Land Tenure Assessment Tools Training in Kapuas Hulu

Training on land tenure

Representatives from NGOs, the customary board and thelocal and village governments participated in the “Land Tenure Assesment Tools Training” in Putussibau from 5 - 9 May 2014. This event was initiated by the Working Group Tenure (WGT) and supported by GIZ programmes, Forest Governance Programme and Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME). The aim of this training was to provide information of methodologies and tools for collecting preliminary information and conflict mapping. Thus, relevant stakeholders can develop and identify potential solutions to accomodate their needs.

There are five villages within the Model Forest Management Unit (FMU) in Kapuas Hulu, namely Pulau Manak, Padua, Setulang, Tanjung Lasa, and Sadap. These villages are sharing their experiences with regard to existing conflicts related to forest area and administration borders of the  village. The case studies encouraged the participants to understand how to use the land tenure assesment tools, such as RATA (Rapid And Tenure Assesment), AGATA (Analisis Gaya Bersengketa, analysis based on conflict types), conflict documentation software (HuMA-Win) and gender analysis (as part of social analysis). Additionally, the participants strengthened their understanding of the methodologies for land tenure analysis through field practice in Tanjung Lasa village.

As a follow up of the training, an assesment and a data collection in those villages will be undertaken in July. The activity will be carried out by the WGT and will be supported by the qualified participants as assessors.  Furthermore, the WGT team will present the assesment results to the policy makers in the district and on the national level in order to give a clear picture on tenurial issues in the Model FMU Kapuas Hulu.
