  • 4. Description [Abstrak]: Local Forest Management (LFM) is an important alternative strategy for conserving the for-est, and for allowing both forest dwellers and larger stakeholders to benefit from the forest.However, in many cases national policies do not favor LFM. This article critically reviews Indonesia‚Äôs national forest policies and indicates how they contradict the principles and practices of Local Forest Management. For this purpose, an excerpt from a research report on forest management by a local community in East Kalimantan is provided. This includes natural re-source tenure, land classification and utilization, forest product utilization and the negative impact of industrial tree plantations. A review of LFM policies, land and forestry laws and the prospect of forestry reform in the future is provided after a discussion of the local situation.This article argues that local people are able to manage the forest in a sustainable way based on their traditions. Accordingly, it is important to have a fair evaluation of customary laws, to avoid uniform application of forest development and to recognize the reality of land use and the socioeconomic conditions as criteria for forest land classification. The involvement of local people and NGOs should be clearly defined in the form of decrees or laws.
