Papua’s Forestry and Environment Service coordinates with FORCLIME during preparations for the implementation of priority programmes in 2022

20220521 Coordination meeting with KPHP21 dan 231

In order to prepare for the implementation of priority programmes in conjunction with FORCLIME, the Papua Forestry and Environment Service (Dinas KLH) held a coordination meeting with FORCLIME on 22 May 2022 in the meeting room of the XXI Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP XXI) office in Sarmi Regency, Papua Province. The meeting was opened by the Head of Planning for Dinas KLH, Dr. Estiko Tri Wiradyo, SH. M.Sc. and was also attended by representatives from KPHP XXI Mamberamo-Sarmi and KPHP XXIII Sarmi.

During his opening address, Dr. Estiko explained that, to date, support for forest management units (KPH) has prioritized the KPH Model, including within the Biak Numfor protected forest (KPHL Biak Numfor). Working in conjunction with FORCLIME, support for the strengthening of FMUs is also now set to be implemented within KPHP XXI and KPHP XXIII. At both of these KPHPs, FORCLIME will offer technical assistance in an effort to improve overall governance, in addition to supporting the development of non-timber forest products (NTFPs). Ultimately, the hope is that the two KPHPs will become examples capable of inspiring the whole of north Papua.

During his presentation, the Acting Head of KPHP XXIII Sarmi, Henoch Kende, explained that in addition to terrestrial areas, the KPHP XXIII area also encompasses the working areas of five islands that have ecotourism potential as fishing spots and turtle nesting locations. Other potential areas of development include eco-tourism within the locations of the area’s waterfalls, the production of Trigona honey and the development of NTFPs such as agarwood leaves, which are used to make agarwood tea. In addition, this area boasts a high level of forest product utilization, including damar and merbau timbers. The area’s wildlife parks (TSL), which are home to many species of bird, also have significant potential but require further data collection, while KPHP XXIII also has potential as a source of agarwood nurseries.

The head of the KPHP Unit XXI planning section at Mamberamo-Sarmi, Debora Sawen, explained during her presentation that KPHP XXI had significant NTFP potential, specifically in terms of red fruit oil and processed sago cookies.
In addition, the area also boasts a number of ecotourism waterfalls and hot springs, however, these will require significant development through advertising and ecotourism design in order to transform them into tourist attractions.

FORCLIME is set to offer various types of support, including the following:
- Technical guidance relating to the preparation of forest management plans (RPHJP).
- A bio-geophysical study of the area will be implemented in stages in line with the availability of FORCLIME funds.
- Leadership training will be offered at the management level at KPH and the Dinas KLH Office.
- Digital marketing training will be offered in an effort to strengthen the Forestry Creative Gallery so that it will be able to support the sale of non-timber forest products from KPHP XXI and KPHP XXIII, which are currently being marketed through the gallery.
- Preparation of a master plan for the development of ecotourism within the Sarmi area.

FORCLIME support, particularly the study of biodiversity and KPHP XXI potential, should prove very useful during planning processes for KPHP XXIII and will mean that the preparation of RPHJP documents can be undertaken based on the existing potential,” explained Henoch Kende, Acting Head of KPHP XXIII.

Sub-WG Gender at DG of Human Resources Extension and Development Prepare Work Plan for 2022

2022 05 30 Rapat Koordinasi Penyusunan Rencana Kerja Sub Pokja Gender BP2SDM em

For the last few years, the Directorate-General of Human Resources Extension and Development (Badan Penyuluhan dan Pengembangan Sumber Daya Manusia - BP2SDM) at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry has stood by its firm commitment to developing gender mainstreaming programmes (pengarusutamaan gender-PUG). This commitment has been realized through joint activities with FORCLIME since 2018.

In order to strengthen Gender Mainstreaming (PUG) efforts at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), the Gender Sub-Working Group held a recent meeting with FORCLIME in order to discuss a workplan for 2022. The meeting was held online on 30 May 2022 and was attended by 52 participants from various working units within BP2SDM, as well as from FORCLIME and the MoEF Gender Working Group.

The plans that will be implemented in 2022 break down as follows:
1. Validation of the Criteria and Indicators for Gender Responsive Education and Training Institutions.
2. Preparation of Gender Analysis Pathways and a Gender Budget Statement for the 2023 Work Plan for working units under BP2SDM.
3. Preparation of a lessons-learned book based on the experiences of BP2SDM staff (extensions, lecturers, etc.) in relation to gender mainstreaming through the use of the storytelling method.
4. Preparation of a Gender Mainstreaming Pocket Book for Forestry and Environmental Extension Officers.
5. Development of Criteria and Indicators for Gender Responsivity for Forestry Vocational High Schools.
6. Renewal of Decree of the BP2SDM Gender Sub-Working Group Team.

Through these efforts, the PUG programmes at the MoEF are expected, particularly at BP2SDM, to become firmer and more institutionalized.

The cooperation between the Gender Sub-Working Group and FORCLIME has been going on for a long time. We hope that FORCLIME's support will continue so that PUG activities at BP2SDM will become more solid,” explained Agus Setiawan (Sub-Pokja Gender of BP2SDM).

FORCLIME and Forestry and Environment Service of Papua Province coordinate to develop joint work programme in supported village

2022 05 23 Coordination with DKLH Papua and sign Risalah diskusi untuk kampung supported tr

During the recent visit of the FORCLIME Programme Director to Tanah Papua, attending a coordination meeting with the Papua Forestry and Environment Service (Dinas KLH) was on the agenda. The meeting chaired by the Head of the Forestry and Environment Service, Mr Jan Jap L. Ormuseray, S.H., M.Sc., and was held on 23 May 2022 in the Dinas KLH meeting room in Jayapura, Papua Province.

The meeting discussed strategic programmes that will be implemented by Dinas KLH and FORCLIME in the jointly determined supported village, namely Babrongko.

The work programmes were simultaneously prepared based on the potential of the village, as determined during a recent field visit. The village of Babrongko has potential in ecotourism and non-timber forest products (NTFPs), including Kombow (a basic material used for carving, painting bark and sculptures). Currently, some 5 hectares of Kombow trees originally planted as part of the Dinas KLH planting programme are ready to be harvested. Moreover, the community already has the ability to produce handicrafts from this important tree. However, these products need to be further refined in order to achieve greater economic value and to increase market demand. For this reason, it will be necessary to increase the capacity of the craftsman group. Kampung Babrongko is also famous for the abundant potential of its tilapia fish. In addition to being sold as fresh fish, tilapia can be processed into other products that are more durable, including shredded tilapia. Meanwhile, Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) Unit XXIII also has ecotourism potential in relation to special interest tourism, including fishing and the observation of sea turtle nesting. As a result, expert support is needed to create successful ecotourism and FORCLIME is an integral part of this plan.

During the recent coordination meeting, FORCLIME confirmed its support for various activities, including the following:

  • Support for KPHP XXIII, in addition to capacity building and support for bio-geophysical studies relating to the preparation of forest management plan documents (RPHJP). FORCLIME is also supporting the preparation of an ecotourism master plan through the provision of needed experts.
  • Support for the sale of community products through the KPH Gallery and through digital marketing training, as well as leadership training at the management level through the Forest Management Unit (KPH) and KPH Gallery.

Other topics that were also discussed at the meeting and that will require support from FORCLIME included Papua’s hosting of the Green Climate Fund Task Force (GCFTF) 2023, strengthening the capacity of the REDD+ Working Group, development of NTFPs (particularly in relation to food safety certification) and the utilization of sago processing waste in relation to sago mushroom farming.

In his speech, the Head of the Dinas KLH affirmed that the most important programme involved increasing the capacities of the human resources available to the community, so that the potentials around them can be developed.

FORCLIME's support for Dinas KLH is highly strategic because FORCLIME's programmes are in line with programmes being run by Dinas KLH and are also consistent with the Vision and Mission of the Governor of Papua,” explained Mr. Jan Jap L. Ormuseray, S.H, M.Sc., Head of the Dinas KLH for Papua Province.

During the coordination meeting, it was also agreed that a Free, Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) process should be implemented in the assisted village in the near future.
