The Ministry of Environment and Forestry integrates gender-sensitive approaches into its training management cycles
With the purpose of accelerating the implementation of gender mainstreaming in the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), the Gender Mainstreaming Working Group (Pokja PUG) collaborates with the Environmental and Forestry Education and Training Center (BD LHK) Makassar and GIZ. A training on Gender Mainstreaming for lecturers (Widyawaiswara) on October 18-19 in Makassar, South Sulawesi was organized. Objective of the event was to increase the lecturers’ knowledge related to gender mainstreaming, therefore, they can integrate gender-sensitive approaches into the Training Management Cycle. 29 lecturers attended the training, representing the Bogor Environmental and Forestry Human Resources Training Center and BD LHK regions (Bogor, Kupang, Makassar, Samarinda).
During the training the participants conducted group discussions to prepare a curriculum for eLearning on gender mainstreaming, identifying strategies for integrating gender into the training management cycle and identifying indicators of gender responsive training institutions. The results will be followed up and improved through a meeting with the Human Resources Planning and Development Agency (BP2SDM) and the MoEF Training Center in November.

Exploring options of eco-tourism for Karangan Bunut village, West Kalimantan
On a study trip to Kuching in neighbouring Sarawak/Malaysia organized by the West Kalimantan FORCLIME team from October 7 to 11, 2018, valuable insights into the organization and management of ecotourism should be gathered there. Participants were representatives of the village of Karangan Bunut, who engage in tourism by inviting visitors to visit and offer eco lodge and longhouse accommodation. They were accompanied by members of the FORCLIME team, who have been supporting the development of local tourism for some time.
In Kuching, special attention has been paid to the possibilities of cooperation between public institutions and the private sector in order to improve the tourist offer, which focuses mainly on outdoor activities and the Kalimantan Dayak culture. In addition, ideas for increasing the attractiveness of staying in the Kapuas Hulu district and in Karangan Bunut have been exchanged with travel agencies and other professional institutions.
In lively discussions, the interest in future cooperation was sparked and the future possibilities were explored. In addition, personal contacts could be established, which aimed at the further exchange and joint promotion of cross-border tourism.
Already on the trip home, the participants of the study trip agreed with which measures the tourist offer in their home village should be improved.

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry arranges the road map of e-learning development 2019-2024
Aiming to prepare the eLearning development roadmap of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) 2019-2024, the Center for Education and Human Resources for Environment and Forestry (Diklat SDM KLHK), in collaboration with GIZ and the World Bank Forest Investment Program (FIP) conducted a workshop on the 13th – 14th September in Jakarta. The roadmap will be used as a reference for the development of e-learning in the next five years. The workshop was attended by 50 participants from various technical directorates of KLHK, the Institute of State Administration (LAN), the Financial Education and Training Agency and international institutions/projects.
In his remarks, the Head of the Human Resources Planning and Development Agency (BP2SDM) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry said that human resources were increasing, and their distribution was widespread all over Indonesia. They need capacity building to improve their work performance. However, budget for capacity building is limited for the implementation of classical training. Therefore, e-learning education and training becomes one option to meet the needs of capacity development regarding human resources. The development of e-learning which was initiated in 2014 by the Training Center LHK in collaboration with GIZ and AIZ, is expected to move forward substantially in the future.
During the workshop, participants discussed priority trainings which will use e-learning, supporting policies and regulations that need to be prepared, strategies to mainstream e-learning into the Echelon 1, identifying facilities needed for HR development and testing competency of e-learning participants.
