With the purpose of supporting the Kapuas Hulu Forest Management Unit (KPH Kapuas Hulu) to get the latest data and information on forest potential in its working area, the KPH Kapuas Hulu, supported by the West Kalimantan Forestry Service and FORCLIME, conducted a training on Assessing Forest Potential of the KPH Kapuas Hulu on 26-30 August 2019 in Putussibau, Kapuas Hulu Regency, West Kalimantan. The assessment of the forest potential is carried out by comparing the results of the analysis of forest potential from imagery data and field verification (which is referred to as forest inventory). Participants were representatives from the KPHs of Kapuas Hulu Timur, Kapuas Hulu Utara, Kapuas Hulu Selatan and one intern from the University of Papua. In addition, resource persons from the Directorate of Inventory and Monitoring of Forest Resources of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry were invited.
As the result of the training, the participants are able to assess the forest potential in their working area and prepare a budget plan for undertaking a forest inventory.
