As a follow-up to the evaluation workshop on the Long-Term Management Plan (RPJP) for Balai Taman Nasional (TN) Wasur for the 2013 - 2024 period, FORCLIME recently facilitated the RPJP evaluation working group to present its evaluation results to the Head of Balai TN Wasur and representatives of the Directorate of Conservation Areas at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The presentation was held on 9 September 2021 at the national park’s office in Merauke and was also conducted online.

The meeting was opened by the Head of Balai TN Wasur, Mr Yarman, before getting underway with a presentation of the evaluation results given by the RPJP evaluation working group. The evaluation results indicate the need to develop a new RPJP that will serve as a set of guidelines and offer directions to the management of Wasur National Park during the 2021 - 2030 period. During the discussion, FORCLIME representatives outlined the importance of addressing gender mainstreaming issues within the new RPJP document. Meanwhile, a representative from the Directorate of Conservation Areas, Mr. Dian Risdianto, expressed his appreciation for the evaluation process and stated his hope that the revision of the RPJP document could be completed within the next three months.

The Head of TN Wasur will form a Technical Working Group for the Development of RPJP TN Wasur for the 2021 - 2030 period and FORCLIME will continue to offer support in relation to the development of the new RPJP.

FORCLIME and KPHP Sorong Selatan synergize work plan

2021 09 07 Coordination Meeting KPHP Sorong Selatan 2

With the goal of synergizing the implementation of their 2021 work programmes, FORCLIME and the Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) for Sorong Selatan held an online coordination meeting on 7 September 2021. During the meeting, the head of the KPHP Sorong Selatan, Mr Reynold Kesaulija, addressed the forest management unit’s seven priority programmes for 2021, two of which are being supported by FORCLIME, specifically:
- Development of a database and information system that is integrated into the maintenance of KPHP Sorong Selatan’s spatial data;
- The redesign and revision of the Long Term Forest Management Plan (RPHJP), as well as GIS/spatial-data training for the forest management unit’s staff.

Support will be provided in relation to areas that are not available within KPHP Sorong Selatan and the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service and will take into account contributions of resources from each party.

In addition, the meeting also discussed the selection of FORCLIME 4.0 pilot villages. In this regard, the head of KPHP Sorong Selatan recommended three villages in Sawiat District, specifically: Sasnek Village, Wendi Village and Lembah Hijau Village (Persiapan Village). These villages are considered to have potential, including in terms of the production of sarang semut – a multi-efficacy herbal preparation indigenous to Papua (Myrmecodia pendans), as well as patchouli (Pogostemon cablin Benth), various fruits and environmental services/ecotourism. Currently, no assistance is being offered by working partners within these villages.

The Head of KPHP Sorong Selatan, Mr Reynold Kesaulija, expressed his appreciation for the level of communication that had been maintained so far. “This meeting has been very good, thanks to FORCLIME who are always available for us and, despite the ongoing pandemic, we have still been able to communicate virtually,” explained Mr Kesaulija.

In an effort to solicit input as regards the identification of locations suitable for pilot villages for the implementation of various activities, FORCLIME held an online coordination meeting with the Wasur Lestari Foundation on September 9, 2021. The Wasur Lestari Foundation has gained considerable experience in the implementation of community empowerment-related activities in and around the Wasur National Park. The Wasur Lestari Foundation is a partner of the Wasur National Park Office and aims to strengthen community empowerment programmes around the national park. Knowledge and experience gained by the Wasur Lestari Foundation, including in relation to the utilization of non-timber forest products (NTFPs), will be used as a reference during the establishment of the pilot villages.

“Facilitating communities in the development of NTFPs is seen as vital and thus the support of all relevant parties, including FORCLIME, is being sought,” said Paschalina Rahwarin, Director of the Wasur Lestari Foundation.

The Wasur National Park is located in Merauke Regency within the southeastern part of Papua Province. This national park comprises a nature conservation area with an extremely high level of biodiversity, including 403 bird species, 74 of which are endemic to Papua and 114 of which are categorized as protected species.
