MPPGA Global Policy Project 2016: Leveraging Private Finance for Public Good in Indonesia

A Global Policy Project team of MPPGA students travelled to Indonesia to work with the Secretariat of the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility (S-TLFF) in the project “Leveraging Private Finance for Public Good in Indonesia”. A defining element of our MPPGA curriculum, the Global Policy Project (GP2) provides the opportunity for teams of MPPGA students to engage with policy makers and civil society on a real-world policy challenge.

 

GP2 provided opportunities for students to engage with key stakeholders and apply their creative thinking and strategic design skills towards the successful initiation of the S-TLFF.  By researching environmental and social standards and contributing to the monitoring and evaluation framework for funded projects. Students ultimately presented recommendations on four main risks to the TLFF: organizational, environmental, political and social, with a deep dive into gender as a cross-cutting issue.
