2022 05 19 Koordinasi dengan Dinas Kehutanan Provinsi Papua Barat untuk Perkembangan Program ny 1

In order to coordinate regarding developments and future programme plans, the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service and FORCLIME held a coordination meeting on 19 May 2022 at the Forestry Service meeting room in Manokwari, West Papua. The meeting, which was opened by the Head of the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service, Ir. Runaweri F.H, MM., discussed the 2022 work plan, which includes the following initiatives:

  • Coaching clinic for the preparation of forest management plan (RPHJP) for forest management units (KPH) in West Papua Province. FORCLIME support will be provided to existing KPHs in working areas, namely KPHP Sorong and KPHL Tambrauw. It should be noted that this coaching clinic has not been organised as a one-time meeting but is an ongoing process and involves mentoring being carried out through several workshops. The KHP coaching clinic will be facilitated by the Faculty of Forestry at the University of Papua, with speakers and mentors being drawn from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) and its Forestry Technical Implementation Unit at the provincial level.
  • Training on Geospatial Information System (GIS) for KPH staff in West Papua Province will be carried out in collaboration with the Faculty of Forestry at the University of Papua.
  • The mentoring of Forest Farmers Groups (KTH) will be implemented by facilitators in FORCLIME supported villages, specifically the villages of Haha, Wendi in South Sorong KPHP, Emmaus and Bikar in Tambrauw KPHL, as well as customary forest initiatives in West Papua.
  • Leadership Training for forest management unit heads/managers in West Papua Province.

The coordination meeting also discussed the need to establish a KPH Forum in West Papua Province as a medium for communication and as a place to voice KPH requirements and the sharing of knowledge. This KPH forum can be formed if a new KPH organizational structure is first put in place.

On this occasion, FORCLIME Programme Director, Mr. Georg Buchholz, presented a Letter of Designation of Village Facilitator, who will be responsible for facilitating activities within FORCLIME supported villages.

FORCLIME disseminates programmes in Babrongko, Papua in Line with FPIC principles

2022 05 21 Sosialisasi kampung kampung Babrongko tr 3

In order to inaugurate activities in the supported village of Babrongko, Jayapura Regency, Papua, the Papua Provincial Forestry and Environment Service (Dinas KLH), in conjunction with FORCLIME, held an event on 21 May 2022 aimed at the dissemination of information about the joint work programmes that will be undertaken within the village.

The event was organised in line with the principle of Free, Prior Informed Consent (FPIC). Through this approach, information was clearly communicated to the community from the earliest possible stage as regards the implementation of programmes aimed at offering support for the development of forest farmer groups, with a particular focus on community capacity building. The event saw involvement from interested parties in the village, including traditional leaders (Ondofolo and tribal chiefs), the village government, women’s leaders and forest farmer groups. This outreach activity also saw participation from the Head of the Papua Province Forestry and Environment Service, Mr. Jan Jap L. Ormuseray.

The dissemination event represented the first stage towards securing approval from the community and other related parties and aimed to ensure that the community was presented with comprehensive information on the various programmes that will be implemented. Through this process, local communities can give voice to their opinions and ultimately decide whether to accept or reject certain initiatives and programmes.

In his speech, the Head of the Provincial Forestry and Environmental Service (Dinas KLH) explained that the FPIC process was being implemented in order to respect the rights of customary peoples as partners of the Dinas KLH in programmes that are being supported by FORCLIME.

"FORCLIME formulates concepts and efforts aimed at increasing community capacity and initiates programmes by considering the potential of the relevant community before it addresses any new programmes," explained the traditional leader of Babrongko village, Ramses Wally, after listening to the explanation presented by Dinas KLH and FORCLIME.

The agroforestry women's group also expressed its support for FORCLIME programmes and its hope that capacity-building activities will take existing women's groups into account so that they will also be able to increase their capacities in relation to the management of NTFPs.

During the event, the selected community facilitator for and citizen of the village of Babrongko, Mr Septinus Wally, was also introduced.

A follow-up FGD to this event has been planned and will be attended by Babrongko’s forest farmer groups.
