Human Capacity Development
What we do
FORCLIME provides assistance on human resource capacity development at the national and sub-national levels in order to support sustainable forest management which contributes to the benefit and welfare of communities as well the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the forestry sector in Indonesia. FORCLIME’s assistance focuses on (1) Developing policies with regard to human resource capacity development; (2) Strengthening the management capacity of training and educational institutions (particularly the Center of Forest Education and Training in Bogor); and (3) Development of trainings related to Forest Management Units (FMU) and climate change mitigation in the forestry sector.
FORCLIME’s assistance is in line with the Government of Indonesia’s policy to improve human resource capacities in the forestry sector in order to be able to face globalization challenges in the ASEAN Economic Community by 2015. This is also in line with the vision of the Center of Forest Education and Training to become the "center of excellence" in the development of forestry trainings at ASEAN level.
Future forest education and training programs developed and supported by FORCLIME use the approach of Competence Based Training (CBT) in accordance with the Indonesian National Qualifications Framework (Kerangka Kualifikasi Nasional Indonesia - KKNI) and as stipulated in the Presidential decree No. 8 in 2012 and the Indonesian National Occupational Competency Standards (Standar Kompetensi Kerja Nasional Indonesia - SKKNI) for the forestry sector. In the CBT approach, education and training programs focus on providing competencies (skills) in accordance with the competence standards for each respective position.
What we want to achieve
In the strategic area of Human Capacity Development FORCLIME aims to achieve the following objective: Forestry education and training institutions provide applicable and needs-oriented education and trainings which support the achievement of strategic forestry sector targets, in particular the development of FMUs and climate change mitigation in the forestry sector.Indicators for measuring the achievements by 2016 are:
- A development strategy for forestry education and training institutions (forestry faculty, Center for Forestry Education and Training (CFET), Regional Forestry Education and Training Center (RFETC), Forestry Vocational High School), which fulfills the needs of the strategic forestry sector objectives particularly FMU development and climate change mitigation, is completed.
- Management capacities of training institutions are strengthened.
- Availability of senior lecturers for the CFET as well as three training modules relevant for FMU management and climate change mitigation in the forestry sector.
- Availability of a RFECT trainer in Samarinda as well as two packages of teaching materials with integrated field experiences and practical examples that offer certified training in the field of FMU and climate change mitigation in the forestry sector for FMU staff and other relevant stakeholders (staff offices, communities, private sector).
How we work
FORCLIME advisors, supported by consultants, will facilitate the process for strengthening the management capacities of education and training institutions (especially the CFET in Bogor) and also facilitate the process of a so called "elevator system". In the elevator system, a "top-down" process is applied to strengthen the role of the Center of Forest Education and Training (CFET) in developing training systems, educating professional lecturers (widya iswara), and providing technical support for education and training institutions in the regions. A "bottom up" process is applied through decentralized education and training implementation in the regions. Lessons learnt from the regions will be used for the improvement of teaching materials and policies at the central level. In this bottom-up process, other stakeholders are also encouraged to participate and provide inputs to improve policies and teaching materials developed by the CFET in Bogor.
