Cooperation - Republic of Indonesia and Federal Republic of Germany

With the aim to establish a mutual understanding on Participatory Land Use Planning (PLUP), the District Forest Service of Malinau and FORCLIME financial cooperation (FC) conducted a training on PLUP in Pujungan sub-District of Malinau District in September 2015. The training was followed by simultaneous facilitation of PLUP preparation in 15 villages in Malinau. The facilitation was carried out by trained village facilitators and field guides, as well as technical personnel of FORCLIME FC.

The facilitation process was organized in several steps. First, the dissemination of information about PLUP in 15 villages, second a review of potential villages that had been identified previously. Next, the establishment of a PLUP team at each village with the task to take coordinate points and assist in technical issues related to PLUP implementation.

According to Oeban Hadjo, a FORCLIME FC technical expert, "PLUP will assist communities to be more effective in formulating land-based development programs at the village level".

As a result of the PLUP facilitation a “Village Priority Programme Plan on Village Land Use” has been drafted that will be used for forest management activities in the villages (long-term investments).
