The East Kalimantan Province revised its forestry planning 2011-2030

The revised version of the Province Forestry Planning has been issued through the Governor’s regulation No. 55/2018 on the revision of the attachment of the Governor’s regulation No. 19/2012 on the Province Forest Planning 2011-2030. The revision is undertaken to adjust to current changes, including shifting authorities within the forestry sector due to Law 23/2014; the establishment of the North Kalimantan province, which reduces the size of East Kalimantan; and the designation of the spatial planning of East Kalimantan province 2016-2036. The process of the forestry planning revision is led by the Provincial Forestry Service and supported by its partners, such as FORCLIME (GIZ) and Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI).

2019 02 18 coaching business dev KPH Kaltara ms

With the intention of strengthening capacity of forest management units (KPH) in North Kalimantan province on preparing business development plans, FORCLIME together with Swarna Nusantara Indonesia organized a coaching session. The coaching session, which is part of a training series (basic, coaching, advanced) aimed to prepare participants to take the advanced training prior to the selection process. Representatives from five KPHs in North Kalimantan and local communities joined the two-day training on 18-19 February 2019 in Nunukan district, North Kalimantan. The training provides the tools for a successful production, processing and marketing of selected commodities that promote sustainable forest management and improve the welfare of local communities.

The Head of KPH Nunukan, Mr Bastiang, said that the coaching session is useful to accomplish our tasks and assignments. Furthermore, he said “we believe the application from the training will lead us to become an independent KPH”.

As part of the training, participants visited a community forest site, HKM Floresta, to see a community forest for which a business plan had already been developed. Mr Abdul Erwansyah - a forestry extension worker and HKM Floresta representative – announced that after participating in the previous training series Floresta realized the big opportunity to market their products. "This training has opened our minds in regards of producing good quality. The training provides a chance to share knowledge that generated ideas to develop a marketing strategy”, he said.
