The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (Indonesian: Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan) is the cabinet-level, government ministry in the Republic of Indonesia responsible for managing and conserving that nation's forests. The current Minister of Environment and Forestry is Siti Nurbaya Bakar.


Since late 2014, the Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Forestry was merged into Ministry of Environment and Forestry. However, Environment and Forestry management has been an official government concern since Presidential Decree No. 16 of 1972 established the Committee of Formulation and Work Plan to the Government in the Field of Environment following the 1972 World Environment Conference in Stockholm, Sweden.[1][2]
