TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Environment and Forestry Ministry will strengthen the Integrated Forest Management (KPH) by affirming the action plans for forest management areas.
Bambang Hendroyono, the Environment and Forestry Ministry's secretary-general, said that there are five steps that will be taken in the action plans: forest governance, forest management planning for the next 10 years, forest and land utilization, rehabilitation and reclamation, and protection and conservation.
Bambang said that the action plan is a follow-up to the National Mid Term Development Plan (RPJMN) that focuses on forest management.
Bambang continued that the five steps can be carried out by rebuilding KPH institutions, human resources, facility and infrastructure and enforcing the government's role in accordance with Law no. 23/2014 on Local Governments.
According to Bambang, successfull improvement of KPH's management system could potentially increase regional income.
