2021 12 10 Pojka Perhutanan Sosial Papua Barat mb 1

The West Papua Working Group for the Acceleration of Social Forestry (Pokja PPS) is a forum of the West Papua Provincial Government and is coordinated under the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service. The Pokja comprises four work units, specifically: Capacity Development; Preparation of Work Areas; Post-Permit Business Facilities; and Management of Pesona Mart. Through the Pokja PPS, Social Forestry programmes in West Papua Province can be organized and implemented from the provincial level to the site level. Pokja PPS members represent various agencies, including the Forestry Service, Environment and Land Service, Industry and Cooperatives Service and the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency, as well as various technical units of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (agencies of the Social Forestry and Environmental Partnership for Maluku Papua Region and the Manokwari Region XVII Forest Area Consolidation), the Faculty of Forestry at Papua University and other related institutions. Moreover, there are two new additional members, one of which is FORCLIME, which have now joined the secretariat of the PPS Pokja. This new membership is in the process of being revised through the issuance of Governor’s Decree Number 522/15/VII/2021 by the Legal Bureau of the Regional Secretary of West Papua Province.

In an effort to evaluate performance during the course of 2021, the West Papua Pokja PPS held a coordination meeting on 10 December 2021 in the meeting room of the Forestry Service in Manokwari. The meeting was opened by the Head of the West Papua Province Forestry Service, Ir. Hendrik Runaweri, MM, who also serves as the Chair of the Pokja PPS West Papua, and discussed the work programme plan for 2022.

The follow-up to this meeting encompassed the formulation of a work programme for each work unit, the setting of times and dates for coordination meetings and the creation of a communication channel group in order to facilitate coordination.
