The West Kalimantan Forest Service invited its partners to improve the draft of a Forest Management Regulation moving forest services to province level




The West Kalimantan Provincial Forestry Service conducted discussions with its local partners to discuss the draft Regional Regulation (Perda) on Forest Management in West Kalimantan. The Perda was prepared at the initiative of the local parliament based on the Law No. 23 of 2014 which stipulates the authority of forest management to move to the provincial government. The discussion, held in Pontianak on 19 November, aims to improve the draft Perda based on empirical experiences in the realm of forest management. The meeting, supported by IDH West Kalimantan and GIZ, was attended by natural resource management and forestry development partner institutions in West Kalimantan as well as technical implementation units of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in the province.

Supporting the latest selected biosphere reserve in West Kalimantan through deforestation-free and sustainable supply chain activities

 

Visiting Bupati Kapuas Hulu ELK

The management of Betung Kerihun and Danau Sentarum National Park and FORCLIME visited the Regent of Kapuas Hulu district on 23 October in Putussibau, West Kalimantan. The meeting aimed to convey GIZ’s support to the Biosphere Reserve of Betung Kerihun Danau Sentarum Kapuas Hulu, which was recently selected by the Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB) UNESCO. The support will be given through programme activities related to ‘Deforestation-Free Supply Chains’ and promoting the branding of the products from the biosphere reserve. “Products produced from sustainable supply chains are harvested or produced by using land intensification methods, instead of opening forest land; the goods are produced in a sustainable manner, their origin can be traced back (traceable) and labour exploitation is prevented’, explained Georg Buchholz, FORCLIME Programme Director.

The Regent of Kapuas Hulu welcomes the support given by GIZ. ‘The new status as Biosphere Reserve encourages us to continuously work on the conservation and protection of Kapuas Hulu district, said the Regent. ‘I hope the programme supported by GIZ will be beneficial for communities in Kapuas Hulu’, he added.
