Nanang Indra Kurniawan

Nanang Indra Kurniawan is a PhD candidate at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. His research focuses on participatory mapping of customary land in Central Kalimantan.

In February, President Joko Widodo passed a regulation aimed at accelerating the implementation of the One Map policy, which is designed to harmonise all sectoral maps from government agencies into a single map to prevent overlapping claims to land. But as Nanang Indra Kurniawan writes, unless customary claims to land are included, the process is bound to fail.
