In Jambi, it was identified three communities which grab forest land in production forest area in which many of this area is concessioned to PT. ABT due to ecosystem restoration since 2015. Three communities living in those area are Talang Mamak, Malay Suo-Suo, and migrant from outside region.

ABT. The other critical issues is that until recently these three community are still able to encroach illegal land and grab the land.
