With the purpose of improving the knowledge about technical, institutional and administrative issues related to the implementation of forest and land rehabilitation (Rehabilitasi Hutan dan Lahan-RHL), the District Plantation and Forestry Service of Kapuas Hulu together with GIZ-FORCLIME conducted a training for farmer groups from villages in Kapuas Hulu district from 27th to 29th of August, 2013 in Putussibau. 64 participants attended the training, representing the 16 forest farmer groups from the villages in Kapuas Hulu district, West Kalimantan.
After participating in the training, it is expected that local communities, particularly forest farmer groups, have gained more knowledge on the practical implementation of forest and land rehabilitation, including strengthened institutional organization of farmer groups and division of roles in the implementation of forest and land rehabilitation. Moreover, the training also aimed at strengthening community access to forest management.
Kapuas Hulu is one of the pilot districts of FORCLIME implementation activities on forest management and climate change. In addition, FORCLIME also engages in Malinau (North Kalimantan) and Berau district (East Kalimantan).
