Batu rajang map for partneship

The Batu Rajang community prepared a map for a proposed forestry partnership and sent it to the forest concession, PT Inhutani I Labanan, which is located in the area of the Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) of Berau Barat, East Kalimantan on 9 January. The developed map follows the MoU on forest tenure conflict resolution within the forest management unit. An area of 1,705 Ha has been agreed upon between a forest concession company and the Batu Rajang community represented by three forest farmer groups (Bangen Tawai, Pebeka Tawai, Tiga Tawai), as a site for the implementation of forestry partnership activities, such as agroforestry, medicine plant and silvo pasture. The KPHP Berau Barat leads the forest tenurial conflict resolution process with support from GIZ.

Once the legal basis is fulfilled, the next step will be to develop a management plan for the partnership area.
