The implementation of conflict resolution phase III study showed that a win-win solution is beneficial to both sides of the conflict. The whole area is selected based on the amount of the most numerous mining and oil palm plantations which are plagued by the problem of external conflict, both with agencies and communities around the mines and plantations in East Kalimantan.

The results of the implementation indicate that the conflict resolution is done through an integrated way with the principle of "win win". This has been proven through focus group forum that has agreed on a settlement process which is not detrimental to all parties though maximum expectations are not quite achievable. Several successfully resolved cases are disputed lands (mines and plantations) and the negative impact of the exploitation of the mine.

In general, this is well received by all participants of the FGD, however, there are input / suggestions as follows: 1) the government must engage all elements and take responsibility for CSR programs that have been agreed, 2) agreed decision is not only tripartite coordination, but should include aspects of Coordination, Integration and Synchronization, 3) the Court should modify the rules based on Regional Acts, in which all decisions is not only relying on litigation, but also on the non-litigation, 4) It should incorporate aspects of mental development and HR potential of the local community through a variety of training (workshops) required by the surrounding community.

Based on observations and FGD, it shows that this design can be done and turns out to be beneficial for all parties concerned, though there is an obstacle when claims for compensation are too high (replacement land with a maximum price) whereas the companies only want to replace with a low price supported by evidences are not owned by the local residents. However, the principle of "win-win solution" works well on solving the conflict that has been happening.
