Kicking-off Mediation Training in Berau, East Kalimantan

Kick off mediation training

FORCLIME, in cooperation with other GIZ programme - Low Emissions Oil Palm Development (LEOPALD) – and the Conflict Resolution Unit of the Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (CRU-IBCSD), conducted a first meet-up for participants of an on-the-job mediation training on 20-21 February in Tanjung Redeb, Berau, East Kalimantan. The workshop was attended by 28 participants, representing agencies working on conflict in the land sector of Berau’s district government and local NGOs.

The on-the-job mediation training aims to improve hands-on mediation skills of local government and civil society practitioners regarding multi-stakeholder natural resource conflicts. The practitioners are trained to mediate real conflicts in their district under the guidance of the experienced mediators. The objective of the meet-up was to create mediation teams, introduce the first steps of a conflict assessment and search for conflicts suitable for mediation within their district.

Honey centre handing over

Tropical forest honey production constitutes a significant contributor to the local economy in Kapuas Hulu district. In order to increase the locally added value through efficient processing with consistent quality of this NTFP (Non Timber Forest Product) the installation a honey drying chamber was supported and financed in a joint effort between two separate GIZ (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) projects, namely FORCLIME and Electrification through Renewable Energy (ELREN) (“Green Chiller”). This unit has the capacity to reduce moisture content of 200 kg honey from the natural 26% down to the required national standard of 18% within 24 hours.

During the occasion of a project visit from a delegation from German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and GIZ to Kapuas Hulu the honey drying chamber was officially handed over by FORCLIME Programe Director Georg Buchholz to the Honey Production and NTFP usage centre (Sentra Wirausaha Produksi dan Pemanfaatan Komoditas Hasil Hutan Bukan Kayu).
