GAP Master Trainers SNV

A. Background

SNV is a partner in the Kemitraan Kesejatheraan Hijau (KeHIJAU) Berbak
Partnership - Green Prosperity Project that is funded by the Millennium
Challenge Account-Indonesia. The goal of KeHIJAU Berbak and Muaro Jambi is
to increase household incomes and reduce GHG emissions from deforestation
and peatland degradation through inclusive low carbon economic growth in the
Berbak landscape and priority palm oil areas in Muaro Jambi. SNV is
particularly engaged in supporting Component 3: Private Sector Commitment
and Action 

The private sector component aims to ensure that companies operating in the
landscape understand the sustainability context and apply relevant policies
and practices. This will be achieved by four outputs: (i) Sustainability
assessment of oil palm and HPH concessions on peatland, (ii) Incentivizing
palm oil mills and timber concessions to adopt sustainability standards,
(iii) Regular audits of company performance by local NGOs working in
partnership with government and private sector, and (iv) The use of Palm Oil
Mill Effluent (POME) for renewable energy.

SNV is looking for a consultant that could support the project team in two
specific areas: 

* Setting up the infrastructure required to manage and implement the
project on scope, on time, on budget and delivering outcomes fulfilling
donor requirements;

* Revises and simplifies the training products developed for palm
oil and rubber producers; 

B. Activities and deliverables

In order to avoid agricultural expansion into forest areas, systematic
change in the production systems has to be induced. In order to provide
assistance and incentives to smallholders to make a transition to more
sustainable production systems, SNV has developed a Better Management
Practices training programme. The programme focuses on strengthening
smallholder knowledge and capacity to increase yields and incomes while
creating awareness on important ecosystem services and functions and
guidance on minimizing negative environmental impacts. Participants receive
training on agronomy, institutional development, internal control systems,
environmental management and optimizing use of agricultural waste for energy
production. We strive to enhance farmer awareness about their environmental
impact and the value of ecosystem services 

To maximize efficiency and impact of trainings on GAP and environmental
awareness, we work through cooperatives or farmer groups. Organising
smallholders in groups is essential to have impact and create economies of
scale and facilitate collaboration between smallholders and companies
further downstream. It also enables more effective communication on standard
operating procedures and allows to work towards group certification.
