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.

2019 08 27 RPHJP Kaltim suprianto

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.

Hospitation Programme on forest inventory and planning for Indonesian professionals conducted

2019 09 3 hospitation programme 2019

To familiarize with technical methods and procedures in Germany a hospitation programme for to Indonesian foresters was designed and implemented from August 19th to September 3rd 2019. During this time 2 representatives of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry’s Directorate of Forest Resources Inventory and Monitoring (IPSDH) and Center for Environment and Forestry Education and Training (PUSDIKLAT) visited the state forest enterprise of the German federal state of Hessen (HessenForst) participating in activities in the company’s central planning unit as well as within the Forest Management Units (FMU) Michelstadt and Gross Gerau. Besides that opportunities were given to visit the faculty of forestry at University of Goettingen and the regional council including superior forest authority in Kassel. Since the hospitation programme was developed and prepared within the framework of the Forest Expert Programme, implemented by German Forest Society (Deutscher Forstverein, also based in Goettingen), the guests were introduced to this association, too.

The visitors from Indonesia were familiarized with the structures of the HessenForst state forest enterprise. Subsequently, insights were provided into several methods for the inventory of forest stands (complete and sample survey) and the investigation of site conditions, in particular soil quality. This was followed by the presentation of the procedures for data evaluation and consolidation and their pictorial presentation, among other using a company-specific Geographic Information System (GIS). Beyond office discussions the practical data collection in the field, which causes a lot of efforts, as well as the relevance of these data for daily work of Forest Management Units was part of the programme. When visiting a FMU information on set-up, tasks and every-day-procedures of German forestry offices could be gathered.

Last not least a couple of cultural side events were also arranged during the stay in order to bring the German culture a little closer to the participants of the hospitation. Thus some attractions in the forest like nature parks and wildlife reserves but also sights in and around the cities of Goettingen and Kassel as well as the Odenwald landscape could be viewed.
