Title: Twenty Four Years in The Borneo Project, Lessons in Becoming Allies.

Abstract: The Borneo Project is one of the few rainforest advocacy groups in the United States working in Malaysian Borneo. Since it’s inception, the mission of The Borneo Project has been to assist the indigenous peoples of Sarawak and Sabah in their efforts to secure land rights, and to protect their forest. In an age when indigenous peoples everywhere are increasingly caught between the extremes of a worsening climate and an escalation in extractive industries, it is increasingly important for environmental groups to learn how to become good allies.
