Training session on FPIC for students and academics held at Ottow Geissler University, Papua

2021 10 27 Day 1 Opening Agenda TOT FPIC

Ottow Geissler University, supported by FORCLIME, held a training of trainers (ToT) session for the university’s students and academics from 27 - 30 October 2021 in Jayapura City, Papua Province. The ToT was held in order to support the Ottow Geissler University as it seeks to establish its Educational Forest (Hutan Pendidikan) within the Pasir 6 area of North Jayapura, which is in the territory of the traditional community of Necheibe Ormu.

This training session for the Civitas Academica, particularly the Team involved in the establishment of the Educational Forest, was held in order to teach a number of additional basic skills that are required to be understood and mastered in order to facilitate high-quality, open, fully informed and participatory agreement processes aimed at securing mutual agreements. Decent, comprehensive, informed consent should be communicated to the relevant communities and should address the benefits and impacts that they will experience when a given programme is implemented.

“I hope that this FPIC Training of Trainers will be able to produce good trainers and can be applied in the real world,” explained the Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, Forestry and Marine Affairs at Ottow Geissler University, Mr. Simon H. Nenepath, M.Sc., during his opening remarks.

FORCLIME and Ministry of Environment and Forestry coordinate to seek way forward on gender mainstreaming activities

2021 10 13 Koordinasi dg BP2SDM tentang PUG

With the intention of synergizing activities relating to gender mainstreaming (PUG) at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), the Human Resources Extension and Development Agency (BP2SDM), in conjunction with FORCLIME, held a coordination meeting on 13 October 2021 aimed at seeking agreement on various focused joint activities. The meeting was held in the meeting room of the BP2SDM Secretariat at the Manggala Wanabhakti building in Jakarta and was opened by Mr. Gun Gun Hidayat, Ph.D., the Head of the Programme and Cooperation department at the Secretariat of the BP2SDM. The meeting attendees agreed to focus on the following activities:
1. Improving the indicator criteria for gender-responsive education and training institutions.
2. Development of a Gender Analysis Pathway (GAP) and Gender Budget System (GBS).
3. Development of a storybook containing practical experiences relating to the implementation of PUG activities.
4. Development of a gender-responsive pocketbook for extension workers.
5. Creation of a series of board games: “Gender in Forestry and Environment”.
6. Development of a gender-responsive curriculum for education/schools.

Some of the above activities are likely to be implemented before the end of 2021. For example, the preparation of indicator criteria for gender-responsive education and training institutions is currently in the refinement stage and is set for internal completion by BP2SDM. In addition, the preparation of the GAP and GBS are also set for completion this year and are currently undergoing processes of review and improvement. The remaining activities will be introduced next year.

Supporting Sorong Selatan Forest management unit during restructuring of its forest management plan

2021 11 27 Sosec data collection Sorong Selatan mb 2

In the wake of the issuance of Law No. 11 of 2020 on Job Creation, as well as Decree of the Minister of Environment and Forestry No. 08 of 2021 on Forest Management, the Preparation of Forest Management Plans and the Utilization of Protection Forests and Production Forests, the South Sorong Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP Sorong Selatan) has taken the initiative of drawing up a revised long-term forest management plan (RPHJP) and an accompanying map. In order to encourage this initiative, FORCLIME offered its support to the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service and the KPHP Sorong Selatan during the collection of primary data in the field between October and November 2021. As a part of these efforts, a survey of social, economic and cultural conditions was carried out for a period of 11 days from 27 October until 8 November 2021. A survey of biogeophysical conditions was then subsequently carried out for a period of 18 days from 27 October until 13 November 2021.

The primary data gathered during the surveys will be used by KPHP Sorong Selatan in order to prepare a revised RPJP document. The FMU has also planned a series of follow-up activities, including focused discussion activities (FGD), public consultations, forest governance analysis and the preparation of a number of documents (RPHJP revision). One of the newest approaches being pursued in this regard will involve the RPHJP document being uploaded to the Ministry of Environment and Forestry’s website.
