FORCLIME disseminates programme across supported villages in West Papua

2022 07 29 Sosialisasi program dengan prinsip FPIC di desa desa dukungan di Papua Barat mb 4

FORCLIME, working in conjunction with the West Papua Forestry Service, held a recent dissemination session on the social forestry and FORCLIME programme in the supported villages of Wendi and Haha, which are located in South Sorong Regency, West Papua, from 27 – 29 July 2022. The event was held in line with the principles of Free, Prior Informed Consent (FPIC).

The meeting, which was opened by the Head of Forest Development and Social Forestry for the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service, Mr. Yunus W. Krey, S.Hut., M.Sc., was attended by government representatives from the Sawiat and Seremuk sub-districts, as well as representatives from the villages of Wendi and Haha, Forest Farmers Groups (KTH) from the village of Wendi (KTH Wendi 1, KTH Wendi 2, KTH Lembah Hijau) and KTH from the village of Haha (KTH Imian, KTH Sesna, KTH Nagi).

The forest farmer groups in the two supported villages have already secured a Village Forest scheme permit, meaning that they are now allowed to seek support from other parties, in this case, FORCLIME. Through this event, farmers’ group members learned that the assistance that will be provided will not take the form of material or financial support. Instead, FORCLIME will provide support in the form of training aimed at increasing the capacities of forest farmers’ groups and developing their business potentials, including in relation to the production of non-timber forest products.

We, the Wendi Village government, are extremely grateful to the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service. There is a lot of potential here, but our human resources capacity remains limited. The hope then is that the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service and FORCLIME will be able to provide assistance,” explained the Secretary of Wendi Village, Mr. Yeremias Krimadi.

As a follow-up to this activity, farmers’ groups within the villages of Wendi and Haha, assisted by the village facilitator, drew up a number of more detailed work plans. This village facilitator has received training in the implementation of activities in the supported villages.

Sharing information on the operational progress of forest management units

2022 06 21 Sharing and Learning Session on KPH my

Working in collaboration with the Forestry Service of Central Sulawesi Province, FORCLIME held an informal meeting with all of the Heads of Central Sulawesi’s Forest Management Units (KPH) on 21 June 2022 in the city of Palu. The meeting tackled an additional agenda that related to the visits of two quiz winners during the closing workshop of FORCLIME phase 3 in December 2020. Unfortunately, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, this field trip to the FORCLIME location was only able to be held in June 2022. The two quiz winners were Mr. Maidiward (former Sub-Directorate Head of Production Forest Management Unit Arrangements at the Directorate of Production Forest Management Units) and Mr. Khulfi M. Khalwani (The Bureau of Planning at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry).

I welcomed it when FORCLIME proposed an information-sharing session during the visit of Mr. Maidward and Pak Khulfi. FMUs are thirsty for information on developments relating to the implementation of KPHs after the UUCK”, explained the Head of the Forestry Service of Central Sulawesi Province, Dr. Ir. H. Nahardi, MM., IPU, during his opening remarks.

During the meeting, several heads of forest management units discussed the obstacles and challenges that they faced in relation to the operation of FMUs, which mainly relate to human and financial resources, particularly in the wake of the changes that have been made to the duties and functions of the FMU re-garding facilitation. The meeting was also attended by two technical implementing units from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in Central Sulawesi, specifically the Center for Forest Area Consolidation (BPKH) and the National Park of Lore Lindu.

Addressing the main topic of the informal meeting, Mr. Maidiward offered an analysis that included the facilitation of funds for the development of FMUs, as specifically addressed under Minister of Environment and Forestry (LHK) Regulation No. 8 of 2021 on Forest Management and Forest Management Plans. In ad-dition, Mr. Maidiward’s presentation also addressed the role of echelon I at the Ministry of LHK in support-ing the duties and functions of FMUs, as outlined under Article 23 of Minister of Environment and Forestry Regulation. 8/Menlhk-II/2021

In the wake of this informal meeting, regular meetings of the Central Sulawesi KPH Forum are set to be reactivated after a long break during the Covid-19 pandemic. This kind of meeting is generally perceived to be extremely useful for KPH heads, who are able to share information in ways that support the tasks and functions of FMUs.

FORCLIME supports FMU Kulawi effort to strengthen Village Forest Management Institutions in Doda and Rogo villages, Central Sulawesi

2022 07 11 Coordination Meeting with Kepala Seksi of KPH Kulawi my

There are many challenges associated with implementing social forestry schemes out in the field, including in the Forest Management Unit (KPH) of Kulawi, which is located in Central Sulawesi. The village of Doda, which is one of the villages being assisted by KPH Kulawi, already has Village Forest Management Rights (Hak Pengelolaan Hutan Desa/HPHD), as issued by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. However, until now, the management of the village forest here has not been operational. In order to correct this, FORCLIME held a coordination meeting with KPH Kulawi to discuss collaborative plans aimed at strengthening the Village Forest Management Institution (Lembaga Pengelola Hutan Desa/LPHD) and developing a forest management and operationalization plan for the Doda Village Forest. Initial discussions of these plans were held on 28 June 2022 at the KPH Kulawi Office.

In order to follow up on these previous discussions, the FORCLIME team and the forestry extension staff of KPH Kulawi visited the village of Doda in order to identify potentials, opportunities and obstacles to implementing social forestry at the site level, and also to identify local champions or local community leaders who will later be invited to participate in the strengthening of the LPHD.

On 11 July 2022, FORCLIME held another coordination meeting with KPH Kulawi in order to discuss the results of the field visit and plans for the strengthening of the LPHD in the village of Doda. During the meeting, it was agreed that FORCLIME would also support the strengthening of the LPHD in the village of Rogo, which is also a target village of KPH Kulawi.

Mr. Dodi, S.Hut., M.Si., the Head of the KSDAE Protection and Community Empowerment Section at KPH Kulawi, affirmed that the main obstacle to developing an adequate village forest management regime within the villages of Doda and Rogo was limited resources, meaning that cooperation with other parties is badly needed. “GIZ has often partnered with the Central Sulawesi Provincial Forestry Service. Therefore, we hope that KPH Kulawi will also be able to engage in collaborative activities with GIZ at the site level,” Mr. Dodi explained.
