Central Kalimantan Province has set aside 10, 294, 853, 52 ha of forest regions or 64 % from totalizeing regional wide, it comprised 1, 848, 485.6 ha of conservation forest to parks and reserves; 766, 392.06 ha of protection forest to safeguard critical watersheds; 8, 038, 792.02 ha of production forest to economics functions, and 5, 003.8 ha of research and education forest. Sustainable forest management has been conducted on the all of the forest regions with different patterns of management according to their function. Conservation forests are used for the environment, fauna and flora conservation. Protection Forests are used for the soil and water stock protection. Production forests are used to produce forest product (wood and non wood) using a specific silvicultural system. Managing of forest regions in the Central Kalimantan Province is like in Indonesia as a whole, because Central Kalimantans forest is part of Indonesias forest. Forest regions must be determinated and specified by regulation of Indonesian Government, forestry minister and so on. Stand forest must be managed with a great concern on environment and applied the principles of sustainable forest management. Somehow, the sustainable forest management in Indonesia will depend on the commitment and cooperation in the stakeholders and support of local communities, because there are the large number of peoples living surrounding or within forest regions, despitefully, challenges in the sustainable forest management have to can be overcome.
