Main Article Content

Respati Kurniawan


As stated in Article 1 letter b of Law Number 41 Year 1999 concerning
Forestry Principles, forest is an integrated ecosystem in the form of a stretch
of land containing biological natural resources dominated by trees in their
natural environment, which cannot be separated from one another. The
success of development in the forestry sector is not only determined by
capable and skilled officials. However, it must also be supported by
community participation. The need for community participation in forest
protection is based on the premise that this participation can provide
information to the Government and remind the public's willingness to accept
decisions and return forests in Indonesia to the lungs of the world.
