Aiming to support the development of forest planning training, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) through the Directorate of Inventory and Monitoring of Forest Resources (IPSDH) in collaboration with the Environmental and Forestry Education and Training Center (BD LHK) Samarinda and FORCLIME conducted a training on Forest Inventory on 4-8 November 2019 in Samarinda, East Kalimantan. Through this training the knowledge and skills of the participants in designing and carrying out forest inventory activities will increased. The training was attended by 20 participants representing Lecturers (widyaiswara) of BD LHK Samarinda, BD LHK Makassar, BD LHK Bogor; the planning staff of the Forest Management Units (KPH) of Nunukan, Tana Tidung and Berau Barat; the MoEF’s technical unit in Samarinda (BPKH Unit IV and the Samboja Natural Resource and Conservation Technology R&D Center), and Manager of the Loa Haur Special Purpose Forest (KHDTK).
As part of the training, participants also conducted fieldwork in two forest inventory plots in the KHDTK Loa Haur. The results are then analysed to calculate the estimated potency of the stands. The analized data will be used for preparing of the Long-Term Management Plan of the KHDTK Loa Haur.
