Sosialisasi KTH Emaus Sausapor Tambrauw 5

The Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) Unit IV of Tambrauw and KPHP Unit V of Sorong Selatan, supported by FORCLIME, recently held a dissemination session that specifically addressed the protection and utilization of forest resources by forest farmer groups in four supported villages, namely: Kampung Haha and Kampung Wendi (South Sorong Regency), and the villages of Bikar and Emmaus (Tambrauw Regency). These sessions were held from 18 - 30 November 2022.

These dissemination sessions on the protection and utilization of forest resources aimed to educate the parties concerned regarding the importance of forests in supporting the lives of living things. The topics presented during the session were: The impact of environmental damage and the utilization of non-timber forest resources (Myrmecodia pendans for herbal tea, agarwood, candlenut and oil made from Cinnamomum culilawan).

This outreach activity was delivered by six students from the Department of Forestry, Faculty of Forestry at the University of Papua, Manokwari, West Papua who were completing internships with FORCLIME. These intern apprentices were placed in FORCLIME-supported villages to support the implementation of Social Forestry programmes at the site level, as follows:

1. Adrian Maulana and Nur Ulfa Fauziah at Kampung Bikar.
2. Eliza Samosir and Kesya Daeng at Kampung Emaus.
3. Jekson Tigtigweria at Kampung Wendi.
4. Steven Angrianto at Kampung Haha

The outreach methods used encompassed the watching of videos on forests and their functions, the distribution of brochures and the telling of stories.

It's good to participate in an event like this so that we can learn about the benefits of agarwood. To date, we have only known that agarwood can be used as a medicine, however, we have not known exactly what such medicine can be used for,” stated Mama Kamesrar, a resident of Kampung Haha.

2022 12 01 Diskusi METT kelompok Utara papua Theodora Resubun

The Conservation Center (BBKSDA) in Papua is the technical implementing unit of the Directorate-General of Natural Resources and Ecosystem Conservation at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in Papua Province. This unit manages 19 conservation areas within the province. During the management of conservation areas, assessments of management effectiveness are an important instrument for the identification of priorities and the allocation of resources in order to achieve the relevant management objectives. In an effort to ascertain the effectiveness of the management of conservation areas within its territory, BBKSDA Papua recently assessed nine conservation areas under its administration, specifically: the Nature Reserve (CA) of Pegunungan Cycloop; the natural parks (TWA) of Teluk Youtefa, CA Biak Utara, CA Enarotali and CA Yapen Tengah; and the Wildlife Reserves (SM) of Pegunungan Jayawijaya, SM Pulau Dolok, SM Pulau Komolom and SM Pulau Savan. These assessments were carried out through FGDs using the Management Effectiveness Tracking Tool (METT) approach in Jayapura, Papua Province between 29 November and 1 December 2022. During the implementation of these activities, BBKSDA Papua involved managers at the regional section level, relevant government agencies, academics and also representatives from customary communities. Through this METT assessment, BBKSDA Papua will be able to work out the management levels of these areas so that recommendations and future management plans can be formulated through priority programmes capable of increasing the effectiveness of area management. In addition, the METT assessment offers an opportunity for development partners to develop priority programmes capable of supporting BBKSDA in the management of their areas.

The assessment of these nine conservation areas, supported by FORCLIME, was carried out through FDG. Participants were divided into four groups and were assisted by FORCLIME’s main facilitator, Dr. Ismet Khaeruddin, as well as by Prihananto Setiadji S.T., MT. from Cenderawasih University and also four co-facilitators from BBKSDA Papua.

The METT assessment will ultimately generate recommendations and an action plan that will be aimed at improving the effectiveness of conservation area management.
