4. Background
Desa Catur is located in West Kintamani, approximately 69 Km from Denpasar via Sangeh - Pelaga - Catur or approximately 80 Km via Payangan - Kintamani - Catur (two (2) hours from Denpasar). It is located 1140m above sea level, and situated between Desa Tambakan (Buleleng Regency), Belok Sidan (Badung Regency) and the Bedugul Forest (Tabanan Regency).
Geographically, this village is located in the cross-point of four regencies located in the mountains of Central Bali, and is the location of the upper reaches of the river that flows through the four regencies in Bali, such as the Ayung River, that flows through the Regencies of Gianyar, Badung and Denpasar; and the Daya River that flows through the Buleleng Regency. In other words, this area is the green belt, the water absorption area that must be preserved. It should also be noted that this mountain range is Bali's last fort of natural (forest) diversity.
The presence of society's awareness on the importance of preserving the forest and river basin is manifested in the planting of fifty thousand (50.000) trees in the Segehe Adat Forest still within the Desa Pakraman Catur area. This forest is approximately 67Ha wide, with a decreasing density due to illegal felling of trees.
5. Purpose
a. Preservation of green belts in the Central Bali mountain river basin.
b. The recovery of the Segehe Adat forest conditions in the Central Bali mountain range
c. Sense of ownership and responsibility of all parties with respect to the conditions of the forests in Bali.
