Policy Spatial Plan Province (RTRWP) East Kalimantan

East Kalimantan Province Government should not have to "conversion" (averting enable) 1.3 million ha of forest areas for other purposes set out in the Spatial Plan Province (RTRWP) which is still be negotiated to the central government. In argument, Regional and Central Government have no reason to convert the millions of forest area. Conversion policy is contrary to the principles of environmental and peyelamatan amid increasing forest ecological disasters such as floods 3 times a year, landslides and increased district disaster-prone city in East Kalimantan.
Cultural Area Non-Forestry (KBNK) in East Kalimantan has reached 5.1 million ha (26.33%) of forest area in East Kalimantan (RTRWP, 1999) and if there is the addition of 1.3 million ha, the increase is for 7.03 % for KBNK. While the amount of protected forest area increased only about 1.2% from 4.6 million ha and Cultural Area Forestry (KBK) decreased approximately 10.32% of the 9.7 jt ha. East Kutai regency, West Kutai and Kutai Kartanegara are two districts that have the highest area proposed for conversion of forest areas with a total percentage ranging from 5% - 6%. Meanwhile, West Kutai district included in the category of landslide disaster-prone districts dilima; Peace, Long APARI, PAHANGAI Long, Long Bagun and Long Iram. Only Tarakan City are experiencing a reduction of 0.10% KBNK.
Spatial plan which was built by the government district / city and province were still relativized interests and rescue Environment and forests do not have the spirit of conservation and welfare of the people of East Kalimantan. The process of consultation and socialization to the community as stipulated in the Act No.26 Year 2007 About Spatial also has not performed maximally, so that not all the people of East Kalimantan to know and schools of the spatial changes that will potentially vulnerable in conflicts create horizontal and vertical community level.
Spatial Planning Province (RTRWP) is the product of policy concerning the public livelihood Kaltim, if the policy has the potential to cause high levels of escalation of conflict management of people's livelihood (SDA) and even to cause casualties, the government should thwart 'conversion' 1, 3 million ha of forest area. Enough already faced problems Kaltim community management of conflict of livelihood for decades occurred in East Kalimantan and no longer added to the formulation of spatial planning that does not side with the interests of the people of East Kalimantan.
