customary and private lands. In addition, these same ruling bodies will be encouraged to establish strict restrictions on logging and to encourage reforestation in riparian areas, possibly as a mandate (NP). Zoning for chemical-free agriculture will be implemented, as will maritime delineation for seaweed farming, traditional fishing grounds, and marine protection. (Wak, Sem) 25. Planting of trees in degraded areas and conservation of existing large trees will be supported, so as to improve soil quality and water retention capabilities across the three coastal landscapes. Trainings in water management and ecotourism will be conducted for youth and women (Gor), as well as a variety of internships and ecological trainings around wildlife management (Gor), seed storage of traditional staple crops (NP), and the planting of medicinal plants and natural pesticides alongside annual crops (NP). Critically, NP will also provide training to improve knowledge in selective fishing for economically valuable captures, with consideration to size and reproductive cycles. 26. Under this outcome,the project will also support a strategic project for transfer of knowledge, technology and equipment procurement as well as for facilitating fresh water distribution in Semau. 27. The following outputs will be delivered under this outcome: 1.2.1 T ARGETED COMMUNITY GRANT PROJECTS , INCLUDING STRATEGIC PROJECTS TO UPSCALE SUCCESSFUL INNOVATIONS , TO MEET LANDSCAPE OUTCOMES AND SUPPORT INNOVATION REGARDING BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF ECOSYSTEM SERVICES Outcome 1.3: The sustainability of production systems in the target landscapes is strengthened through integrated agro-ecological practices 28. This outcome will be achieved through a number of targeted community grant projects, and at least one strategic project. 8 29. Agro-ecological activities to be supported through targeted community grant projects across the project landscapes are centered around food security, including revitalization of seed banks for local crops that are no longer planted and promotion of local crop varieties that display greater resistance to drought and extreme weather conditions. Test areas for innovative intercropping techniques that generate high-value crops will also be employed (Wak, Sem), as will chemical-free agricultural zones (Sem). In addition, best practices for seaweed cultivation techniques that display greater resistance to disease and pests will be disseminated. 30. SGP Indonesia will provide funding for collaborative activities among local communities to participate in selected Forest Management Units (FMU) in Sulawesi and Bali. This strategic approach is based on the government’s policy of establishing FMUs as the primary local ‘operators’ for comprehensive and sustainable forest management that brings together different stakeholders from government, communities, NGOs, and the private sector.
