  5. 5. Managing the Rainforests in Kalimantan• The Ministry of Forestry(MOF) - MOF issues licences to timber companies and monitor their activities.• Community involvement - MOF involves local people such as local governments, native people and villagers.• Sustainable management - refers to the careful use of resources, such as forests to allow people to continue using the resources in future.
  6. 6. Four Main Policies of MOF • Afforestation and reforestation • Controlled logging • Conservation • Controlling forest fires
  7. 7. Afforestation and reforestation• Afforestation - planting trees on areas that were not covered withforests.• Reforestation - planting trees in formerly forested areas that havebeen cleared by logging.
  8. 8. Controlled logging- controlled logging involves careful management of forests that are being logged. (law enforcement & education) e.g. Selective cutting VS clear cutting
  9. 9. Conservation • - refers to the careful use of resources to protect forests from destruction. - e.g. setting aside as nature reserves.
