With the goal of synergizing the implementation of their 2021 programmes, FORCLIME and the Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) at Tambrauw held a meeting on Tuesday, 12 October 2021 at the KPHP Tambrauw Office, Sausapor, West Papua. The meeting was opened by the Head of KPHP Tambrauw, Petrus Freddy Tawer. During the meeting, the discussions tackled the potential for a synchronised work plan between FORCLIME and KPHP Tambrauw, including the preparation of a Long-Term Forest Management Plan (RPHJP) and capacity development in relation to KPHP Tambrauw’s human resources.
In addition, the discussions also addressed preparations for a field visit to potential FORCLIME and KPHP Tambrauw joint pilot villages. Three potential villages have been proposed, specifically Orwem Village in Distrik Kwoor, Emmaus Village in Distrik Sausapor and Bikar Village in Distrik Bikar. The field visits commenced the following day and ran from 13 - 15 October 2021. These visits were undertaken by representatives of both FORCLIME and KPHP Tambrauw.
The Head of KPHP Tambrauw expressed his appreciation for FORCLIME’s visit to Tambrauw and its efforts to synchronize its work plan and identify pilot villages on a joint basis. ‘The management and development of KPHP requires support from various parties and we are grateful for the cooperation with FORCLIME. As a local resident of Tambrauw, I hope that the huge potential for Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) in Tambrauw can be managed in synergy with the Forestry Service, KPHP and the community’, explained Mr. Petrus Freddy Tawer, Head of KPHP Tambrauw.
