CONSULTANT (Service Provider/Group of Trainers)
TRAINING SERIES OF GIS AND REMOTE SENSING
(code: GIS-RS West Papua)
As the world’s largest archipelago nation in area and population, Indonesia is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. With 30% of the world’s mangroves (>3 million ha) and 22 million ha of peatlands, peat and mangrove ecosystems (PME) provide adaptation and resilience capacity for vulnerable communities, including coastal protection, flood control, water quality, and food security. Indonesia’s PMEs also boast some of the highest ecosystem carbon densities (mangroves=1,023 MgCha-1 and peatlands=2,658 MgCha-1) and hence great capacity for mitigation. However, PMEs are amongst Indonesia’s most threatened ecosystems including in the project pilot Provinces North Sumatera and West Papua. The pilot provinces represent two different development stages and conservation approaches in Indonesia where the North Sumatera is more focusing on peatland restoration and the West Papua is more focusing on peat and mangrove conservation.
West Papua is one of our pilot provinces with a population of approximately 937.4 thousand people. With 9.4 million ha of forests (approximately 90% of its entire terrestrial area), West Papua is one of the ‘greenest’ provinces in all of Indonesia. The forests hold rich biodiversity and carbon stocks, including around one million ha of vital peatland and 650 thousand ha of mangrove. The health of the forests can be directly attributed to the many indigenous communities that have been sustainably managing these resources for generations. Most of these communities still live in isolated locations and rely heavily on the forest for livelihoods and subsistence (timber, fuelwood, bush food, medicinal plants, etc.), while a small number have transitioned to more intensive agricultural-based systems. This deep-rooted history and the knowledge that West Papua’s indigenous populations have in terms of forest resources and sustainable management is an incredible asset for the development. Concerning those resources, The Provincial Government declares their commitment as Sustainable Development Province.
IKI PME Project
The IKI PME Project in Indonesia is part partnership between government of Indonesia and the Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) The project focus on climate change “Mitigation, Adaptation through Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods in Indonesia’s Peat and Mangrove Ecosystems”. The project will increase climate change resilience of highly vulnerable communities and biodiversity, while substantially mitigating GHG emissions in Indonesia by accelerating large-scale conservation and effective management of PMEs.
Conservation International (CI) is the lead agency for implementing and executing the project along with partners, Wetlands International Indonesia and CIFOR. Conservation International works in partnership with stakeholders at the national and local levels to conserve nature and improve human wellbeing in Indonesia.
The project will focus on national policy, smart land use planning, improved forest management, sustainable production, and innovative finance. The project will provide technical assistance and tools for partners to make informed decisions, manage natural resources sustainably, and develop green economic pathways that will contribute significantly towards Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Commitments (NDC) as part of the Paris Climate Agreement.
The purpose of this consultancy is providing technical support, building and strengthening the capacity of local government in the West Papua Province through introducing them to the basic, intermediate, and advance level of Geographical Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS). The training should be delivered to the local government at the provincial (basic module) and the pilot level (intermediate-advance module). Target agencies at the provincial and pilot level are Forestry Agency of West Papua (Dinas Kehutanan Papua Barat), Forest Management Units (KPH), Natural Resource Conservation Agency of West Papua (BBKSDA Papua Barat), and Cendrawasih Bay National Park (Taman Nasional Teluk Cendrawasih). The idea is that, from the beginning, they can construct and maintain spatial database system, and perform spatial analysis.
