Forestry Contribution to Indonesian Economic Growth Highest in the World after China

Jakarta, Indonesia, Nov 20, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - The contribution of the forestry sector in Indonesia improves the welfare of the rural population, increasing consumption in this segment by approximately 4%, and contributing to the economic growth in Indonesia of around 6.5%.

Several policies from The Ministry of Forestry create job opportunities by providing legal access to the rural population, such as the Community Plantation Forest (HTR), Social Forest (HKm) and Rural Forest (HD), thus providing rural communities with sustainable employment throughout the year without requiring the Community Nursery (KBR) or Forest and Land Rehabilitation (RHL) throughout the year, with an average state budget of Rp 2.6 trillion.

Likewise, the Industrial Plantation Forest (HTI) with 232 units covering 9,778,734 ha, where the average annual planted area is 500,000-600,000 ha, with year-round employment in rural areas in seedbed, land preparation, planting, nurturing, harvesting, processing and marketing. In addition, the Ministry of Forestry has provided funds of Rp. 2.5 Trillion for the activities of Community Plantation Forest, Social Forest (HKm), Rural Forest (HD), Community Forest (HR), and Industrial Plantation Forest (HTI) with a revolving loan fund through the Public Service Agency (BLU). Realization of this fund has increased the development of Community Planted Forest, which in 2011 reached Rp 30,007,545,490, having come in 2010 to Rp 5,119,140,000, for a cumulative Rp 35,126,685,490.

Legal access for Natural Tourism Permits, also granted by the Ministry of Forestry to rural communities through the Regulation of Ministry of Forestry P.48/Menhut-II/2010, allows the rural population not only to transport and sell souvenirs, but also contributes to Natural Tourism Business management.

In addition, the Ministry of Forestry has also helped rural communities through the delegation of Timber Legalizing to Village Heads for issuing Certificates of Origin of Timber. For Sengon timber, this requires only a Sales Note without a Certificate of Origin. The Ministry of Forestry has delegated authority to regional Regents to issue Investment Permits for rattan, sago, gum, seeds and honey as non-timber forest products, as regents are closer to rural communities.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
