His party noted, based on data from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry of the Republic of Indonesia, the number of IPPKH issued increases every year, especially for additional and non-mining activities. Where in 2018 there were 49,235.50, 66,311.87 in 2019, 81,224.47 and 104,401.71 in 2021.

“The purpose and objective of this study is to obtain an explanation of the flow of the IPPKH/P2KH process from issuance to supervision of IPPKH/P2KH from the licensor, as well as the responsibilities of the P2KH holder’s obligations,” said Hery Susanto as Member of the Indonesian Ombudsman.

Hery explained that based on the results of the study, the findings of the Indonesian Ombudsman regarding IPPKH consisted of aspects of governance and supervision. In the aspect of governance, the Indonesian Ombudsman found at least 5 potential maladministration, namely; 1) protracted delay in IPPKH, 2) non-uniform requirements for requesting recommendations from regional governors regarding IPPKH, 3) lack of accessibility of information on IPPKH application processes and not optimal use of the Online Single Submission (OSS) IPPKH/P2KH system, 4) lack of dissemination of Thematic Geospatial information (IGT) Forestry related to IPPKH maps in the One Map Policy (KSO) and real-time information on IPPKH quotas and 5) incomplete socialization regarding changes to policies and technical procedures for new policies.

Meanwhile, in the aspect of supervision, the Ombudsman of the Republic of Indonesia found that there were inadequate budget allocations and potential results of non-independent supervision, limited human resources (HR) of supervisory officers, thus prolonging the area study procedure, and obstacles in implementing obligations, especially the rehabilitation of watersheds (DAS). .

“This happened because of several obstacles, namely the provision of rehabilitated land, the assessment period which was judged to be too short and the duties and authority of BPDASHL (Watershed Management Center and Protected Forest) were not optimal in monitoring,” said Hery.
