Assistance after obtaining a Social Forestry (SF) permit plays a major role in supporting the success of community businesses. "Currently, there have been so many efforts from civil institutions to assist the community to obtain SF permits, but the success of the community (conducting social forestry business) is apparently largely determined by the assistance carried out after obtaining the permit," said Edi Purwanto, Director of Tropenbos Indonesia in the webinar series #19 "Managing the Remaining Forests" held on Saturday, June 5, 2021 which raised the topic "Learning from Forest Entrepreneurs". Present as resource persons in this webinar are those who have played a significant role in strengthening institutions and market access of forest-based community businesses.
Managing the remaining forest also means managing biodiversity including wildlife, especially the types that are now increasingly rare or even endangered, such as elephants, tigers and rhinos. According to Wiratno, Director General of Conservation of Natural Resources and Ecosystem (KSDAE), Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), various types of protected mammals are also found outside conservation areas, such as in production forest, in oil palm plantation, in rubber plantation, in industrial plantation forest (HTI), and so on. "We are challenged beyond the boundaries of protected areas," he said in the 17th Tropenbos Indonesia webinar series "Managing the Remaining Forests" entitled "Protecting the Archipelago's Animals" which took place on Saturday, 31 April 2021.
