Vacancy Announcement "FPIC Trainer"

Wildlife Conservation Society is an international conservation organization formed in 1895 in New York, United States. Since 1997, WCS-Indonesia Program has begun working to support the government in preserving wildlife on land and sea. WCS with the support from Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety German and KfW Development Bank is implementing the project “Marine Biodiversity and Coastal Livelihood in Sulawesi/Coral Triangle” in 3 provinces in Aceh, North Sulawesi and West Nusa Tenggara.

All projects supported by KfW must comply with the KfW’s Sustainability Guideline (2016), which includes applying the interim GCF Safeguard System, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards as well as with applicable World Bank Operational Policies and Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Guidelines. The IFC Performance Standard 7 recognizes that Indigenous Peoples, as social groups with identities that are distinct from the mainstream group in national societies, are often among the marginalized and vulnerable segments of the population. In many case, their economic, social and legal status limits their capacity to defend their right to, and interest in, lands and natural and cultural resources. To ensure each customary community group understands their right to give or not give consent to the action that affects them, it is necessary to do Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC). Training is needed so that the WCS field staff (Terrestrial and Marine) are aware of FPIC processes.

In Aceh, WCS works to strengthen the role of Panglima Laot, the existence of Panglima Laot customary institution has an important role in the management of marine and fisheries resources. Until the end of 2019, there are 174 Panglima Laot Lhok in Aceh, 18 Panglima Laot at district level, 1 Panglima Laot at the provincial level. Each Panglima Laot Lhok has a custom based management system which is different form another group depending on natural and social characteristics, history, resources, knowledge and the agreement of each Lhok.

In North Sulawesi, WCS work in 3 areas: North Minahasa, Siau Tagulandang Biaro Islands (Sitaro), and Sangihe Islands. The majority of North Sulawesi’s population is the Minahasa, Bolaang Mongondow, Sangihe, Talaud, Siau. The results of the assessment in the 3 regions were found the indigenous people in several villages including Lihunu Village, Para Village and Bukide Village.

Fishermen in West Nusa Tenggara come from various ethnic groups including Bugis, Sumbawa, Bajo, Sasak, Mbojo, and others. The ethnic group most often found in the coastal areas of WNT is the Bugis people. Some of these fishermen still adhere to rules or customs in the form of sea salvation or harbor, where fishermen are prohibited from fishing for 1-7 days before the event takes place. In addition, there is the “awig-awig" that regulates the time and day when fishermen may or may not go to sea such as on Friday or community and religious events.
