Team building workshop for Forest Programmes II and III on Lombok, Indonesia

Created by Zihni Erencin |

The support to sustainable forest management, the rehabilitation of degraded forest areas, the promotion of social forestry and agroforestry systems, as well as the protection of biodiversity and the habitats of critically endangered key species are important goals of the Indonesian government. The Federal Government of Germany, through KfW Development Bank, supports the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forests (KLHK) in implementing these targets through six forest programmes and thus supports initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation measures to climate change (REDD+).

AHT GROUP GmbH together with its consortium partner PT Hatfield Indonesia (PTHI) have been implementing Forestry Programme 2 (FP-II) – Sumatra - on behalf of the Directorate of Soil and Water Conservation (KTA) since .2016. Since January 2017, we also implemented Forest Programme 3 (FP-III) – Sulawesi - on behalf of the Directorate of Nature Conservation Management and Information (PIKA). Since both projects are nearing their end, the partner institutions are increasingly taking over the tasks of project management and implementation as part of the exit strategy.

To further promote synergies in achieving the targets of both projects, a workshop was held on Lombok from September 18th to 21st, 2022 by AHT and PTHI together with the two Project Executing Agencies (PEA), in which the teams jointly developed and discussed

  • "Success stories" and "Best Practices" developed in the projects;
  • Additional challenges in project implementation;
  • Future goals and visions after the end of the project;
  • Strategies to ensure the sustainability of the project successes achieved.

The two teams have explicitly expressed their wish to further intensify the cooperation and exchange of information between the two FPs in the future. To promote joint team building including the two PEAs, the working sessions were complemented by a leisure programme including rafting and a visit to a traditional village. Common meals, karaoke, and lively discussions in mixed groups completed this successful and memorable teambuilding experience.
