The Independent Forest Monitoring Network (JPIK) is an independent network established on September 23, 2010 by 29 NGOs from Aceh to Papua. Since 2014, JPIK regularly publishes the newsletter every 6 months. This newsletter is one of the forums to provide information about JPIK’s work and current conditions related to forestry conditions in Indonesia, especially regarding the Timber Legality Verification System.

In early October, JPIK will re-publish the 5th Newsletter. To enrich the writing color and cultivate love for writing, we invite environmentalists to become contributors in the 5th JPIK Newsletter to be published in October 2015.
