Aiming to improve the quality of forest management, the West Kalimantan provincial government conducted a focused group discussion to prepare a governor’s regulation on cooperation procedures in forest utilization, which is mandated from the West Kalimantan Regulation (Perda) No. 8/2019. The regulation development aims to strengthen the role of forest management units (Kesatuan Pengelolaan Hutan-KPH) in managing their area. The discussion was carried out on 12 March 2020 in Pontianak. Representatives of the provincial government agencies (Legal Bureau, Financial Agency, Environment and Forestry Service, KPH in West Kalimantan), the Technical Units of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (BPHP, BPDAS), academics, development partners (UNDP and ADB projects) attended the meeting.
The meeting result is a draft of governor’s regulation, which will further be discussed with wider stakeholders.
