2019 02 18 coaching business dev KPH Kaltara ms

With the intention of strengthening capacity of forest management units (KPH) in North Kalimantan province on preparing business development plans, FORCLIME together with Swarna Nusantara Indonesia organized a coaching session. The coaching session, which is part of a training series (basic, coaching, advanced) aimed to prepare participants to take the advanced training prior to the selection process. Representatives from five KPHs in North Kalimantan and local communities joined the two-day training on 18-19 February 2019 in Nunukan district, North Kalimantan. The training provides the tools for a successful production, processing and marketing of selected commodities that promote sustainable forest management and improve the welfare of local communities.

The Head of KPH Nunukan, Mr Bastiang, said that the coaching session is useful to accomplish our tasks and assignments. Furthermore, he said “we believe the application from the training will lead us to become an independent KPH”.

As part of the training, participants visited a community forest site, HKM Floresta, to see a community forest for which a business plan had already been developed. Mr Abdul Erwansyah - a forestry extension worker and HKM Floresta representative – announced that after participating in the previous training series Floresta realized the big opportunity to market their products. "This training has opened our minds in regards of producing good quality. The training provides a chance to share knowledge that generated ideas to develop a marketing strategy”, he said.
