Abstract

Kutai Timur Regency has 3 KPHs (Kesatuan Pengelolaan Hutan or Forest Management Unit = FMU), namely KPH Bengalon, KPH Kelinjau, and KPH Manubar. Many studies and considerations within Kutai Timur’s forest, mainly of the factors of accessibility extent, KPH Bengalon had been recommended as a model (pilot project) of KPH. This research aims to study some aspects supporting the achievement of the Production Forest Authority Unit’s development. A case study was conducted on KPHP (Kesatuan Pengelolaan Hutan Produksi or Production Forest Management Unit) Bengalon in Kutai Timur Regency. This research was conducted in an area that had been planned to be a KPH in Kutai Timur Regency, that is KPHP Bengalon that includes nine districts, they are Bengalon, Karangan, Kongbeng, Muara Wahau, Rantau Pulung, Batu Ampar, Telen, Muara Bengkal, and Long Mesangat. This research combines documentation-study methodologies from various sources of secondary data and direct collection method of primary information from the field through interview technique; structured interview and unstructured interview (through questioner). Field observation was taken within the research location to obtain validation of secondary data. The result shows that four aspects supported the formulation of independent KPHP Bengalon in the Kutai Timur Regency, including 1. The certainty of area status, 2. Natural Resources Potential, 3. KPHP Financing and 4. Society Participation. All of those aspects are essential factors in the realization of KPHP Bengalon. This research suggests that it is needed to: (1) inventory natural resources in the protection-forest area of KPHP Bengalon, (2) determine potential natural resources that can be commercialized as a financing source for KPHP Bengalon; and (3) maximally involve society participation in the management of KPHP Bengalon.
