FGD on the Macro-Plan for Natural Resources and Ecosystem Conservation

2021 11 21 FGD Conservation of Natural Resources and Their Ecosystems 1 small

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) through the Directorate of Planning of Forest Land Use and Establishment of Forest Management Areas (RPPWPH), held a focus group discussion (FGD) on the Draft Macro-Plan for Natural Resources and Ecosystem Conservation on 10 November 2021. This hybrid event was attended by 31 participants representing the Directorate-General of Nature Resources and Ecosystem Conservation (KSDAE), the Directorate-General of Forestry Planning and Environmental Management (PKTL) and FORCLIME. The FGD was opened by the Deputy Director of Forest Macro-Planning, Ms Neni Supreni, and was led by Dr Rinekso Soekmadi and Dr Nandi Kosmaryandi, who are experts in macro-planning preparation. The event aimed to gather input from the participants as regards improving the draft macro-plan document, which will be a vital component of MoEF efforts to regulate and facilitate biodiversity conservation efforts across Indonesia.

During his presentation, Dr Rinekso Soekmadi stressed the urgency of putting a macro-plan in place that highlights the importance of protecting biodiversity and ecosystems, and also promoting conservation efforts outside protected areas. In addition, Dr Soekmadi added that as a result of the fact that Indonesia has already ratified many international conventions, a macro-plan should be created that is capable of strengthening the country’s various commitments. Moreover, the macro-plan will also play an important role in the mainstreaming of conservation efforts and the achieving of Indonesia’s SDGs.

A second FGD has been scheduled and will discuss further address the above matters with the aim of finalizing a macro-plan before the end of the year.

Environment and Forestry Training Center in Makassar Enhances Capacity of Facilitated Farmers Groups Around the Tabo-Tabo Training Forest in South Sulawesi

2021 11 16 Technical Guidance on Fundamentals of Forest Farmer Groups of Tabo Tabo dm 1 2

With the purpose of enhancing knowledge regarding the various rights and duties of forest farmer groups (KTH) around the Tabo-Tabo Training Forest, the Environment and Forestry Training Center in Makassar (BDLHK Makassar) held a two-day workshop from 16 - 17 November 2021 within the village of Tabo-Tabo in South Sulawesi. The head of BDLHK Makassar opened the meeting on Tuesday morning via Zoom video conferencing. The training workshop, which was supported by FORCLIME, involved three participating groups of forest farmers, specifically Deswita, Mattiro Deceng and Mappaenre Dalle.

The forest farmer groups within this area have a huge potential as regards the development of small-scale local businesses working with palm sugar, honey and cashew nut production, as well as tourism. Said small businesses also have the potential to make a significant contribution to boosting the incomes of the local population.

The workshop participants received training in institutional management (i.e. accounting, human resource management and team building), business management (including marketing) and quality management. The participants also received training in the basic principles of KTH, specifically the administration of forest farmer groups and the development of group work plans. In addition, the participants received input regarding the rights and duties of KTH, including the necessary application steps for projects, as well as various possible courses of action relating to business development.

Mr Arifin from KTH Mappaenre Dalle stated during the meeting that, ‘During this training session, I learned a lot about the development of farmers groups and the marketing of products. I hope that we get to enjoy more practice during future training sessions’.

Assessment of the Conservation Area Management Effectiveness in Lore Lindu National Park

2021 11 03 METT Facilitation

Assessment of the conservation area management effectiveness is important as the assessment process can serve as a forum for information sharing between management staff, and can ensure that the management is in accordance with the mandate of conservation area. In Indonesia, the method used to assess management effectiveness is the Management Effectiveness Tracking Tool (METT), which should be conducted every two years and covers six aspects, namely: (1) context, covering the legal status of the area, (2) planning, (3) input, (4) process, (5) output, and (6) outcome. This METT assessment can be done independently by each area manager, and can also involve the community around the area and other stakeholders, assisted by an independent facilitator for a more comprehensive and balanced or objective assessment result.

The Lore Lindu National Park Center (BBTN) last conducted the METT assessment in 2019 with a score of 74, and previously in 2017 with a score of 72. Therefore, this year BBTN Lore Lindu again conducted an assessment to assess the level of management effectiveness within the period of January 2020 to November 2021. METT assessment was held on 2-3 November 2021 at the BBTN Lore Lindu Office, Palu, Central Sulawesi. In this activity, FORCLIME, represented by Mr. Ismet Khaeruddin, together with Mr. Andhika Chandra, S.Hut, M.Sc as representatives from the Directorate of Conservation Area Management, Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), facilitated the METT assessment.

The result of the self-assessment shows an increase in management effectiveness with a METT score of 80, which is generally due to the implementation of the 2019 METT assessment recommendations. The result of this assessment will be reported and verified by the Directorate of Conservation Area Management KLHK, thus BBTN Lore Lindu needs to complete all the required documents as evidence and verification material.
