This presentation discusses The Borneo Initiative, part of a series of Dutch-funded tropical timber programs working to create market linkages between certified tropical timber producers and Dutch (and other) buyers. In Indonesia, The Borneo Initiative works to certify large areas of forest land (37 forest concessions totaling 3.7 million ha by 2012) and then link the products of those forests to purchasers.
