Transparency International Indonesia (TI-I)
Transparency International Indonesia (TI-I) was established in Jakarta in September 2000 by a number of anti-corruption activists and professionals committed to the creation of a transparent and accountable government in Indonesia. TI-I is unique among Indonesian NGOs in Indonesia because it combines the work of a think-tank and a social movement organisation. As a think-tank, TI-I conducts policy reviews and policy or legal drafting, and promotes policy reforms within government and law enforcement agencies. One of TI-I’s biggest achievements is to operationalise anti-corruption approaches and tools into various policy areas such as procurement, transparency in public budgets and participatory budgeting. As a social movement organisation, TI-I mobilises resources to fight against corruption through advocacy and campaign works.
The project, ‘Toward Better Transparency and Accountability of Forestry License Documents’ aims to strengthen and support public participation in monitoring various forestry activities. Transparency International in Indonesia (TI-I) will work to ensure open access or open data for the public regarding all public documents in forestry, mainly forestry licenses/permits. Forestry licenses/permits are very urgent documents to be disclosed or accessed by the public, especially to allow the local community to successfully undertake public monitoring. The licenses or permits contain many rules related to the utilisation of forest areas and preferably the obligation of permit holders, but local communities currently have no access to forestry licensing data and documents.
To solve this problem, TI-I will implement this project to ensure access to forestry licensing data in an open, accessible, and timely manner. This project aims to provide and finalise the guidance on transparency and accountability mechanisms for the forestry public service delivery in Jambi Province. This guidance will include the mechanisms and standards on how to access open data related to forestry and land use, including licenses/permits.
