Diklat penulisan proposal

The Center of Forest Education and Training (CFET), in collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME, conducted a training on proposal writing for fundraising for forestry training institutions. The training took place in Bandung from 21-25 April 2014. The 30 participants are representatives of the Agency for Extension and Forest Human Resource Development (Badan Penyuluhan dan Pengembangan Sumberdaya Manusia Kehutanan - BP2SDM), which includes the CFET, Forestry Training Offices (Balai Diklat Kehutanan), the Centre of Planning and Development of Forest Human Resources (Pusrenbang SDMK) and the Forestry Extension Center (Pusat Penyuluhan Kehutanan). The training aimed to improve the management capacities of forestry training institutions, particularly with regard to raising funds to support the financial sustainability of the institutions.

Topics delivered during the training include: (1) Proposal development with a clear and structured logical framework, (2) Formulation of financial proposals relevant to the proposed logical framework, (3) Organization and institutional aspects (including internal human resources, monitoring and evaluation) that are required to implement the proposed programmes, (4) Identifying potential donors or funding sources, (5) Identifying marketing strategies to promote the proposals.

During the training, the participants developed five draft proposals and will receive further support by the trainers and the working team (coordinated through CFET) to finalise the proposals in order to eventually submit them to relevant potential donors.

Training on Mapping Conflicts for Lecturers at the CFET

Diklat Pemetaan konflik

The Centre of Forestry Education and Training (CFET) in collaboration with the Forestry Tenure Working Group (WG Tenure) and supported by GIZ FORCLIME conducted a training on “Conflict Mapping” in Bogor. Participants in the training were mainly lecturers from the CFET and the regional Forestry Training Centres (BDK Siantar, Pekanbaru, Bogor, Kadipaten, Samarinda, Makassar, Kupang).

The objective of the training was to provide knowledge, skills and mind-sets to stakeholders on conflict mapping, analysis of conflict resolution, and documentation of data. After the training participants are expected to use their newly acquired knowledge in teaching as well as direct resolution of tenure conflicts in the forestry sector.

The Head of CFET, Dr. Agus Justianto, opened the training accompanied by Dr. Iman Santoso, the Coordinating Board of the WG Tenure. In the opening speech, Dr. Agus Justianto mentioned the three pillars of forestry development in Indonesia: low carbon emission development, resources efficiency, and social inclusiveness.

As part of the training, a field trip enabled the participants to apply the theoretical knowledge obtained during the class room sessions. The exercise in the field was carried out at Kiarasari village in Sukajaya sub-district in Bogor. The village is located in the surrounding area of the Gunung Halimun Salak National Park. Participants used analytical tools on land tenure conflict mapping for collecting data and information from the community in the Cibuluh and Gunung Leutik villages, and the management of the national park.

Working closely with CFET and supported by FORCLIME, the WG Tenure has developed a curriculum syllabus on “Conflict Mapping”, which has already been formalized through the Head of CFET’s decree No. 35/Dik.2/2014. Four analytical approaches for assessing land tenure have been adopted in the curriculum syllabus, namely Rapid Land Tenure Assessment (RaTA), Disputants Style Analysis (AGATA), gender analysis in the management of forest resources, and documentation of data conflicts (HUMA -win).

Participation in IndoGreen Forestry Expo 2014

Indogreen 2014

FORCLIME, in collaboration with Pushumas, the public relations department of the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry, participated in the 6th IndoGreen Forestry EXPO from 11 – 14 of April 2014. The expo, which took place in the Jakarta Convention Centre, was organised under the theme “Low Carbon Economic Forestry Development” and was opened by the Forestry Minister on April 11th. It is estimated that about 10,000 visitors - among them high school pupils, university students, government officials and retirees - came to the expo to inform themselves about the activities conducted by the various exhibitors which came mainly from forestry government institutions, private companies, and other forest related organisations, both national and international.

One of the special features of the FORCLIME booth was its interactive touch screen which, based on interactive maps, provided information on FORCLIME‘s field work in Kalimantan (Malinau, Berau and Kapuas Hulu districts). This touch screen attracted many visitors and was a good starting point for lively interaction and discussions with FORCLIME staff.

In addition to the booths, talk shows were held inside the expo hall every day. Topics included climate change, forestry, sustainable mining, forestry products, and green products. The FORCLIME talk show was moderated by Mohamad Rayan and Klothilde Sikun with title “Forests and Climate Change”. The interested audience asked many questions on various topics, such as the programme’s activities, its motive and contribution to protecting the remaining forests in Indonesian, but also more general questions on REDD+, climate change, sustainable forest management, illegal logging, biodiversity, economic development and forests, or international climate change conventions.
