Enough! ! A portrait of Simpang community on Forest Management

Partners : 

Summary :
Working with the community, many things should be seen as lessons to learn, not from anyone else, but from community itself. We believe that the community - especially in villages - is smart and inspiring us in constructing new ideas and actions that are previously unthinkable to us. But even with all this excellence, they felt unnecessary to speak up. It is arrogant if we say that there is nothing or very few contributions from community to the success of a program. Similarly arrogant is to claim the success of fieldworks is solely the result of excellent works of facilitators, consultants and institutions or NGOs. Through this book of 'A Portrait of Simpang Community', we invite readers to observe attentively the community response, expression, and attitude that we recorded during our fieldwork in five villages in and around Mount Simpang Nature Reserve, West Java, Indonesia.
