Training needs assessment at the forest management unit in Sorong Selatan, West Papua

2020 11 05 TNA at KPH Sorong Selatan

Aiming to support the development of human resources at the forest management unit in South Sorong (KPH Sorong Selatan) in West Papua Province, four FORCLIME interns who are also alumni of the Faculty of Forestry, State University of Papua conducted an interview to identify needed trainings (IKD) at the KPH Sorong Selatan on 27th – 30th October 2020. The purpose of this activity was to identify the competency development needs for every staff member of KPH Sorong Selatan. This will hopefully lead to developing a training plan to facilitate improved competency for all staff members and help them conduct their duties in a more professional way.

Data collection for IKD was carried out using questionnaires, interviews, as well as using secondary data. Interviews and meetings were all carried out complying with existing coronavirus pandemic health protocols. In general, data collection was conducted smoothly due to good support from the Head and staff of KPH Sorong Selatan. One constraint faced during data collection was a shortage of personnel from the West Papua Province Forestry Service because they are not currently present at the office on a regular basis as the agency is implementing a work from home policy due to the pandemic. To overcome this additional data collection will be carried out by appointed KPH Sorong Selatan personnel. Following the completion of gathering data, the IKD team, supported by the FORCLIME Technical Adviser, will analyse the data and develop a report.
