With the purpose of confirming the operation of the Forest Management Units (Kesatuan Pengelolaan Hutan-KPH) systematically and with clear targets, the provincial government of East Kalimantan prepares a road map for the acceleration of KPH Development towards an independent KPH. The road map, which was declared in the Governor’s decree No. 522/K.269/2018, will be used as a guideline for all parties to support the acceleration of KPH development in East Kalimantan. The preparation of the KPH Road Map is supported by development partners (GIZ, the Global Green Growth Institute, The Nature Conservancy, WWF-Indonesia and the Regional Council on Climate Change) in East Kalimantan, through the KPH Center as the coordination and consolidation platform for KPH development.
The KPH Roadmap entails guidance for implementation, strategy and a programme and action plan for accelerating the KPH development to achieve independent KPHs. This includes the development and improvement of infrastructure, investment, human resources, monitoring, supervision and coaching. In addition, this Roadmap also provides guidance on criteria and indicators of independent KPHs based on the main tasks and functions of the KPH.
