In this lunch seminar, Brent Loken, Executive Director and co-founder of Integrated Conservation, explored some of the underlying reasons for this deforestation. Using Common Pool Resource (CPR) theory, he identified variables which have influenced deforestation rates, some of which have been described in CPR theory and others which have not.
Loken also presented Integrated Conservation's work with the Wehea Dayak to protect one of the most important forest areas in East Kalimantan and the efforts to integrate CPR theory into conservation planning and policy.
