In an effort to ensure the conservation of wildlife (flora and fauna), the Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BBKSDA) in Papua, supported by FORCLIME, held a workshop on the Management of Wildlife Utilization on 6 January 2023 in Jayapura, Papua Province. The hybrid workshop was opened by the Head of the BBKSDA, A.G. Martana, S.Hut., M.P.

The workshop was attended by officials from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), specifically the Director of Conservation for Biodiversity and Genetic Resources, Drh. Indra Exploitasia, M.Sc., and representatives from the Directorate of Environmental Impact Prevention, Business and Activities, as well as the Head of KLHK Technical Implementation Units in Papua Province (The Center for Employment of Ecoregion Development, The Mamberamo Watershed Management Center, The Forest and Environmental Area Center, The Center for Sustainable Forest Management), and also the Heads of various Papuan National Parks (Wasur, Lorentz, Teluk Cenderawasih). In addition, the Head of the Jayapura Agricultural Quarantine Center was also in attendance, as well as various private sector players that are currently engaging in the use of natural resources within Papua Province.

There are three pillars that are the basis for the management of the conservation of living natural resources and their ecosystems, specifically: the protection of life support systems; the preservation of the diversity of wild plants and wild animals and their ecosystems; and the sustainable use of living natural resources and their ecosystems,” the Head of BBKSDA explained in his remarks. “The implementation of these three pillars, if carried out consistently, can support efforts to improve people’s welfare and improve the quality of human life,” he added.

During the workshop, participants received information and knowledge relating to the following areas and from the following sources:

  1. Management of wildlife flora and fauna (TSL) through protection, preservation and utilization from the Director for the Conservation of Biodiversity and Genetic Resources, KLHK, drh. Indra Eksploitasia, M.Sc.
  2. Prevention and handling of wild animal diseases from the Head of the Jayapura Agricultural Quarantine Center, drh. Muhlis Natsir, M.Kes.
  3. Licensing for businesses that utilize wildlife (flora and fauna) from the Head of the Sub-Directorate for Species Utilization and Genetics, Directorate of Conservation of Biodiversity and Genetic Resources, KLHK, Ratih Listyo Rini, S.hut, M.Ec., M.E.
  4. Services for licensing and the evaluation of wildlife businesses from the Head of the Papua Natural Resources Conservation Technical Division, Julius Palita, S.Hut.
  5. Opportunities and challenges relating to the business of wildlife utilization in Indonesia from the Chairman of the Association of Indonesian Flora Fauna Entrepreneurs, Mashur MA, S.H., M.Sc.
  6. The Online Single Submission (OSS) licensing service from the Directorate for the Prevention of Environmental Impacts, Businesses and Activities, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Nugroho Indra Windardi, S.Hut.

As these were a series of workshops, the following day (7 January 2023) saw the BBKSDA Papua, in conjunction with related partners, releasing 19 wild animals in a forest close to the village of Dosai. The released animals included two white-lipped pythons (Leiopython albertisii), three green tree pythons (Morelia viridis), one Papuan ground boa (Candoia aspera), two Papuan monitor lizards (Varanus salvadorii), eight black-capped lories (Lorius lory) and three Sulphur-crested cockatoos (Cacatua galerita). Some of the released animals had been translocated from the East Java Natural Resources Conservation Center, while others had been handed over by the Jayapura Agricultural Quarantine Center, Papua Regional Police Headquarters and local communities.

As a follow-up to this workshop, help for forest farmer groups in supported villages will be provided, particularly help relating to the utilization of orchids in order to secure permits through the Online Single Submission (OSS) system.

2023 01 05 Koordinasi Dishut dan Unipa Penyusunan RPHJP Provinsi papua Barat ny

To commence activities for the new year of 2023, the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service held a coordination meeting with the University of Papua and FORCLIME on 5 January 2023 in Manokwari, West Papua. The meeting was aimed at the development of a work plan for 2023 that will encompass coaching clinics for Forest Management Units (KPH) operating within the province in an effort to adjust the Long Term Forest Management Plan (RPHJP) to bring it into line with Minister of Environment and Forestry Regulation No. 8 of 2021 on Forest Management, the Preparation of Forest Management Plans and Forest Utilization in Protected Forests and Production Forests, as well as with Decree of the Minister of Environment and Forestry No. 113/MENLHK/SETJENT/PLA.2/2/2022 on the Designation of Areas for Management Units for Protection Forest Management and Production Forest Management Units for the Province of West Papua. Through the issuance of this decree, the management area of the FMU is no longer based on watersheds (DAS) but is instead now based on administration. This means that the area and number of FMUs in West Papua Province have also changed and now number 14 units.

The coaching clinics for the preparation of the West Papua Province KPH RPHJP will be held from 19 – 21 January 2023 in Sorong, West Papua and are the result of a collaboration between the West Papua Forestry Service, the Faculty of Forestry at the University of Papua and GIZ FORCLIME. Moreover, each of these three parties will contribute to the implementation of this technical development.

During the meeting, the Head of the Forestry Service, Mr. Ir. Runaweri F., MM., also incorporated a number of activities that relate to capacity building into the 2023 work plan, including Training on Tree Species Identification and Dendrology. The training is intended to improve skills relating to the identification of species of forest tree among Forest Service and KPH staff. In addition, a further activity that has been incorporated into the work plan is the taking of an inventory of the various bio-geophysical, social, economic and cultural potentials that are present within the Tambrauw KPH area.

Multi-Stakeholder Forum of the Betung Kerihun Danau Sentarum Biosphere Reserve conducts study visit to the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve

2022 12 16 Kunjungan CB Betung Kerihun Danau Sentarum ke CBLL fa 4

The Betung Kerihun Danau Sentarum Biosphere Reserve (BKDSBR) of Kapuas Hulu has been established by UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme since July 2018. In 2020, the Regent of Kapuas Hulu formed the Multi-Stakeholder Forum (MSF), consisting of 80 people in the secretariat forum, as a tool of coordination and communication between stakeholders, both from the government, the private sector and CSOs. During the implementation of the biosphere reserve programme, the MSF has experienced various obstacles and challenges. In response, representatives from BKDSBR conducted a visit to the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve (LLBR) from 12 - 16 December 2022 to see, study and exchange experiences regarding the management of biosphere reserves.

The arrival of the BKDSBR team was welcomed by the Head of the Central Sulawesi Province Bappeda, Dr. Ir. Christina Shandra Tobondo, MT. The LLBR team then took the BKDSBR team to several strategic locations currently under LLBR management, such as the LLBR secretariat in the Lore Lindu National Park, a shop selling various SME products produced by the LLBR (Rumah Coklat), a shop selling various forest management units products (Galeri KPH) and an orchid community group operating within the LLBR (Kareba Orchid of LLBR). Several important points were raised during the discussion, including in relation to the following areas:

- Coordination through multistakeholder forums, including the placement of an effective Biosphere Reserve secretariat.
- Synchronization of existing government plans with the Biosphere Reserve programme.
- The branding of Biosphere Reserve products through a product registration and verification system.

As a follow-up to this study visit, BKDSBR will implement various activities that have already been implemented by the LLBR, such as the placement of a biosphere reserve secretariat and synchronisation with government plans and budgets to support the biosphere reserve programme.
