On June 17th, 2016 GIZ FORCLIME organized a presentation with subsequent discussion round for relevant stakeholders who work with the ‘cut control mechanism’ i.e. all regulations related to the establishment, regulation, and monitoring of the annual cutting target (JPT) and Reduced Impact Logging – Carbon (RIL-C). Based on the RIL-C study carried out by FORCLIME and the Tropical Forest Foundation (TFF) in the concession of PT Inhutani II in Malinau, North Kalimantan, lessons learned were presented to the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), particularly the Directorate of Production Forest Management, the Directorate of Forestry Revenues and Forest Product Circulation and the Directorate of Climate Change Mitigation.
The discussion round covered the following guiding questions: How could the utilization standard be optimized in terms of utilizing the main stem volume more effectively? Together with the review of the Forest Management Inventory Guideline on FMU level, which options are there to improve the inventory requirements within active forest concessions? Furthermore the spectrum of the cut control mechanism and potentials for silviculture in production forests were put on the table. One of the questions was whether there is a need for reviewing the current silvicultural guideline both in terms of establishing clear guidance for logging contractors, though FMUs in the future, and also in terms of supporting synergies between FSC (including RIL) and SVLK/ PHPL certification to ensure wider international market access for green products.
