Project DGM-I


The Direct Grants Mechanism (DGM) is a World Bank funded program associated with the Forest Investment Program. It aims to enable local and indigenous communities to be fully involved in securing their rights and access to forest and land as well as to access opportunities for an enhanced and sustainable livelihood. The DGM is managed by Samdhana Institute in Indonesia under the guidance of the National Steering Committee.


To improve the capacity of participating IPLC to engage in tenure security processes and livelihood opportunities from sustainable management of forest and land. The project aimed to provide a strategic contribution to the lives of IPLC households and their tenure security.

To strengthen the capacity of IPLC households to obtain secure and equitable access – and control over – forest and agricultural land. This is an important key step to allow IPLC household to begin their engagement with FIP and other REDD+ related programs since access to land is critical requirement for IPLCs to obtain recognition from the state in Indonesia.
