Indonesia’s forests are the lungs of the world. This is not only a blessing for us, but also for wildlife, including the orangutan [Pongo]. Three sub-species of the Bornean orangutan have been identified, namely Pongo Pygmaeus Pygmaeus found in northwest Borneo, Pongo Pygmaeus Wurmbii in central Borneo, and Pongo Pygmaeus Morio in northeast Borneo. All sub-species of the Bornean orangutan are endangered species and are fully protected by Indonesian legislation. This species is classified by CITES as a species prohibited for international commercial trade because it is very vulnerable to extinction.
The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS) is an Indonesian non-profit organization founded by Dr Willie Smits in 1991 and dedicated to the conservation of the endangered Bornean orangutan and its habitat. In carrying out its activities, The BOS Foundation manages orangutan rescue, rehabilitation and reintroduction programs in East and Central Kalimantan in collaboration with local communities, the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry and international partner organizations.
To strengthen the knowledge and ability of program staff in carrying out its programs, the BOS Foundation conducted training on 2 topics:
- Sustainable Livelihood (SL) Strategy and Project Cycle Management (PCM)
- Strategic Planning (SP), Project Cycle Management (PCM) and Organizational Performance Management (OPM)
CIRCLE Indonesia was engaged by the BOS Foundation to carry out the two trainings, which were carried out separately. Batch 1 training for the theme of Sustainable Livelihood (SL) Strategy and Project Cycle Management (PCM) was held on 17-19 March 2021 in Palangkaraya.
It is hoped that after participating in the SL Strategy and PCM training, trainees will be able to:
- Understand the concepts and principles of the Sustainable Livelihood Framework and Project Cycle Management
- Design project activities at the community level efficiently and effectively in accordance with the concepts and principles of the PCM and SL Framework
- Prepare a good monitoring report on project activities.
In this three-day training, participants learn and explore several topics, namely:
- Understand the basics of PCM
- Understand the SL Approach
- Project assessment using the SL Approach
- Problem analysis based on SL approach
- SL program implementation management
- Formulation of SL program objectives and indicators
- SL program monitoring
- Evaluation and Impact Assessment for the SL program
This training was attended by Program Staff and Community Development Coordinators from Mawas, Samboja Lestari and RHOI as well as staff representatives of the Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park (TNBBBR), consisting of 6 female participants and 14 male participants.
