholder groups with an interest in the national park and its buffer zone.

All projects supported by KfW must comply with the KfW’s Sustainability Guideline (2016), which includes applying the interim GCF Safeguard System, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards as well as with applicable World Bank Operational Policies and Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Guidelines. The IFC Performance Standard 7 recognizes that Indigenous Peoples, as social groups with identities that are distinct from the mainstream group in national societies, are often among the marginalized and vulnerable segments of the population. In many case, their economic, social and legal status limits their capacity to defend their right to, and interest in, lands and natural and cultural resources. To ensure each customary community group understands their right to give or not give consent to the action that affects them, it is necessary to do Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC). Training is needed so that the WCS field staff are aware of FPIC processes.
