FORCLIME, in cooperation with other GIZ programme - Low Emissions Oil Palm Development (LEOPALD) – and the Conflict Resolution Unit of the Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (CRU-IBCSD), conducted a first meet-up for participants of an on-the-job mediation training on 20-21 February in Tanjung Redeb, Berau, East Kalimantan. The workshop was attended by 28 participants, representing agencies working on conflict in the land sector of Berau’s district government and local NGOs.
The on-the-job mediation training aims to improve hands-on mediation skills of local government and civil society practitioners regarding multi-stakeholder natural resource conflicts. The practitioners are trained to mediate real conflicts in their district under the guidance of the experienced mediators. The objective of the meet-up was to create mediation teams, introduce the first steps of a conflict assessment and search for conflicts suitable for mediation within their district.
