After several meetings and discussions, the academic paper and the initial draft of the regional regulation concerning the Watershed Management in East Kalimantan Province were completed at the end of December 2018. The preparation of the regional regulations follows the mandate of the Law No. 1 of 1999 concerning the Forestry and Government Regulation (PP) No. 37 of 2012 on Watershed Management. The preparation of the academic paper and regional regulation draft is to clarify and strengthen the implementation of watershed management and water resources in East Kalimantan province. Since November 2018, FORCLIME has supported the Mahakam Berau Watershed Management Center (BPDAS) and the East Kalimantan DAS Forum in the preparation of documents and supported in providing necessary data and information. The two documents will be discussed again with the relevant stakeholders prior to submitting to the East Kalimantan parliament for dialogue and approval.
