With the intension to improve forest governance, GIZ FORCLIME supports the development of data management systems in Berau and Kapuas Hulu Districts and East Kalimantan Province. A preliminary assessment of the condition and the requirements to develop the system has been conducted that also providing recommendations on the measurements needed and the road map development of data management in each region.
The data management will be developed in the Forest Management Units (FMUs) and the Forest Service District with the possibility of connection into the wider information systems in the future. From the design, the data management is expected to meet the needs of internal data demand for decision-making process and public data for policy making. This data management, for example, is expected to be connected with the national forestry data systems, meeting the needs of data for monitoring of REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) and RAD - GRK (local action plan to reduce greenhouse gases).
The design of data management and the plan for its development was presented at the East Kalimantan Provincial Forestry Service to obtain inputs from the stakeholders.
