KPHP Sorong Selatan and FORCLIME coordinate on 2023 activity plan

The Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) of Sorong Selatan held a recent coordination meeting with FORCLIME in an effort to develop an activity plan that will be jointly implemented during 2023. The meeting was chaired by the Head of the KPHP Sorong Selatan, Mr Reynold Kesaulija, S.Hut., M.Sc., and was held on 21 January 2023 in Sorong, Southwest Papua Province. The meeting discussed work planning, including the preparation of the Long-Term Forest Management Plan (RPHJP) and activities relating to the social forestry programme.

In order to complete preparations for a new RPHJP document, a Forest Arrangement Team is set to be formed that will implement the block and plot division process in February 2023.

In terms of Social Forestry, various activities are set to be jointly implemented in 2023, including the following:

  • Preparation of a Social Forestry Management Plan (RKPS) for Kampung Haha, which has obtained a permit for the Village Forest Scheme. This activity will be carried out after the RPHJP document has been approved.
  • Issuance of processing production permits (BPOM) for non-timber forest products in FORCLIME-assisted villages, specifically Kampung Haha and Kampung Wendi. This licensing process will be implemented in May or June 2023 after the construction of a resort in Kampung Haha has been completed. This location will then become a production house for non-timber forest products.
  • Completion of class-assessment processes for forest farmer groups (KTH). In the wake of recent mentoring, the KTH in FORCLIME-supported villages have experienced grade increases based on the various KTH Assessment Indicators set by the Human Resources Counseling and Development Agency (BP2SDM) at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The KTH assessment process will be undertaken around June - July 2023.
