Toro village in Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve prepares documentation regarding its customary rules

2021 09 23 Common consent of the traditional regulation fa

With the ultimate goal of conserving the various customary rules and local wisdom that regulates the local community’s social life, particularly in relation to the management and protection of natural resources, Toro village and the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve Communication Forum have committed to documenting the various customary rules and local wisdom which currently only exist in the scattered memories of the village elders. In order to initiate this task, a coordination meeting was held in Toro village in the western part of Palu, Central Sulawesi on 23 September 2021. The meeting was opened by the Head of Toro village, Mr Mulyanto Dharmawan Lagimpu, and was attended by local communities.

During the meeting, participants agreed on the following:
1. Collection and extraction of information from the local community, particularly from elderly citizens who still have relevant information stored in their memories.
2. Determination of the Toro language for the documentation of customary rules and local wisdom.
3. Translation of contexts and meanings into the Indonesian language in order to facilitate wider comprehension.

After this task has been completed, the collected customary rules and local wisdom will be compiled into a guidebook that will then be published and distributed to all sub-village and village offices. It is hoped that this project will inspire younger generations to retain and preserve the knowledge of their ancestors, particularly as it relates to the management of natural resources.

The residents of Toro follow various philosophical tenets in relation to their social lives, specifically:
1. Hintuwu, which regulates relationships between people;
2. Katuwua, which regulates relationships between people and nature;
3. Petukua, which regulates relationships between people and the Creator.

As a follow-up to the evaluation workshop on the Long-Term Management Plan (RPJP) for Balai Taman Nasional (TN) Wasur for the 2013 - 2024 period, FORCLIME recently facilitated the RPJP evaluation working group to present its evaluation results to the Head of Balai TN Wasur and representatives of the Directorate of Conservation Areas at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The presentation was held on 9 September 2021 at the national park’s office in Merauke and was also conducted online.

The meeting was opened by the Head of Balai TN Wasur, Mr Yarman, before getting underway with a presentation of the evaluation results given by the RPJP evaluation working group. The evaluation results indicate the need to develop a new RPJP that will serve as a set of guidelines and offer directions to the management of Wasur National Park during the 2021 - 2030 period. During the discussion, FORCLIME representatives outlined the importance of addressing gender mainstreaming issues within the new RPJP document. Meanwhile, a representative from the Directorate of Conservation Areas, Mr. Dian Risdianto, expressed his appreciation for the evaluation process and stated his hope that the revision of the RPJP document could be completed within the next three months.

The Head of TN Wasur will form a Technical Working Group for the Development of RPJP TN Wasur for the 2021 - 2030 period and FORCLIME will continue to offer support in relation to the development of the new RPJP.

FORCLIME and KPHP Sorong Selatan synergize work plan

2021 09 07 Coordination Meeting KPHP Sorong Selatan 2

With the goal of synergizing the implementation of their 2021 work programmes, FORCLIME and the Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP) for Sorong Selatan held an online coordination meeting on 7 September 2021. During the meeting, the head of the KPHP Sorong Selatan, Mr Reynold Kesaulija, addressed the forest management unit’s seven priority programmes for 2021, two of which are being supported by FORCLIME, specifically:
- Development of a database and information system that is integrated into the maintenance of KPHP Sorong Selatan’s spatial data;
- The redesign and revision of the Long Term Forest Management Plan (RPHJP), as well as GIS/spatial-data training for the forest management unit’s staff.

Support will be provided in relation to areas that are not available within KPHP Sorong Selatan and the West Papua Provincial Forestry Service and will take into account contributions of resources from each party.

In addition, the meeting also discussed the selection of FORCLIME 4.0 pilot villages. In this regard, the head of KPHP Sorong Selatan recommended three villages in Sawiat District, specifically: Sasnek Village, Wendi Village and Lembah Hijau Village (Persiapan Village). These villages are considered to have potential, including in terms of the production of sarang semut – a multi-efficacy herbal preparation indigenous to Papua (Myrmecodia pendans), as well as patchouli (Pogostemon cablin Benth), various fruits and environmental services/ecotourism. Currently, no assistance is being offered by working partners within these villages.

The Head of KPHP Sorong Selatan, Mr Reynold Kesaulija, expressed his appreciation for the level of communication that had been maintained so far. “This meeting has been very good, thanks to FORCLIME who are always available for us and, despite the ongoing pandemic, we have still been able to communicate virtually,” explained Mr Kesaulija.
