IMG 20190819 WA0003

GIZ in cooperation with the NGO Working Group Tenure (WG-T) conducted a workshop on “Agreement Drafting in Multi-Stakeholder Conflicts within the Sector of Natural Resources” on August 13-15 in Bogor. The participants were three government and two NGO representatives from Kapuas Hulu in West Kalimantan, nine participants from Berau in East Kalimantan and three representatives of the CRU-IBCSD (Conflict Resolution Unit of the Indonesia Business Council on Sustainable Development). The workshop was aiming to teach the mentees how to draft an agreement once a mediation in a multi-stakeholder conflict has been successfully conducted.

The mentees learned about the various steps that need to be taken to write an official agreement, the legal and official background of agreements in the natural resource sector, various techniques on achieving consensus between the various stakeholders involved in such conflicts and transforming verbal agreements into a written document. Next to thematic presentations, the trainers put an emphasis on practical training and simulations of conflict mediations to increase the mentees’ skill set on applied methods in achieving consensual agreements within multi-stakeholder conflicts and documenting the results in an appropriate way.
