The article describes the process of institutionalizing government-donor cooperation in developing and implementing an integrated national forest program and to enhance inter-agency cooperation. Three bodies have been established to achieve these targets: the Inter-Departmental Committee on Forest (IDCF), the Working Group for Coordinating the Implementation of the National Forest Program (NFP) and the Donor Forum on Forestry. The author raises some critical points about the effectiveness of those bodies and discusses several negative and several positive current policy achievements and developments in the field. The negative developments include: the continued illegal logging and deforestation; the debt restructuring process of the largest wood companies which does not sufficiently address sustainable forest management principles; the practice of several districts under the decentralization program to allocate concessions in an unsustainable manner and the lack/ absence of the prosecution of offenders. On the positive side, the author mentions the Ministry of Forestry's progress in making public the results of forest inventory and mapping (but without addressing the land tenure issues); the establishment of a Directorate of Forest and Estate Crops Fire Control; the recent moratorium on the cutting of ramin species and a public statement of the President against illegal logging. In addition, eco-labeling/certification schemes deserve special attention because they address the linkages between illegal logging and trade. Finally, the article proposes several priority measures which need to be undertaken: a high level joint political statement of the main decision-makers in the country (the President, Vice-President, DRP and MPR); rigorous implementation of the rule of law; promoting further the role of the IDCF as the main coordinating instrument for the NFP and continued policy dialogue.
