The present Law also amends new articles of the Village Law of 1924, the Law on Natural Disasters 1959, and the Tourism Incentives Act of 1982. The formation of the technical teams is re-defined. The in-forest pastures and grazelands are re-defined by a committee set up by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry and cannot be used for any other purposes unless their allocation purposes are modified. The governors of the provinces where pastures are located could modify allocation purposes if those areas must be set apart for; 1. oil exploration, 2. tourism investments, 3. essential for public investments, 4. soil preservation, gene resources protection , creation of national parks and preservation forests, protection of natural, historic and cultural assets, flood controlling, etc. 5. national security, 6. new settlement areas in natural disaster areas.
