Siregar, Iskandar Z. Siregar, S. 6 million ha of designated forest,1 has the third largest area of tropical forest in the world. According to the Indonesia Constitution, the forest area is administered by the Government through the Ministry of Forestry (MoF) as a national resource. 2 million ha of limited production or production forest. 0 million ha have been identified as being available to be cleared and used for other purposes (MoF 2006). The natural production forest has been commercially utilized since 1960, becoming one of the main drivers of the Indonesian economy from 1980 to 1990 when a substantial global market share of the tropical timber trade was secured through exports of logs, sawn timber, plywood and other forest products.

The involvement of local communities in the reforestation program has also been very low (Siregar et al. 2007). This chapter illustrates the multiple causes of degradation of forests in Indonesia, some of the underlying conflicts involved in the management of forest resources and the difficulties encountered in many restoration and rehabilitation efforts attempting to operate on a landscape scale. The chapter is based on the Grand Forest Park restoration project in Jambi Province. This project was funded by ITTO based on a proposal submitted jointly by the Faculty of Forestry, Bogor Agricultural University and the Directorate General of Land Rehabilitation and Social Forestry, Ministry of Forestry, Indonesia.
