Coordination with Cenderawasih University as part of internship preparations at FORCLIME

2022 05 23 Coordination Meetings With FMIPA Universitas Cenderawasih tr 2

In an effort to organize and prepare for the implementation of internships and the thematic community service programme (KKN), the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA) at Cenderawasih University and FORCLIME held a coordination meeting on 23 May 2022 in the FMIPA Meeting Room at the Cenderawasih University (Uncen) Campus in Jayapura, Papua. The meeting was chaired by the Dean of the FMIPA, Dr. Dirk Runtoboi, M.Kes., and was also attended by FORCLIME’s Programme Director.

The meeting got underway with a presentation that was made by two FMIPA students, Sonia Kwano and Mia Esti Asmuruf, who participated in FORCLIME’s internship programme for six months, which is the equivalent of 20 semester credit units (SKS) for courses that relate to internship materials at FORCLIME.

During the presentation, the learning materials utilized during the internship programme were discussed, including the Free, Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) process; participatory mapping; the forest planning process through the preparation of the Long Term Management Plan (RPJP) for conservation areas; the identification of villages that will receive FORCLIME support; and administrative processes that refer to the GIZ standard. In addition, Sonia and Mia also gained knowledge of mapping techniques under the supervision of a GIS Advisor.

"I am very proud because, through the internship programme at FORCLIME, students are able to improve their soft skills and gain other experiences that cannot be obtained through campus learning," explained Dr. Dirk Runtoboi, M.Kes, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Cenderawasih University.

Meanwhile, Octalia Togibasa, PhD., MSi., Assistant Dean 1 of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, explained during the discussion that this kind of internship programme needs to be continued as it offers significant support to the campus, particularly in terms of developing the Independent Learning-Independence Campus model (MBKM).

FORCLIME’s programme director, George Buchholz offered an assurance that FORCLIME would continue to support both the internship programme and the thematic community service programme. Moreover, in 2022, FORCLIME is set to welcome three intern students, as well as a group of students who will engage in thematic KKN with a focus on implementing activities in FORCLIME-supported villages. The internship and KKN programme will be held in August 2022 and thus preparations will commence as soon as possible.

In addition to Cenderawasih University, the FORCLIME internship programme will also be implemented in conjunction with Ottow Geissler University Papua and Musamus University Merauke.

In order to prepare the parties concerned for the implementation of priority programmes during 2022, the University of Ottow Geissler and FORCLIME held a coordination meeting on 24 May 2022 in the Rectorate Meeting Room of the University of Ottow Geissler in Jayapura, Papua. The meeting was opened by the Chancellor of the University of Ottow Geissler Papua (UOGP), Mr Jerry Sawai, M.Sc., PhD. and discussed the development of a number of jointly initiated programmes, including the following:

  • Development of a GIS laboratory as a center of excellence at the University of Ottow Geissler Papua. The location for the GIS laboratory has already been prepared, while the lab’s institutional structure will involve all of the university’s faculties.
  • The Nyei Toro Educational Forest, an educational forest management institutional structure that will involve UOGP, local government and the Necheibe customary community, is currently being prepared.
  • FORCLIME will admit two students onto its 2022 internship programme through a selection process. This internship programme will be integrated through the independent campus method (Merdeka Belajar, Kampus Merdeka (MBKM).
  • UOGP has created a students’ association organization (Sylva UOGP) that is set to become a member of the International Forestry Students’ Association (IFSA). All of the membership requirements have already been met in this regard, while a registration application has already been submitted and is currently being processed.

FORCLIME is highly strategic programme and supports programme development at the University of Ottow Geissler Papua through capacity building,” explained Vice Chancellor I, George M. Satya, M.Sc., PhD.

Papua’s Forestry and Environment Service coordinates with FORCLIME during preparations for the implementation of priority programmes in 2022

20220521 Coordination meeting with KPHP21 dan 231

In order to prepare for the implementation of priority programmes in conjunction with FORCLIME, the Papua Forestry and Environment Service (Dinas KLH) held a coordination meeting with FORCLIME on 22 May 2022 in the meeting room of the XXI Production Forest Management Unit (KPHP XXI) office in Sarmi Regency, Papua Province. The meeting was opened by the Head of Planning for Dinas KLH, Dr. Estiko Tri Wiradyo, SH. M.Sc. and was also attended by representatives from KPHP XXI Mamberamo-Sarmi and KPHP XXIII Sarmi.

During his opening address, Dr. Estiko explained that, to date, support for forest management units (KPH) has prioritized the KPH Model, including within the Biak Numfor protected forest (KPHL Biak Numfor). Working in conjunction with FORCLIME, support for the strengthening of FMUs is also now set to be implemented within KPHP XXI and KPHP XXIII. At both of these KPHPs, FORCLIME will offer technical assistance in an effort to improve overall governance, in addition to supporting the development of non-timber forest products (NTFPs). Ultimately, the hope is that the two KPHPs will become examples capable of inspiring the whole of north Papua.

During his presentation, the Acting Head of KPHP XXIII Sarmi, Henoch Kende, explained that in addition to terrestrial areas, the KPHP XXIII area also encompasses the working areas of five islands that have ecotourism potential as fishing spots and turtle nesting locations. Other potential areas of development include eco-tourism within the locations of the area’s waterfalls, the production of Trigona honey and the development of NTFPs such as agarwood leaves, which are used to make agarwood tea. In addition, this area boasts a high level of forest product utilization, including damar and merbau timbers. The area’s wildlife parks (TSL), which are home to many species of bird, also have significant potential but require further data collection, while KPHP XXIII also has potential as a source of agarwood nurseries.

The head of the KPHP Unit XXI planning section at Mamberamo-Sarmi, Debora Sawen, explained during her presentation that KPHP XXI had significant NTFP potential, specifically in terms of red fruit oil and processed sago cookies.
In addition, the area also boasts a number of ecotourism waterfalls and hot springs, however, these will require significant development through advertising and ecotourism design in order to transform them into tourist attractions.

FORCLIME is set to offer various types of support, including the following:
- Technical guidance relating to the preparation of forest management plans (RPHJP).
- A bio-geophysical study of the area will be implemented in stages in line with the availability of FORCLIME funds.
- Leadership training will be offered at the management level at KPH and the Dinas KLH Office.
- Digital marketing training will be offered in an effort to strengthen the Forestry Creative Gallery so that it will be able to support the sale of non-timber forest products from KPHP XXI and KPHP XXIII, which are currently being marketed through the gallery.
- Preparation of a master plan for the development of ecotourism within the Sarmi area.

FORCLIME support, particularly the study of biodiversity and KPHP XXI potential, should prove very useful during planning processes for KPHP XXIII and will mean that the preparation of RPHJP documents can be undertaken based on the existing potential,” explained Henoch Kende, Acting Head of KPHP XXIII.
