Sharing knowledge: Study results on land certification within the biosphere reserve areas in West Kalimantan and Central Sulawesi

2020 06 03 webinar land certification for news

Land tenure and legality are key issues to achieve jurisdictional sustainability within the biosphere reserve area. Therefore, the Indonesia-German bilateral programme, Forests and Climate Change (FORCLIME) and Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains (SASCI) conducted studies on the current status of land certification in the biosphere reserve, to identify existing bottlenecks, and potential ways for improvement. The studies were carried out in the Biosphere Reserves of Betung Kerihun Danau Sentarum (Kapuas Hulu-West Kalimantan) and Lore Lindu (Central Sulawesi) in 2019. For the purpose of sharing knowledge, FORCLIME organized a webinar to present the study results on 3 June 2020 via MS Teams application. Resource persons of the event were Rikardo Simarmata (natural resources law expert) who conducted the study in Kapuas Hulu, and Dahniar Andriani (customary law expert) who conducted the study in Central Sulawesi. 80 participants joined the webinar representing the Ministry of Environment and Forestry; local governments, NGOs, academics from West Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi, North Kalimantan, Papua, also, other Indonesia-German bilateral programmes operating in East Kalimantan. Additionally, farmer groups from North Kalimantan were also invited to join the webinar. From the discussion session, participants gained knowledge and information on the current status and challenges related to land certification.
