The organisation’s mission is to empower people, both women and men, in order to strengthen their bargaining position on land and other natural resources as well as their equitable, democratic and sustainable natural resources management system. RMI also aims to enhance consciousness and concern, as well as to change the thinking and behavior patterns of decision makers and members of communities in respecting people’s rights on land and other natural resources.
The Indonesian Institute for Forest and Environment (RMI) is an independent, nonprofit, non-governmental organization that has been developing grassroots programs to facilitate community-based natural resources management and biodiversity conservation in upland West Java and Banten in Indonesia.
RMI's constituencies include local women and men of various community groups, including indigenous people, particularly the Kasepuhan Banten Kidul community.
