Cooperation - Republic of Indonesia and Federal Republic of Germany

study tour lh rw

From August 25th to 30th FORCLIME implemented an expert dialogue among foresters of Indonesia and Germany. Main target of this study tour was to demonstrate, explain and discuss tasks, structures and procedures of forest administrative units both on federal and provincial level on example of the German states of North-Rhine-Westphalia and Hessen. Among the participants of the trip were heads of provincial forest services in Kalimantan and Sulawesi as well as representatives of several directorates of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The agenda of the study tour included visits of several Forest Management Units (FMU) of the states as mentioned, two federal Ministries, the European Forest Institute and a National Park. Most impressive for all 14 participants was the degree of delegation of responsibilities and competencies to the administrative units on district level (e.g. FMU) and the restriction of federal and provincial ministries on issuance of indicatory guidelines and supervision of subordinated bodies.
