The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) through the Center for Education and Training for Human Resources and the Forestry Training Centre (CFET) and FORCLIME conducted a training on climate change and REDD+ for forest ecosystem management officials (PEH) in Bogor. Following this training, participants will be able to develop mitigation and adaptation action plans for climate change and REDD+ at their respective workplace.
The training is part of a pilot for blended learning development, a combination of training methods through online (e-learning) and direct teaching (face-to-face). The online sessions, an equivalent of 16 hours, were held from 1-12 February and followed by 37 participants from various forestry agencies in the area. The offline teaching sessions, held from February 16 to 19 with an equivalent of 26 hours, were attended by 18 participants from several Forest Management Units (FMUs) such as FMU West Berau and FMU Kapuas Hulu, by the Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) in West Java as well as several national park authorities (Betung Kerihun - West Kalimantan, Lore Lindu - Central Sulawesi, Ujung Kulon - Banten, Gede Pangrango - West Java, Halimun Salak – West Java, Kepulauan Seribu - Jakarta). Participants who followed the offline sessions had been selected during online sessions. Only active and qualified participants during the online sessions were nominated to join the classroom sessions. The two topics presented during the face-to-face sessions include: (1) Monitoring, Reporting, Verification (MRV) in REDD+ and carbon accounting; and (2) Development of action plans. Both e-learning and face-to-face training sessions were facilitated by experienced trainers (widyaiswara) from CFET in Bogor.
