To provide guidance on human resources development of Forest Management Units (FMU), from 2010-2013 the Center for Planning and Development of Forest Human Resources (Pusrenbang SDMK) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry formulated the Indonesian National Standard of Job Competency (SKKNI) for human resources in FMUs. The standard became then legally regulated through the Minister of Manpower and Transmigration decree No. 68 of 2013. Various parties have reviewed and analyzed the SKKNI and found some lack of accuracy and thus a need for improvement. Based on these findings, Pusrenbang SDMK, in collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME and the NGO Forum Komunikasi Kehutanan Masyarakat, visited the FMU Yogyakarta, FMU West Rinjani and FMU Berau in 2014 to collect inputs on the SKKNI, especially on topics such as community development, forest planning and forest utilization.
Site visit results from the three FMUs were presented during a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) in Bogor on 9 February 2015. The FGD aimed to obtain inputs for improving the SKKNI on the aspect of community empowerment. The discussion was attended by 25 participants representing the Agency for Forestry Extension and Development of Human Resources (BP2SDM) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, NGOs, and international organizations. Inputs from participants were related to the need to add competence for strengthening community economic institutions and developing community entrepreneurship.
Results from the FGD were directly followed up by the Center of Forestry Education and Training and Forestry Training Center in order to be integrated into a training curriculum that is currently being prepared.
