GIZ Indonesia and the German Embassy visit Education Forest of the University of Ottow Geissler Papua

2022 08 13 Field visit to UOGP ry 1

GIZ through the Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME) has been working in synergy with the University of Ottow Geissler Papua (UOGP) since 2021. Activities undertaken to date include the development of a Spatial Data and Mapping Management Center, the development of the Nyei Toro Forestry Education and Training Forest (Hutan Diklat) and an internship program for UOGP students. In terms of the Spatial Data and Mapping Management Center, FORCLIME has prepared an overall concept document for the institution, undertaken an analysis of education and training requirements based on the identification of training needs, and has also examined a number of suitable training methods that should hopefully be able to increase the capacities of UOGP lecturers in the future.

In order to catch up with developments relating to this ongoing synergy, the Country Director of GIZ Indonesia, ASEAN & Timor Leste and the German Embassy, accompanied by the FORCLIME Team, visited the University of Ottow Geissler Papua in Jayapura, Papua Province on 13 August 2022. The delegation was well received by UOGP Vice Chancellor, George M. Satya, M.Sc., Ph.D., and the meeting was also attended by the Dean and Deputy Dean from the Faculty of Agriculture, Forestry and Marine Affairs (FPKK), as well as the FPKK Forestry Study Program. Also present were two representatives of the Necheibe Customary People, specifically Mr. Daniel Toto and Mrs. Orpa Nari, one of Woman Leaders of the Papuan People's Assembly of Papua Province.

Recent progress in terms of the development of the Nyei Toro Education and Training Forest includes the drawing up of a Decree of the Jayapura Regent, which gives the Education and Training Forest official legitimacy. Moreover, the UOGP team is currently preparing a document for further review by the Legal Bureau of the Jayapura Regency Regional Secretariat.

Recently, the University of Ottow Geissler through the Forestry Study Programme finished work on a management plan for the Nyei Toro Education and Training Forest as a follow-up to the Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) process which was implemented back in November 2021.

In 2022, the University of Ottow Geissler Papua and FORCLIME agreed that two students would undertake an internship at FORCLIME for a period of six months through the Independent Learning Independent Campus (Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka) scheme.

Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve women's group boosts knowledge through visit to orchid gardens in Bogor and Jakarta

2022 07 30 Facilitastion women group Lore Lindu fa 1

In an effort to encourage and motivate women's groups engaged in the orchid cultivation business, which had been in a poor condition as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve (CBLL) Coordination and Communication Forum, in collaboration with FORCLIME, conducted a study visit for the KAREBA Orchid CBL women's orchid group, which operates in the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve, from 26 - 30 July 2022. The group visited the Bogor Botanical Gardens, Gino Nursery (Parung), Uli Orchid and the Ragunan Orchid Garden. According to Dr. Sri Ningsih Mallombasang from the Faculty of Forestry at Tadulako University, the orchid group’s instructor, this programme is considered of vital importance in terms of its goal of increasing the knowledge of the women's orchid group about species, cultivation techniques, economic value to orchid networks and markets. Strengthening the capacity for cultivation and the economic value of this orchid supports the conservation of orchids and forest ecosystems in the Lore Lindu Biosphere Reserve area, as it becomes an additional income for the people who live in this area.

During this study visit, participants gained firsthand information and knowledge on the care and cultivation of orchids, including nurseries, pest control and the organization and management of greenhouses. This study visit also contributed to the introduction of the breeding network and the orchid market.

After returning from the visit, the group agreed to undergo a group restructuring process, as well as to prepare a schedule a number of maintenance and to hold regular meetings aimed at the communication of relevant information and shared experiences.

Since 2017, FORCLIME has provided assistance to women's groups that engage in the cultivation of orchids in the villages of Karunia, Rejeki and Bahagia. Various training sessions have been held during this time in the hope of increasing the capacities of women's groups in the three villages as regards the development of orchid cultivation.
