Lore Lindu National Park Evaluates Community Conservation Agreements in Lore Piore and Lore Tengah, Central Sulawesi

2022 04 26 Workshop Evaluasi Kesepakatan Konservasi Masyarakat fa 2

The Lore Lindu National Park is currently engaging in a number of conservation partnerships with villages around the area through the Village Conservation Management Institute (Lembaga Pengelola Konservasi Desa – LPKD) formed by the village head. This conservation partnership is an arrangement that grants rights to various communities living around the Lore Lindu National Park in terms of access to and the collection of non-timber forest products (NTFPs), traditional farming and the utilization of environmental services. As of 2021, the Lore Lindu National Park Office had established a conservation partnership with 56 villages around the national park area.

In order to discuss these achievements, as well as various challenges that will have to be faced and plans for future activities, the Lore Lindu National Park Management held a workshop in order to evaluate the conservation agreements that were signed back in 2019. The event was opened by the Division Head of the National Park Management for Poso Region III, Mr. Eko Purwanto, S. Hut. and was held on 25 April 2022 in Lore Tengah, Poso Regency, Central Sulawesi. During the workshop, evaluations were carried out in five villages in Central Lore District and four villages in Lore Piore District. These evaluations were aiming to determine developments and progress, as well as to identify problems and anticipate problem-solving initiatives as regards the implementation of community conservation partnerships.

The activities carried out by the LPKD in the wake of it receiving funding support have included the following:

  • Institutional Strengthening of various institutions, including meetings and regular meetings that discussed planned activities, the purchase of secretariat equipment and training sessions on institutional financial bookkeeping, as well as training in writing and documentation.
  • Economic Business Development, including the identification of non-timber forest product craftsmen; support for craftsmen working with rattan, forest pandanus and traditional weaved bracelets (Eha); the cultivation of freshwater fish and duck farming. This type of development also involves the collection of non-timber forest products, such as rattan, bamboo and forest pandanus as raw materials for handicrafts.
  • Area Management: including the construction of nurseries; the procurement of multi-functional plant seeds (durian, avocado, mangosteen, candlenut, rambutan, coffee, cocoa); and the development of nurseries for various plant species classified as non-timber forest products, such as rattan, pandanus and timber seeds.

The workshop also discussed ways of overcoming obstacles/challenges, as well as various follow-up plans, specifically:
1. Activation of the secretariat and revitalization of the management.
2. The Head of the Resort was asked to make a ranked presentation to the Lore Lindu National Park.
3. Increasing awareness among the general public through the dissemination of information about the Conservation Partnership programme.
4. Organization of regular training activities aimed at attracting the interest of the younger generation.
5. Seeking out of networks and marketing partners for non-timber forest products.
6. Identification of key products for joint marketing. One potential commodity that features widely across the Lore area is coffee. In this regard, GIZ is currently facilitating network marketing in conjunction with Catur Coffee.
7. Organization of a study tour to Yogya in order to study mushroom farming (as the area has a high potential in terms of the cultivation of mushrooms), as well as to learn traditional bracelet weaving (Eha).
