FORCLIME holds Quarterly Meeting in collaboration with PROPEAT

2022 06 06 FORCLIME QM

FORCLIME regularly holds Quarterly Meetings as a means of communicating and coordinating with its partners. During this second quarter of 2022, FORCLIME organized a Quarterly Meeting in Samarinda, which was held from 7 - 9 June 2022.

The first day of the Quarterly Meeting opened with a presentation that was given by Mr. Georg Buchholz, Programme Director of FORCLIME and that addressed updated policies at BMZ and GIZ as they relate to FORCLIME activities before going on to tackle the topic of the monitoring and evaluation of FORCLIME's progress and achievements within the context of the implementation of appropriate strategies heading forward.

Next, Mrs. Nur Hygiawati Rahayu, Director of Forestry and Water Resources Conservation at the Ministry of National Development Planning/Bappenas set out some possible directions in which the FORCLIME programme could head next and offered an explanation of various forestry planning issues at the national level, particularly in relation to bioeconomy. FORCLIME has pledged its support for Bappenas in terms of the conducting of a bioeconomy study, which is expected to contribute to the Background Study for the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2025 - 2029.

In the afternoon, discussions focused on the issue of Forest Management Units (KPH) and social forestry in Papua and West Papua. This session was attended virtually by representatives from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry Implementing Unit for Forest Planning (BPKH) Region X Jayapura, BPKH Region XVII Manokwari, Production Forest Management Center (BPHP) Region XV Jayapura and BPHP Region XVI Manokwari. The attending representatives from BPKH and BPHP discussed the challenges and potentials in their respective work areas and also provided input to FORCLIME regarding a potential collaboration.

The second day of the Quarterly Meeting featured a knowledge and learning exchange with GIZ’s Peatland Management and Rehabilitation Project (PROPEAT), which is being implemented in Kalimantan. The world cafe method was utilised during this knowledge exchange session while six booths discussed specific issues relating to FORCLIME and PROPEAT with two persons in charge (PIC) in each booth. With the exception of the PIC, the meeting participants were required to visit all of the booths, listen to explanations of the relevant issues and exchange ideas.

The agenda for the last day of the Quarterly Meeting included a visit to one of the ecotourism areas owned by PT Inhutani I, specifically Wanawisata Bukit Bangkirai.

Coordination with Cenderawasih University as part of internship preparations at FORCLIME

2022 05 23 Coordination Meetings With FMIPA Universitas Cenderawasih tr 2

In an effort to organize and prepare for the implementation of internships and the thematic community service programme (KKN), the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA) at Cenderawasih University and FORCLIME held a coordination meeting on 23 May 2022 in the FMIPA Meeting Room at the Cenderawasih University (Uncen) Campus in Jayapura, Papua. The meeting was chaired by the Dean of the FMIPA, Dr. Dirk Runtoboi, M.Kes., and was also attended by FORCLIME’s Programme Director.

The meeting got underway with a presentation that was made by two FMIPA students, Sonia Kwano and Mia Esti Asmuruf, who participated in FORCLIME’s internship programme for six months, which is the equivalent of 20 semester credit units (SKS) for courses that relate to internship materials at FORCLIME.

During the presentation, the learning materials utilized during the internship programme were discussed, including the Free, Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) process; participatory mapping; the forest planning process through the preparation of the Long Term Management Plan (RPJP) for conservation areas; the identification of villages that will receive FORCLIME support; and administrative processes that refer to the GIZ standard. In addition, Sonia and Mia also gained knowledge of mapping techniques under the supervision of a GIS Advisor.

"I am very proud because, through the internship programme at FORCLIME, students are able to improve their soft skills and gain other experiences that cannot be obtained through campus learning," explained Dr. Dirk Runtoboi, M.Kes, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Cenderawasih University.

Meanwhile, Dr. Octalia Togibasa, Assistant Dean 1 of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, explained during the discussion that this kind of internship programme needs to be continued as it offers significant support to the campus, particularly in terms of developing the Independent Learning-Independence Campus model (MBKM).

FORCLIME’s programme director, George Buchholz offered an assurance that FORCLIME would continue to support both the internship programme and the thematic community service programme. Moreover, in 2022, FORCLIME is set to welcome three intern students, as well as a group of students who will engage in thematic KKN with a focus on implementing activities in FORCLIME-supported villages. The internship and KKN programme will be held in August 2022 and thus preparations will commence as soon as possible.

In addition to Cenderawasih University, the FORCLIME internship programme will also be implemented in conjunction with Ottow Geissler University Papua and Musamus University Merauke.
