The project includes cases studies at national and local level in Indonesia, Suriname/Guyana and Democratic Republic of the Congo and comparative analysis among countries. The project duration is three years; September 2015 to August 2018.

SAFARI is implemented by the European Forest Institute, University of Hamburg, Germany and University of Leuven, Belgium. The project is financed by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL).
