Dynamics of Local, National, and International Stakeholders on Promoting Trans Boundary Cooperation in the Heart of Borneo
One of the main characteristics of ecosystem is its linkage and interconnection with one to another and that is why it should not be divided by administrative or political boundaries. Policies and interventions on natural resources should consider the interconnection of ecosystems; otherwise it will bring unintended consequences on domestic and international levels. Promoting conservation and development in border areas is not an easy task. Priorities, funding and management capacity vary between the partner nations. Competing interests between local and national government makes the conservation efforts even more complicated. My research examine the dynamic of local, national and international stake holders on promoting trans boundary cooperation in the heart of Borneo. It also identifies challenges and opportunities in fostering and strengthening the cooperation.
