Abstract: "Tropical rain forests must be conserved to mitigate the effects of climate change and biodiversity loss. The Heart of Borneo (HoB) conservation initiative was developed by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to protect forested areas in the central region of Borneo Island. To support this initiative, an international agreement was signed by the governments of Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia in 2007. The Indonesian government designated some parts of the HoB region as national parks to conserve this region. However, the Dayak people reside in the HoB region and rely on forest resources and swidden agriculture. Thus, the forest in the HoB region may not only be a 'global/national commons' but also a 'local commons.' Therefore, governments must collaborate with local people to manage national parks. This presentation clarifies (1) the collaborative management system of Kayan Mentarang National Park (KMNP), which is in the HoB region, and (2) collaborative management challenges that have emerged."
