This partnership scheme refers to the regulation of the Minister for Environment and Forestry No.P.83/Menlhk/setjen/Kum.1/10/2016 concerning social forestry. FORCLIME supported the community of the Tepian Buah Village starting with the preparation and development of the partnership paper until the Minister's Decree was issued.
