Aiming to accelerate the approval of the forest management plan (RPHJP) of forest management units (KPH) in East and North Kalimantan provinces, the technical unit of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in Samarinda (BPKH), supported by FORCLIME and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), conducted a workshop on 27-30 August 2019 in Jakarta. The meeting served to discuss the RPHJP documents which had not been revised after the data validation and verification process, thus, the RPHJP had not been approved. At the workshop, BPKH Samarinda invited two directorates of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KPHP and RPPWPH) to act as resource persons and mentors in the process of improving the RPHJP documents.
Referring to the Minister for Environment and Forestry P.98/MenLHK/Setjen/Kum.1/11/2018 on Procedures for Ratification of the Long-Term Forest Management Plan for Protected Forest Management Unit and Production Forest Management Unit, the improved RPHJP documents as the result of discussion, will be ready in two weeks for the approval process.
