Following series of discussions and interviews with relevant parties, the Environment and Forestry Service of West Kalimantan Province (Dinas LHK) conducted a focus group discussion on delegating authority related to forestry affairs to the forest management unit (KPH) on 11 December 2020 in Pontianak, West Kalimantan. The discussion aimed to separate, and delegate tasks and functions related to KPH’s role as forest management operator at the site level. The document will become a guideline for FMU operational implementation. The meeting, supported by FORCLIME and IDH West Kalimantan, was attended by officials from the Dinas LHK and Heads of KPH in West Kalimantan.
The result of the focus group discussion will be formulated into a document on organizing and delegating forestry affairs to KPH, which afterwards will be formalized through a decree from the Head of the Environment and Forestry Service of West Kalimantan Province.
