FORCLIME facilitates workshop to evaluate the 2014-2023 Wasur National Park management plan

2021 08 30 Evaluasi RPJP TN Wasur periode 2014 2029 1

Following up on the previous coordination meeting of the working group on the evaluation of the National Park of Wasur’s Long-Term Management Plan (RPJP), FORCLIME facilitated a recent workshop in order to evaluate the national park’s current management plan. The workshop was held online on 30 August at the national park’s office in Merauke and was opened by the head of the national park, Mr. Yarman. During the meeting, the results of field monitoring efforts and evaluations of achievement indicators under the programmes implemented by TN Wasur were discussed. In addition, the workshop participants also addressed the importance of developing a new RPJP due to changes in TN Wasur’s management zones, differences in area and the fact that the current RPJP report outline does not refer to the most recent provisions, meaning that adjustments are now required.

As a follow-up, the technical team will prepare a final report on the results of the evaluation of the national park’s RPJP for the 2014 - 2023 period and send a copy to the Head of TN Wasur to be forwarded to the Directorate of Conservation Areas at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK).

“Support from FORCLIME has been very good and meant that the RPJP evaluation workshop could go ahead. This activity is a priority programme that must be completed in 2021 and is also being prioritised by the Directorate of Conservation Areas at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry,” explained Mr Yarman.

Coordination initiated with Manokwari conservation agency to select locations for conservation-based health services in West Papua

2021 08 23 Coord meeting between FORCLIME ASRI and BBKSDA 2

With the goal of preparing a feasibility study for the conservation-based health service programme in West Papua, an online coordination meeting between FORCLIME, the Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BBKSDA) in Manokwari and the ASRI Foundation was held on 27 August 2021. The meeting aimed to solicit input from the BBKSDA in relation to potential pilot villages for the conducting of feasibility study over four months from October 2021 to January 2022.

As discussed previously, Kabupaten Tambrauw has already been selected as a location for the implementation of the feasibility study. One of the reasons for this is the presence of nature reserves in the area, specifically: Pengunungan Tambrauw Utara and Pegunungan Tambrauw Selatan, both of which fall under the administration of the BBKSDA Manokwari. Given that the programme is set to integrate health services into forest conservation efforts, Kabupaten Tambrauw was ultimately deemed a suitable location in which to implement it.

The feasibility study will involve students from the University of Papua who participate the internship programme at FORCLIME. While the internship progamme at FORCLIME is under recruitment process.
