Hutan Harapan is the name of the first production forest area in Indonesia that is managed to restore its ecosystem or known as ecosystem restoration (RE). This production forest management initiative has inspired the birth of more ecosystem restoration areas in an effort to save the remaining forests. Hutan Harapan is a reference for RE studies in Indonesia.
The Forest Restoration Department is responsible for all aspects of planning, ratification and reporting of ecosystem restoration activities, including forest planning activities, flora and fauna inventory, forest security and fire control, and forest perpetuation. Forest Restoration also provides guidance to staff under it in their daily work in the areas of forest development and forest security and fire control. This department also handles the administration of forest development.
DEVELOPMENT OF COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP
The Hutan Harapan community partnership program is managed to ensure the stabilization of the area so that it can have a broad ecological, social and economic impact. The Department of Community Partnership and other departments in Hutan Harapan run the program with the spirit of “Restoration with the Community”.
