The West Kalimantan Provincial Forestry Service conducted discussions with its local partners to discuss the draft Regional Regulation (Perda) on Forest Management in West Kalimantan. The Perda was prepared at the initiative of the local parliament based on the Law No. 23 of 2014 which stipulates the authority of forest management to move to the provincial government. The discussion, held in Pontianak on 19 November, aims to improve the draft Perda based on empirical experiences in the realm of forest management. The meeting, supported by IDH West Kalimantan and GIZ, was attended by natural resource management and forestry development partner institutions in West Kalimantan as well as technical implementation units of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in the province.
