The Ministry of Environment and Forestry, through its Directorate of Forest Resources Inventory and Monitoring (IPSDH) at the Directorate-General of Forestry Planning and Environmental Management, held a meeting in order to discuss and solicit input in relation to the draft version of the Technical Bamboo Inventory Guidelines for forest management units (KPH) on 24 August 2021. The meeting, which was conducted both online and offline, was chaired by the Head of the Forest Inventory Department, Ms Nurhayati.
The formulation of the Technical Bamboo Inventory Guidelines is one of the targets set under the National Strategy for Integrated Bamboo Development. Through the implementation of this strategy and framework, it is hoped that a sustainable supply of raw materials will be guaranteed (in terms of both volumes and quality). The Directorate of IPSDH, supported by GIZ, has been working on the new guidelines since 2019 and has allowed other relevant stakeholders to participate in the process.
In the wake of this discussion, another follow-up meeting with the Forest Research Center at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry has been scheduled at which other related stakeholders will further review the draft. A final draft version of the new guidelines is expected to be completed by the end of September 2021.
