Available Positions in Kemitraan

Available positions in Kemitraan – to be based in Kalimantan
 
Program and Organizational Context
 
Kubu-Ketapang in West Kalimantan is an example of a landscape, where there is competition between productive land users and the other purposes a landscape serves. Beside numerous concessionaries that seek economic objectives, the landscape has social and environmental purposes that must be considered in coordinating objectives. Although currently most concessionaries have developed their own sustainable management plans, it is not clear that these will be adequate to achieve overarching conservation and sustainability. A high rate of deforestation in West Kalimantan will be one outcome of poor coordination though it will not be the only issue. It is clear that landscapes should not be managed by focusing on certain areas defined by administrative boundaries. Instead, a landscape should be seen holistically as one management area that consists of economic activities, local communities, natural boundaries such as watersheds and wildlife habitats.
 
The challenge in Kubu-Ketapang is that the landscape is currently managed differently depending on the policy of concessionaries. The government also has separate landscape management procedures. This fractionated approach is a problem. There does not exist a best practice for integrated or collaborative management for large landscapes that include different land users and interests. This presents an opportunity. Aside from issues related to company policies, there are many threats to sustainable landscape efforts in Kubu-Ketapang including encroachment, illegal logging, and forest clearing for oil palm plantations. To address these issues, several companies related to the pulp and paper industry in Kubu-Ketapang landscape will build a public-private coalition with the goal to establish and implement integrated sustainable landscape management. This integrated management plan will include environmental protection efforts, which will coexist alongside efforts related to business sustainability and social development.
 
The main goal of this project is to achieve sustainable landscape management best practices and to share them with others. Sustainability will include four major issues that need to be addressed: alternative livelihoods for surrounding communities, prevention of major forest fire outbreaks in concession areas, implementation of HCV, and preservation of primate habitat by forming a knowledge-based and establishing wildlife corridors.
 
This project will be conducted in two phases: The first phase will be focused on developing an integrated-forest fire prevention program and primate habitat conservation. There are four separate baseline studies needed to inform the integrated sustainable landscape management plan including: Forest Fire Prevention program, HCV area management, Primate Habitat Conservation, and Community Development. If the stakeholders are satisfied with the progress and results from the first phase then the project will continue to the second phase which will focus on developing findings from the first phase and on scaling these to address the five components. This phase is expected to be completed by March 2020.
The first phase is important to start the collaborative project between the stakeholders. It is important to build commitment and trust among the stakeholders before long-term activities can be possible. Forest fire prevention stands out as a main concern for this project because it is an extant problem for the forestry sector in West Kalimantan, especially in the Kubu-Ketapang landscape. Forest fires are a serious problem that could destroy natural and plantation forest. The identified causes are: the dry season, bad land clearing practices and slash and burn practices. In order to deal with this issue, this project will develop and implement a joint forest fire prevention program that uses a community based approach. It is expected that the communities living around and in the concession areas will work together with companies and governments to prevent and mitigate forest fires in the future.
 
In order to support the above project, Kemitraan has several positions to be based in Kalimantan close to the project.   The positions are:
