Forest Farmers Groups and FMUs in South Sulawesi Receive Training in Digital Marketing

2021 11 17 Training digital marketing 2

As a part of efforts aimed at supporting business development among Forest Management Units (KPH) and Forest Farmers Groups (KTH), FORCLIME, working in collaboration with the Centre for Forest Education and Training (Pusdiklat) at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), held a training session on the online marketing of forestry products in Makassar back in 2019. At a subsequent post-training evaluation held in 2021, participants affirmed that during the session they had acquired basic knowledge and training in the marketing of forest products produced by KPHs and KTHs.

As a follow-up to this training in online marketing, Pusdiklat and FORCLIME organized a Training in Digital Marketing course from 17 - 18 November 2021. Around 510 participants attended the first day’s session, while 195 were present on the second day. The material delivered during the first day encompassed basic knowledge of this topic, as well as architecture and the selection of digital marketing platforms. The second day’s session focused on digital marketing strategies, product strategies (from products to customers) and marketing strategies (from customers to products). Prior to the end of the two-day session, participants were tasked with creating an account on a given platform and with the marketing of products produced by each KPH and KTH.

“This training proved very useful, even though the training schedule was very tight, as only two days had been allotted for this course. I hope similar training will continue to be offered in the future, as the material presented has been very useful,” explained Dullah Adi, one of the participants from the Pekanbaru Forest Farmers Group.

Given that setting up and expanding a KTH business is a highly dynamic process, the Pusdiklat is now planning to develop a training package on the online marketing of forestry products. Moreover, the previous training curriculum on online marketing, as well as the post-training evaluation results, will be used as a reference during the development of this new training curriculum in online marketing.

As a follow-up to this training in digital marketing, the Pusdiklat will continue to undertake field visits to eight pilot FMUs spread across Indonesia.

FGD on the Macro-Plan for Natural Resources and Ecosystem Conservation

2021 11 21 FGD Conservation of Natural Resources and Their Ecosystems 1 small

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) through the Directorate of Planning of Forest Land Use and Establishment of Forest Management Areas (RPPWPH), held a focus group discussion (FGD) on the Draft Macro-Plan for Natural Resources and Ecosystem Conservation on 10 November 2021. This hybrid event was attended by 31 participants representing the Directorate-General of Nature Resources and Ecosystem Conservation (KSDAE), the Directorate-General of Forestry Planning and Environmental Management (PKTL) and FORCLIME. The FGD was opened by the Deputy Director of Forest Macro-Planning, Ms Neni Supreni, and was led by Dr Rinekso Soekmadi and Dr Nandi Kosmaryandi, who are experts in macro-planning preparation. The event aimed to gather input from the participants as regards improving the draft macro-plan document, which will be a vital component of MoEF efforts to regulate and facilitate biodiversity conservation efforts across Indonesia.

During his presentation, Dr Rinekso Soekmadi stressed the urgency of putting a macro-plan in place that highlights the importance of protecting biodiversity and ecosystems, and also promoting conservation efforts outside protected areas. In addition, Dr Soekmadi added that as a result of the fact that Indonesia has already ratified many international conventions, a macro-plan should be created that is capable of strengthening the country’s various commitments. Moreover, the macro-plan will also play an important role in the mainstreaming of conservation efforts and the achieving of Indonesia’s SDGs.

A second FGD has been scheduled and will discuss further address the above matters with the aim of finalizing a macro-plan before the end of the year.

Environment and Forestry Training Center in Makassar Enhances Capacity of Facilitated Farmers Groups Around the Tabo-Tabo Training Forest in South Sulawesi

2021 11 16 Technical Guidance on Fundamentals of Forest Farmer Groups of Tabo Tabo dm 1 2

With the purpose of enhancing knowledge regarding the various rights and duties of forest farmer groups (KTH) around the Tabo-Tabo Training Forest, the Environment and Forestry Training Center in Makassar (BDLHK Makassar) held a two-day workshop from 16 - 17 November 2021 within the village of Tabo-Tabo in South Sulawesi. The head of BDLHK Makassar opened the meeting on Tuesday morning via Zoom video conferencing. The training workshop, which was supported by FORCLIME, involved three participating groups of forest farmers, specifically Deswita, Mattiro Deceng and Mappaenre Dalle.

The forest farmer groups within this area have a huge potential as regards the development of small-scale local businesses working with palm sugar, honey and cashew nut production, as well as tourism. Said small businesses also have the potential to make a significant contribution to boosting the incomes of the local population.

The workshop participants received training in institutional management (i.e. accounting, human resource management and team building), business management (including marketing) and quality management. The participants also received training in the basic principles of KTH, specifically the administration of forest farmer groups and the development of group work plans. In addition, the participants received input regarding the rights and duties of KTH, including the necessary application steps for projects, as well as various possible courses of action relating to business development.

Mr Arifin from KTH Mappaenre Dalle stated during the meeting that, ‘During this training session, I learned a lot about the development of farmers groups and the marketing of products. I hope that we get to enjoy more practice during future training sessions’.
