Forests as development capital have real benefits for life, both ecological, socio-cultural and economic benefits, balanced and dynamic. For that, the forest must be managed and managed, protected and utilized sustainably for the welfare of society, both present, and future generations. The problem, in the year 2013, recorded the total extent of forest area damage of 1,536,653.99 ha or about 36.74% of the total forest area of Riau Province. This condition is caused by unclear borders of forest area in the field because it has been lost and damaged, weak supervision and law enforcement. On the other hand, the ability of forest and critical land rehabilitation tends to decrease, since the forests and critical lands that will be rehabilitated have been controlled by irresponsible parties. In 2009, forest rehabilitation and critical land covering 275.28 thousand hectares fell to 95 thousand hectares by 20. This paper looks from the aspects of forest governance, using the perspective of actors, structural, and empirical dimensions. It can be concluded that the effort of subscribing forest crime cases and improvement of forest governance that has been done by the government is still not showing optimum result based on indications such as smoke haze, no significant degradation and deforestation rate, law enforcement process which still lack the ability to give deterrent effect to the perpetrator especially mastermind of illegal logging perpetrator.
