konsultasi publik standar kompetensi

With the aim to support the development of professional local forestry officials, the Center for Planning and Development of Forest Human Resources (Pusrenbang SDMK) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME developed a competency standard for local forestry government employees. The standard is expected to be used as guidance for assigning forestry officials, which not only considers the administrative aspects of rank and class, but also forestry technical competence aspects.

To collect inputs from stakeholders on the draft competency standard, public consultations were conducted on 21 November and 11 December 2014. The latter event was attended by 50 participants from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Provincial Forestry Services, District Forestry Services, academia, and the Professional Certification Institute.

Some important issues that arose during the public consultations include: (1) The developed standard only covers the technical aspects of forestry as managerial competences are covered by the competency standards prepared by the Minister for Administrative Reform or the National Personnel Agency/BKN; (2) The preparation of regional competency standards has to comply with Law No. 23 of 2014 on Local Government which transfers the management of forestry affairs to the provincial government; (3) It is necessary to consider social aspects and availability of human resources in the region in implementing the competence standards; (4) It is necessary to establish more detailed rules regarding the placement process of officials and the involvement of relevant stakeholders in this process.
