The Indogreen Forestry Expo is a special annual forestry event that has been hosted by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry since 2006. The theme of this year’s expo, which was held from 15-18 April 2015 at the Jakarta Convention Centre, was “Dengan Gotong Royong Mewujudkan Kedaulatan Pangan dan Energi Terbarukan” (working together towards food sovereignty and renewable energy). At the Indogreen expo, FORCLIME presented information and shared knowledge related to its activities in the three pilot districts in Kalimantan: Berau, Kapuas Hulu, and Malinau.

During the opening ceremony, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MEnFor) also announced the winner of a FMU (Forest Management Unit) logo design contest. The competition for creation of an FMU logo was supported by GIZ FORCLIME to enhance public awareness on FMUs and their goal to achieve sustainable forest management through good forest management practices and organisation.

Additionally, FORCLIME also conducted a talk show on bioenergy from the forestry sector, its opportunities and challenges. Three resources persons were invited to present their opinion on the topic, namely Dr. Machfudz (expert from the Climate Change working group of the MEnFor), Rudianto Amirta, PhD (expert on bioenergy from the Mulawarman University, East Kalimantan) and KH. Irham Rofi’i (entrepreneur of bioenergy from Bangkalan district). The talk show, which has been attended by more than 70 participants from civil society, universities, government and non-government institutions, was moderated by Mr. Edy Marbyanto (Senior Adviser from GIZ FORCLIME).
