Abstract

The provisions of the Forestry Law (Law No. 19 of 2004) which prohibits mining business activities in forest areas (both production forests and protected forests) create complicated problems, because the mining depositors already have permits and / or government approval as a remote mining authority before the Forestry Law was enacted. Meanwhile, there is a criminal threat for mining business actors who do not hold forest utilization permits. Overlap between these two sectors has the potential to cause conflicts of interest. On the one hand, the mining sector is a strategic business sector that is the mainstay of the country's revenue; on the other hand, the forestry sector also plays an important role in the national economy and environmental preservation. On that basis, efforts should be made to synchronize land use arrangements so that existing businesses in the mining sector can continue; and optimization of forest area functions and management is still achieved. Some efforts can be considered, including: Clarifying procedures that must be fulfilled by mining business actors to obtain a Forest Utilization Loan Permit (IPPKH); reviewing the allocation of forest areas to non-forest; and or using a zoning approach by utilizing remote sensing technology in the preparation of Spatial and Regional Plans (RTRW) as an effort to avoid overlapping land use.
