Developing the Landscape/Seascape Four Year Strategic Plan for GEF SGP Phase-6 Project in Nusa Penida (Bali), Semau (NTT), Wakatobi (Southeast Sulawesi), and Nantu (Gorontalo)
Developing the Landscape/Seascape Four Year Strategic Plan for GEF SGP Phase-6 Project in Nusa Penida (Bali), Semau (NTT), Wakatobi (Southeast Sulawesi), and Nantu (Gorontalo)
A.1.1 Background
The GEF SGP Indonesia have been providing support for community initiated movements in natural
resource governance and environmental protection efforts in Indonesia, including in conserving
biodiversity, mitigating the impacts of climate change, halting the land degradation, and reducing
pollution of international waters. These supports have been ongoing for more than two decades
where it have involved collaboration with numbers of community-based organizations and their
supporting stakeholders. The programme have also enabled number of strategic regional, and
landscape/seascape community-based initiatives.
In line with the priority of GEF SGP Indonesia to support communities with the severe impact of
climate change, the programme chooses to focus its support to small islands and forested landscape
due to its potential for development in key sectors such as non-timber forest products and tourism,
despite of their vulnerable state. It is in the main aim of the programme to increase the resilience of
community living in these islands. GEF SGP Indonesia, within its discussion with various experience in
the country, believes that collective action by local and indigenous communities in partnership with
civil society organizations (CSOs) offers significant potential to maintain and strengthen the resilience
of socio-ecological systems in the rural landscapes. The creation of these initiatives for intervention,
particularly within the context of land and sea-based sustainable production systems and
enterprises, is believed to support minimize the natural resources degradation and loss of resilience.
This new focus has been well outlined in the recent issuance of Project Document (Prodoc) by UNDP
as the GEF Implementing Agency in partnering with the GEF SGP Indonesia Secretariat. The
document presents the four-year strategy to implement the full-size programme of Sixth Operational
Phase of the GEF SGP Indonesia to address the drivers of natural resources degradation in the
selected areas of three coastal and marine landscapes and one forested landscape – 1) Nusa Penida,
an island southeast of Bali; 2) Wakatobi, an acronym of four main islands (Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa,
Tomia, and Binongko) that together form the Wakatobi National Park; and 3) Semau, a large island
in the Kupang District, East Nusa Tenggara Province, which faces resiliency challenges that are highly
representative of the region, and which was therefore previously chosen for the COMDEKS Country
Programme in Indonesia - as well as 4) a forested landscape in and around the Nantu-Boliyohuto
Wildlife Refuge, a mountainous area in Gorontalo province on the island of Sulawesi.
A.1.2 Objectives
The main objective of this proposal is to provide technical support for GEF SGP Indonesia Secretariat
to ensure the effective and sustainable delivery of the four-year strategy of GEF SGP Indonesia OP-6.
Particularly, the objectives include: (i) to develop indicators of resilience and to conduct its
respective baseline study; (ii) to assess and provide recommendation for workplan and logframe of
GEF SGP Indonesia OP-6, and to assist its implementation; (iii) to assess and provide
recommendation for GEF tracking tools; (iv) to conduct stakeholders consultations and ex-post
project studies for each targeted area to ensure the effective buy in from relevant stakeholders.

Project Characteristics and Results
Gender Focus
Learning how role distribution among family members at villagers’ household in the four sites will bring us to better understanding about their perspective in gender. There are two types of gender roles that should be considered in the strategic plan: (i) ownership of assets; and (ii) managing household resources. As we learn from the local cultures, there is kind of similar condition in Semau Island and Nusa Penida where the patriarchal pattern being practised. The ownership of important assets such as land are still in the hand of men. Daughters and wives have no access to the ownership of land. Recently in Nusa Penida there are some progressive actions from few fathers to grant their daughters land and certified them on the daughters’names. On the other hand the authority of managing the food supply for family are in women’s hands. In the other two sites, Gorontalo and Wakatobi, the ownership of land is quite fair between women and men. The majority of population are moslem so they follow state regulation or Islam’s regulation on the rights of women and men in distributing assets. Managing the resources usually becomes family business in rural areas. All members of family will be participated. As fishery and agriculture community, there are particular division of roles in the family. The mothers who usually are responsible for the food and water supply in the house with help by the children. We can find in Semau or Nusa Penida where in major households there is forbidden for men to take the staple food from the storage because it is believed will cause bad luck. The division of job are also quite clear in farming works from the preparation phase until after-harvest phase. In fishing activities, father and son go to the sea, and mother and daughter supporting their supply needs for sailing and waiting the men came from the sea to help to sell the fish. This project will see these facts as important information to start the project. The approachment we conduct will consider not only the role of adult women and men but also younger people. We are going to dig information from as many as voices representing the vary in community, heard and unheard. It will hopefully will affect to the successful of program implementation of GEF SGP OP 6. The three main supplies that should be well managed by the community will be: food, water and energy. Women are responsible for the availability of those three things in household. In this case, the role of women should be considered as much as important than men.
Promoting Public Awareness of Global Environment
Our communication plan with support the program to maximize its outreach in increasing the awareness and commitment from relevant stakeholders, as well as to ensure the well record of learning and best practices of the GEF SGP Indonesia partners in delivering the GEF SGP Indonesia Phase-6. Our approach will includes the commencement of public relation activities, including workshop with relevant stakeholders to consult our proposed strategic plan, as well as to present the findings at the end of the fourth year of the programme. In addition, we will also apply creative and targeted strategy to facilitate sharing of information across partners through various means of communication such as printed report and audio visual media capturing the before and after visual of the relevant projects. To ensure the effective dissemination of these products, we will widely distribute the product to relevant stakeholders. These products will also capture the lessons learned from the GEF SGP partners while implementing the project as part of our monitoring and evaluation strategy. This findings will be collated to provide recommendations for the implementation, where it will be a key documents to be shared and replicated to the other GEF SGP Indonesia partners or to GEF global network.
