This report constitutes an empirically-based technical confirmation from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) which looks at the greatest sources of deforestation in Papua and West Papua provinces in State Forest Release (PKH) areas.

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry needs to re-emphasize that almost none of the deforestation in PKH areas in Papua and West Papua came from PKH Decrees issued by the Head of BKPM (Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board) and Minister of the Environment and Forestry Siti Nurbaya during President Joko Widodo's administration.

This report discusses levels of deforestation with regard to natural forest within the total area in the two provinces included in PKH Decrees, as issued by the Head of BPKM (Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board) and Minister Siti Nurbaya in the 2015-2019 period through 17 PKH Decrees covering 269,132 hectares.
