Following up on a previous informal discussion, FORCLIME and the Papua Natural Resources Conservation Center (BBKSDA Papua) held a coordination meeting on 23 June 2021 in Jayapura, Papua Province. The meeting was chaired by the Head of BBKSDA Papua, Mr Edward Sembiring, S.Hut., M.Sc., and aimed to synergize conservation partnership activities within the BBKSDA Papua area. Currently, some 14 conservation partnership groups have been formed within the KPHK Cyloop – Youtefa area. These groups have been approved by the Head of Village and their activities are being carried out in accordance with community potential. Conservation partnership activities are expected to bring significant changes to the community's economic condition.

During the discussion, two groups were proposed for the receiving of FORCLIME support, specifically:
- The village in Tablasupa for ecotourism activities and the production of imitation Cenderawasih ornaments to be used as PON XX souvenirs.
- A group in Dosay for orchid development. This group also has potential in terms of the development of honeybee cultivation.

In addition, the coordination meeting also addressed the various target villages that will be identified as FORCLIME 4.0 pilot villages. These designations are to be followed up by field visits.

“BBKSDA is pleased to work with FORCLIME and we can synergize with each other in order to open up opportunities for BBKSDA to cooperate with various parties. This collaboration is expected to result in community independence, meaning that communities will be able to produce without harming the forest. Prosperous Community, Sustainable Forest”, stated Mr Edward Sembiring, Head of BBKSDA Papua.

In an effort to attain inputs, particularly as regards locations that have the potential to be selected as pilot villages, FORCLIME organized a coordination meeting with the Customary Community Task Force (Gugus Tugas Masyarakat Adat-GTMA) on 22 June 2021 in Jayapura, Papua Province. The meeting was opened by Assistant I of the Regional Secretariat of Jayapura Regency, acting as Chair of the GTMA, Mr. Abdul Rahman Basri.

In Jayapura Regency, the GTMA, in collaboration with a number of other development partners, has carried out the mapping and facilitation of various Customary Communities (Masyarakat Hukum Adat - MHA) within the Jayapura Regency area. Said mapping activities, as undertaken by GTMA, include the mapping of the Buyaka customary area (outside of Lake Sentani), the Oktim customary area (which covers Unurumguay, Kaureh, Yapsi and Airum), the Dmutru customary area (which covers Nimboran, Elseng in Kemtuk and Kemtuk Gresi Districts), the Imbinumbay adat (which covers Rafinerara District bordering Jayapura City) and the Yewena Yonsu customary area (which covers Depapre District in Tablasupa and Tablanusu villages). In addition, the GTMA, working in collaboration with the technical implementing unit of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in Papua (BBKSDA) and the Jayapura Regency Government has succeeded in motivating 11 villages within the Nimbokrang area to sign an agreement aimed at turning their specific area into a customary conservation forest.

A follow-up to the coordination meeting was held in order to identify and determine the locations of FORCLIME 4.0 pilot villages that would develop social forestry programmes. The determination of these locations has taken into account the readiness of villages, as demonstrated through the active involvement of other parties, including the forestry agency in Jayapura.
