Increasing Law Enforcement Capacity, Urgent Duty

Conflict between humans and wildlife, illegal wildlife hunting activities and deforestation activities that lead to destruction of wildlife habitat, until now have not been handled properly and received maximum penalty by law enforcement stakeholders.

Illegal activities have also increased wildlife trading activities in black market network and demand for Sumatran tiger skin and body parts, elephant ivory, and other wildlife’s body parts.

Weak law enforcement capacity along with increasingly limited allocation of human resources and funding become the main barriers to tackle illegal wildlife hunting and trading.

Several other factors include the existence of laws which are no longer relevant to present conditions. These laws becoming barriers used by environmental and forestry actors to justify their illicit actions.

These weaknesses should be immediately revised to optimize law enforcement capacity in environment and forestry sectors to be able to play their roles accordingly and to receive support from other related institutions.

Sumatran Tiger Project supports pre-study of law enforcement capacity in forestry sector, as concrete form of efforts to strengthening law enforcement capacity within Ministry Environment and Forestry (KLHK) as imposed by regulations.

This activity was held for 2 days from 25-26 September 2018, at Antares Hotel Medan and fully organized by PIU Sumatran Tiger – Leuser with team of technical committees at Gunung Leuser National Park Office.

This activity was attended by law enforcement agencies, Provincial Forest Service, representatives of relevant UPT KLHK, representatives of academics and collaborative partners of UPT KSDAE-LHK in Leuser landscape. Darmawan Liswanto, is consultant who facilitated the pre-study of law enforcement capacity of forestry sector.
