Supporting the development of management plans for the KPH Model Malinau, North Kalimantan

2019 05 23 Developing RPHJP Unit II KPH Malinau3 resized

The Malinau Forest Management Unit Model (KPH Model Malinau) in collaboration with FORCLIME conducted a meeting about the development process of the long-term management plan (RPHJP) on 23 May 2019 in Malinau, North Kalimantan. FORCLIME supports the KPH model Malinau to improve the process of establishing RPHJP. The FMU elaborates the actions to be taken in the future, keeping in mind the corresponding strategies to implement biodiversity conservation, forest management and climate change activities (REDD+), community based forest management, and the integration of SDGs.

To support forestry operations in Forest Management Units (FMU), the RPHJP is of key importance. The RPHJP is a written document that describes all the relevant external and internal elements (SWOT analysis) involved in starting sustainable forest management.

The principal of the RPHJP team, Head of Planning Section, Mr Apriansyah stated that, “There are five units of RPHJP which the KPH Model Malinau is obligated to plan for within the forest areas of Malinau. In 2017, the first RPHJP signed by Ministry of Environment and Forestry was for the RPHJP Unit X Malinau. Starting in May to October 2019, the FMU is making adequate preparation for the long-term management plan, RPHJP Unit II, Malinau Utara".

Preparing a market platform for social forestry related activities in North Kalimantan

2019 05 21 Market and Analysis Development resized

FORCLIME with project partners, that is Malinau Forest Management Unit (FMU), forestry extension workers, and FORCLIME–FC conducted a meeting on market development related to the Social Forestry Business Groups (KUPS) in North Kalimantan on 22 May 2019 in Malinau. This meeting aimed to introduce a concept of how to gain access to the market and implement a sustainable market development. Daniel Maertz, Development Advisor, facilitated this meeting with a presentation and discussion.

Social Forestry (HUTSOS) has given local community access to manage forest land, including access to non-timber forest products (NTFP) and environmental services. HUTSOS has also established community business groups (KUPS). In North Kalimantan, local communities i.e. KUPS have been working together with forestry extension workers and NGOs since proposing the HUTSOS to the MoEF. Extension workers and farmers are the main players in the community business and market development. However, a lack of capacities, remains influential in every aspect of the market development. Therefore, GIZ FORCLIME will develop a market development model related to Social Forestry in North Kalimantan in cooperation with local communities.

Daniel Maertz stated that “the model will emphasize the capacity development of the potential KUPS and extension workers, including FMU staff. Each KPH in cooperation with farmer groups will determine 1 to 2 KUPS schemes through mutual consensus. The concepts of Forestry partnership, community forestry (HKM), or village forest will form part of the market analysis, local knowledge, cultural values and needs will play a major role in the development of the analysis.”
