FORCLIME facilitates the preparation of ecotourism design in North Kalimantan

2020 05 29 Activity Sheet Virtual Meeting with KPH TarakanSQ

The Tarakan forest management unit (KPH Tarakan) is preparing a community-based ecotourism programme in its protection forest which will apply the “payment for environmental services concept”. The proposed ecotourism site is a reservoir, Embung Binalatung, which supplies clean water for the city of Tarakan in North Kalimantan. For the purpose of ecotourism development, the KPH Tarakan, supported by FORCLIME, conducted a study on detail engineering design (DED). The results of this study were presented by the consultant on 29 May 2020 using the MS Teams application. 15 participants joined the virtual meeting representing the Province Forestry Service, KPH Tarakan and FORCLIME.

The DED provides cost estimation with the specification of the designed items, as well as the estimation work schedule. Based on the study, KPH Tarakan will prepare a proposal for the provincial government and relevant parties to develop a payment for environmental services programme, called: “Green Slipi Ecotourism Embung Binalatung".

Following up from the meeting, the consultant will finalize the DED study report based on inputs collected during the event. Afterwards, the KPH Tarakan will arrange a meeting with relevant parties to develop a public-private partnership on ecotourism business development.

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.
