It is because Governor Lukas Enembe said, continued Head of the Department of Public Relations Jan Jap Ormuseray, he was well aware that Papua’s forests were one of the lungs of the world, so the Papuan Provincial Government decided that the forest area to be preserved was more than 80 percent.
“Recognizing that Papua’s forests must be preserved, Papua’s forests today are truly a concern of the whole world,” he added.
One of the indicators, said Jan Jap Ormuseray, is the 2021 GCFTF (Governor’s Climate and Forest Task Force) annual meeting which was attended by the Governor of Papua Lukas Enambe in Brazil. in this world.
“And, another indication is that by acclamation approximately 39 countries in the world have appointed Papua as the host of the GCFTF annual meeting which will be held next year,” he said.
According to Kadis Jan, this is one indicator to assess that the joint efforts of the Papuan Provincial Government together with indigenous peoples in Papua to maintain forests have so far been far better than other countries and other regions in Indonesia.
“And they also still have a lot to learn from us, because the relationship between the government, the relationship between ondoafi, tribal chiefs in Papua in relation to conservation efforts, maintaining local wisdom related to forest and environmental conservation is going very well,” said the man. who is also the general chairman of the Tanah Merah-anak Peranakan Tanah Merah (ATM-ATPM).
Because in Papua with traditional law, an Ondofolo, Ondoafi or Tribal Chief has customary territory, land and forest under his control so that customary law applies, how does he protect humans, forests and land.
“Well, that’s our advantage, because traditional law is still alive and well, so it becomes one of the tools on how to maintain and protect forests and land in Papua,” he concluded.
