The implementation of The Green Growth Compact (GGC) movement in East Kalimantan is in synergy with the Social Forestry (SF) Program, which is being rolled out and become a government priority program. The following paper aims to provide an overview of how the strengthening of local government roles and policies accelerates SF’s development and identifies potential barriers and proposed policies towards accelerated growth. Data collection through document studies, interviews, and observations using content analysis. The research results show that SF policies and regulations have not been entirely directed to simplify the operational level’s licensing process. An effort to accelerate SF’s development is to intensify communication and coordination between the Ministry of Environment and Forestry with the local government and communications with the community and with its counselors in the field. There are some policy interventions identified in supporting the acceleration of social forestry. While the proposed policies to overcome barriers that will keep SF’s success are investment policies of SF activities, operational procedures, and enabling and policy-legislation.
