Sub-WG Gender at DG of Human Resources Extension and Development Prepare Work Plan for 2022

2022 05 30 Rapat Koordinasi Penyusunan Rencana Kerja Sub Pokja Gender BP2SDM em

For the last few years, the Directorate-General of Human Resources Extension and Development (Badan Penyuluhan dan Pengembangan Sumber Daya Manusia - BP2SDM) at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry has stood by its firm commitment to developing gender mainstreaming programmes (pengarusutamaan gender-PUG). This commitment has been realized through joint activities with FORCLIME since 2018.

In order to strengthen Gender Mainstreaming (PUG) efforts at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), the Gender Sub-Working Group held a recent meeting with FORCLIME in order to discuss a workplan for 2022. The meeting was held online on 30 May 2022 and was attended by 52 participants from various working units within BP2SDM, as well as from FORCLIME and the MoEF Gender Working Group.

The plans that will be implemented in 2022 break down as follows:
1. Validation of the Criteria and Indicators for Gender Responsive Education and Training Institutions.
2. Preparation of Gender Analysis Pathways and a Gender Budget Statement for the 2023 Work Plan for working units under BP2SDM.
3. Preparation of a lessons-learned book based on the experiences of BP2SDM staff (extensions, lecturers, etc.) in relation to gender mainstreaming through the use of the storytelling method.
4. Preparation of a Gender Mainstreaming Pocket Book for Forestry and Environmental Extension Officers.
5. Development of Criteria and Indicators for Gender Responsivity for Forestry Vocational High Schools.
6. Renewal of Decree of the BP2SDM Gender Sub-Working Group Team.

Through these efforts, the PUG programmes at the MoEF are expected, particularly at BP2SDM, to become firmer and more institutionalized.

The cooperation between the Gender Sub-Working Group and FORCLIME has been going on for a long time. We hope that FORCLIME's support will continue so that PUG activities at BP2SDM will become more solid,” explained Agus Setiawan (Sub-Pokja Gender of BP2SDM).

FORCLIME and Forestry and Environment Service of Papua Province coordinate to develop joint work programme in supported village

2022 05 23 Coordination with DKLH Papua and sign Risalah diskusi untuk kampung supported tr

During the recent visit of the FORCLIME Programme Director to Tanah Papua, attending a coordination meeting with the Papua Forestry and Environment Service (Dinas KLH) was on the agenda. The meeting chaired by the Head of the Forestry and Environment Service, Mr Jan Jap L. Ormuseray, S.H., M.Sc., and was held on 23 May 2022 in the Dinas KLH meeting room in Jayapura, Papua Province.

The meeting discussed strategic programmes that will be implemented by Dinas KLH and FORCLIME in the jointly determined supported village, namely Babrongko.

The work programmes were simultaneously prepared based on the potential of the village, as determined during a recent field visit. The village of Babrongko has potential in ecotourism and non-timber forest products (NTFPs), including Kombow (a basic material used for carving, painting bark and sculptures). Currently, some 5 hectares of Kombow trees originally planted as part of the Dinas KLH planting programme are ready to be harvested. Moreover, the community already has the ability to produce handicrafts from this important tree. However, these products need to be further refined in order to achieve greater economic value and to increase market demand. For this reason, it will be necessary to increase the capacity of the craftsman group. Kampung Babrongko is also famous for the abundant potential of its tilapia fish. In addition to being sold as fresh fish, tilapia can be processed into other products that are more durable, including shredded tilapia. Meanwhile, Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) Unit XXIII also has ecotourism potential in relation to special interest tourism, including fishing and the observation of sea turtle nesting. As a result, expert support is needed to create successful ecotourism and FORCLIME is an integral part of this plan.

During the recent coordination meeting, FORCLIME confirmed its support for various activities, including the following:

  • Support for KPHP XXIII, in addition to capacity building and support for bio-geophysical studies relating to the preparation of forest management plan documents (RPHJP). FORCLIME is also supporting the preparation of an ecotourism master plan through the provision of needed experts.
  • Support for the sale of community products through the KPH Gallery and through digital marketing training, as well as leadership training at the management level through the Forest Management Unit (KPH) and KPH Gallery.

Other topics that were also discussed at the meeting and that will require support from FORCLIME included Papua’s hosting of the Green Climate Fund Task Force (GCFTF) 2023, strengthening the capacity of the REDD+ Working Group, development of NTFPs (particularly in relation to food safety certification) and the utilization of sago processing waste in relation to sago mushroom farming.

In his speech, the Head of the Dinas KLH affirmed that the most important programme involved increasing the capacities of the human resources available to the community, so that the potentials around them can be developed.

FORCLIME's support for Dinas KLH is highly strategic because FORCLIME's programmes are in line with programmes being run by Dinas KLH and are also consistent with the Vision and Mission of the Governor of Papua,” explained Mr. Jan Jap L. Ormuseray, S.H, M.Sc., Head of the Dinas KLH for Papua Province.

During the coordination meeting, it was also agreed that a Free, Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) process should be implemented in the assisted village in the near future.

FORCLIME facilitates first-aid training for Forestry Vocational Training School teachers in Makassar

2022 05 11 First Aid Makassar 2

Forestry work and field activities that are undertaken in rural areas come with high risks attached. Among these risks are the long distances that have to be traveled to the nearest healthcare facilities, making knowledge of basic first aid vital. Teachers at the forestry vocational training school have a special responsibility to their students in this regard, including being able to anticipate possibly fatal accidents.

In order to ensure the safety of these students, FORCLIME facilitated a first-aid training session for teachers from the Makassar Forestry Vocational Training School on 11 - 13 May 2022 at both the Forestry Vocational Training School itself and in the Tabo-Tabo Educational Forest in Makassar. The training session was conducted by the South Sulawesi branch of the Indonesian Red Cross and was attended by 20 teachers.

On the first day, the participants gathered in the school hall, where they received theory-based lectures on basic first-aid knowledge and were also presented with an overview of the various laws and regulations that apply in relation to first aid. Participants were also presented with demonstrations and videos relating to first-aid processes and techniques.

The training session continued on the second day in the Tabo-Tabo Educational Forest, where participants learned a number of practical rescue techniques and were also taught about risk assessments, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the Heimlich Manoeuvre, emergency calls and other important first-aid skills. On the final day of the training session, the participants took a theoretical and practical test and were assessed by the Indonesian Red Cross team.

The results of a training satisfaction questionnaire revealed that the majority of the participants were satisfied with the training, with many saying that the session had been very useful and would support their work, equipping them with the ability to deal with students who experience accidents.
