Steve Rhee

Senior Program Officer

Steve Rhee works from the foundation's Jakarta office, where he has focused on securing access for rural communities to land and forest resources. His work has supported efforts to increase the well-being of poor Indonesians in fragile rural areas and has promoted policies that give poor and marginalized groups more control over natural resources.

Before joining the foundation in 2009, in his development work Steve focused on international natural resource management. He has held research and policy posts at several institutions, including the Center for International Forestry Research and the US Department of State. In these roles, he collaborated with a range of stakeholders, from villagers in Indonesian Borneo to senior government officials in Washington, DC. He has lived in Indonesia since 1996, working on community-based natural resource management issues. He has also worked in mainland Southeast Asia, Timor-Leste, and Nepal.

Steve has had several transformational learning opportunities, including service in the Peace Corps, the Fulbright-Hays Research Abroad Program, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Science and Technology Policy Fellowship. He received his PhD and master's degree from Yale University, where his training focused on governance, institutions, and trade related to sustainable development.

Steve Rhee telah bergabung dengan Ford Foundation sejak tahun 2009 untuk program kerja yang terkait dengan ketersediaan akses sumber daya lahan dan hutan bagi masyarakat di wilayah pedesaan dari kantor Ford Foundation di Jakarta. Program hibah yang dikelola oleh Steve telah mendukung upaya untuk meningkatkan kesejahteraan masyarakat miskin Indonesia di wilayah pedesaan yang rentan. Program kerja ini telah mendorong adanya kebijakan yang memberikan kelompok masyarakat miskin dan terpinggirkan memiliki kendali lebih besar terhadap sumber daya alam yang ada.
