With the goal of preparing a Long-Term Forest Management Plan (RPHJP) document for the Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) of Sorong Selatan, the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service held an online meeting on 4 November 2022 that was opened by the Head of KPHP Sorong Selatan, Reynold Kesaulija, S.Hut., M.Si., and attended by FORCLIME, as one of the development partners operating in West Papua Province.
During the meeting, the Head of KPHP Sorong Selatan asked for support for the implementation of forest use planning (tata hutan), which covers various activities, including the subdivision of the area into blocks and plots, the results of which will assist in the preparation of the RPHJP document. In terms of forest governance activities, FORCLIME has pledged its support for the consultation process (coaching clinic). However, this process will be implemented by the South Sorong KPHP in coordination with the Manokwari Forest Area Consolidation Center (BPKH).
In addition, a coaching clinic will be held in order to prepare an RPHJP for all KPHs operating in West Papua Province and is planned for the end of November or early December 2022. During this event, the bio-geophysical and sociocultural data of KPHP Sorong Selatan, which was collected in conjunction with FORCLIME, will be addressed during the discussions.
