As a follow-up to the evaluation workshop on the Long-Term Management Plan (RPJP) for Balai Taman Nasional (TN) Wasur for the 2013 - 2024 period, FORCLIME recently facilitated the RPJP evaluation working group to present its evaluation results to the Head of Balai TN Wasur and representatives of the Directorate of Conservation Areas at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The presentation was held on 9 September 2021 at the national park’s office in Merauke and was also conducted online.
The meeting was opened by the Head of Balai TN Wasur, Mr Yarman, before getting underway with a presentation of the evaluation results given by the RPJP evaluation working group. The evaluation results indicate the need to develop a new RPJP that will serve as a set of guidelines and offer directions to the management of Wasur National Park during the 2021 - 2030 period. During the discussion, FORCLIME representatives outlined the importance of addressing gender mainstreaming issues within the new RPJP document. Meanwhile, a representative from the Directorate of Conservation Areas, Mr. Dian Risdianto, expressed his appreciation for the evaluation process and stated his hope that the revision of the RPJP document could be completed within the next three months.
The Head of TN Wasur will form a Technical Working Group for the Development of RPJP TN Wasur for the 2021 - 2030 period and FORCLIME will continue to offer support in relation to the development of the new RPJP.
