Utilization of forest and forest area can be adjusted with its main function that is conservation, protection and production. In order to maintain the sustainability of the main function and condition of the forest, rehabilitation and reclamation of forest and land are also carried out. The research is empirical research or commonly called non-doctrinal legal research. This research was conducted in the territory of Papua Province, Indonesia, precisely in Districts of Jayapura, Keerom, Sarmi and Nabire. The results show that the government’s responsibility to improve the welfare of Papuan people from forest management has not been well realized and has not yet strengthened the fiscal capacity of government in Papua Province. Therefore, the government of Papua Province has regulated the management of customary forests by issuing and enacting the Special Regulation of Papua (Perdasus) No. 21 of 2008 on Sustainable Forest Management in Papua Province, and the policy of economic empowerment of communities in and around customary forests. Law enforcement of illegal logging practices is based not only on juridical approaches but also socio-political and socio-cultural approaches.
