Certificate handed over – village forest Menua Sadap officially established

Sertifikat hutan desa Manua Sadap

As early as in the year 2010 FORCLIME started to support the inhabitants of Menua Sadap village to apply for recognition of a village forest of 1.395 ha to start community-based forest management (CBFM) in own responsibility. With a long process, determination of Working Area (PAK) of Menua Sadap Village Forest has been published in 2014 by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry and the permission finally granted on May 29th, 2017. Only recently, on November 9th 2017 the decree containing the “right on management of village forest” (Hak Pengelolaan Hutan Desa) was handed over to Menua Sadap village forest management board (LPHD) by the governor of West Kalimantan Mr. Cornelis in Pontianak on the occasion of a big workshop on social forestry topics. This means that legal rights on forest management are transferred to the community now and further activities can be started. This will be facilitated by FORCLIME in terms of capacity building on management competencies, non-timber forest products and other vital issues.
