2022 04 27 Training for Kampongs Facilitators Tanah Papua mb 4

In order to facilitate the implementation of joint activities in a number of FORCLIME-supported villages across Tanah Papua, nine facilitators have been jointly selected by main local partners working within the provinces of Papua and West Papua, i.e. Provincial Forestry Services and conservation agencies. Selected facilitators attended a recent introductory training session that was held prior to their engagement with the programme’s implementation. The training session took place on 25 – 27 April 2022 in Manokwari, West Papua and was coordinated with a number of main local partners located within the provinces of Papua and West Papua, including the Forestry Services of Papua and West Papua, various conservation agencies (including Balai Besar Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam) and the Wasur National Park.

Ultimately, nine selected facilitators will be posted to FORCLIME supported villages, specifically Bikar and Emaus in Tambrauw Regency, Haha and Wendi in Sorong Selatan Regency, Babrongko, Dosay and Tablasupa in Jayapura Regency, and Wasur and Yanggandur in Merauke Regency. Each village will be supported by a single facilitator.

During the training session, the facilitators learned about GIZ in general, FORCLIME 4.0, forest management units and social forestry, and also received input on project management and assistance (institutional, area, business management), as well as on the principles of participatory village planning and Free Prior Informed Consent (FPIC). In addition, the facilitators were also presented with information on GIZ’s financial procedures.

Preliminary survey of rattan availability in Central Sulawesi completed

2022 04 21 Survey awal ketersediaan rotan di Desa Namo dan Nupa Bomba fa 6

To identify the potential availability of rattan as a non-timber forest product in Central Sulawesi, the Central Sulawesi Provincial Forestry Service and FORCLIME conducted a survey in the villages of Namo and Nupa Bomba in Sigi Regency on 20 – 21 April 2022. This initial survey aimed to ascertain the ability of natural rattan to support the work of Forest Farmers’ Groups (KTH) as they develop their capacities in relation to forest management and the marketing of sustainable non-timber forest products. In addition, the survey is also supporting other GIZ programme that relate to rattan, specifically the Rattan Sustainability Project. The results of this survey will ultimately be used as a part of the project in order to determine the locations of related activities through a consideration of rattan’s potential, the existence of rattan farmers’ groups and the possibility of developing a rattan processing site. This initial survey was led by Prof. Tanra from Tadulako University in Central Sulawesi.

The Rattan Sustainability Project is one of the GIZ programmes that is being managed by the Business Hub in collaboration with Vivere and Out for Space and is aiming to promote a sustainable supply chain for innovative rattan products.
