This report deals with state interventions and the problems that can arise in connection with their implementation if the design of the intervention fails to incorporate response strategies from those targetted by the intervention. Our study is based on ”Sarawak Land Consolidation & Rehabilitation Authority” (SALCRA) oil palm plantation development on land to which the Dayak population of Sarawak has the right of use. In the study, we apply a theoretical framework comprising deconstruction of planned interventions and theory of access. We have selected four different case studies that demonstrate that Dayak populations have their own response strategies to the interventions, and that these strategies manifest themselves in demographic changes, altered exploitation of land, and increased migration. These response strategies are contrary to SALCRA's objectives, e.g. the promotion of development in rural communities through the creation of new job opportunities in palm oil plantations.
