The management of the Production Forest Management Unit (FMUP) Model Berau Barat conducted a coordination meeting with its partners on 14 April 2016 in Tanjung Redeb, Berau, East Kalimantan. The objective of the meeting was to obtain information on activities implemented by both FMUP Berau Barat and its partners, and to synergize the activities of partners with the management plan of FMUP Berau Barat, including opportunities for cooperation within the 2016 work plan. Besides FORCLIME, other partners of FMUP Berau Barat include local NGOs (the Wallacea Integrated Operations, Bestari, Menapak, Payau-payau, Kanopi), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and the REDD+ Working Group of Berau District. This meeting was held by FMUP Berau Barat in cooperation with GIZ FORCLIME.
During his speech, the Head of FMUP Berau Barat, Armilan Saidi S.Hut, MP., recalled the vision and mission of FMUP Berau Barat to optimize potentials for environmental services and non-timber forest products, such as wild honey, herbal tea (tea mangar) and swallow’s nests collection. These non-timber forest products can benefit both FMUP Berau Barat itself and the communities in its surrounding.
FORCLIME’s supports to FMUP Berau Barat include enhancement of human resources and institutional capacities, development of a business plan, anticipation of early warning systems and prevention of forest and land fires, land tenure conflict resolution, and preparation for forest reference emission levels (FREL).
In the future, this meeting will be held periodically in order to enable better coordination and synergies between FMUP Berau Barat and its partners, and to achieve the vision and mission of FMUP Berau Barat as an independent institution for sustainable forest management.
