1 COUNTRY REPORT-2016/2017 THE INDONESIAN MAB PROGRAMME NATIONAL COMMITTEE: Management and Development of Biosphere Reserves in Indonesia Indonesia is recognized as a country of mega-diversity with ecosystems ranging from coral reef to the snow-capped mountains. However, the challenges to protect Indonesia s natural resources and ecosystems have increased over time. The pressures on the natural resources and ecosystem has triggered new challenges, including ecosystem/environmental degradation and biodiversity loss. The Indonesian Government has made efforts to prevent the extinction of biodiversity through in-situ and ex-situ conservation activities. Biosphere reserves (BR) are an appropriate program for conducting conservation activities effectively and corroborating the sustainable development principles, thus make a challenge for the government to implement this concept. The government has developed 11 Biosphere Reserves covering a total area of more than 15 million hectares, which are three million hectares of conservation areas are included in the core area. The development of Indonesian Biosphere Reserves is following below-mentioned strategies: 1. Three principal strategic programs, namely biodiversity conservation (protection and restoration), community development and logistic support. 2. Collaborative/multi-stakeholders action that requires the awareness and commitment of stakeholders as predominant factor. 3. Mainstreaming the biosphere reserve concept in the policies, strategic plan and activities at national and regional levels. Since Lima Action Plan (LAP) was adopted by the 28 th MAB ICC 2016, Indonesia started to implement almost immediately. Presently, the Indonesia MAB National Committee adopted the document into their Strategic Plan/Roadmap and following by the implementation in the BRs activity. The priority programs for implementing LAP are including: (a) BRs as a model of Sustainable Development, (b) Strengthening Collaboration and Networking, (c) Establishing the Sustainable Financing Scheme, (d) Communication and Information. In 2016, several programs are implemented by the National Committee, BRs institution and related parties within the framework of the biosphere reserve program, and can be generally divided into two major schemes: (a) an effective management of Biosphere Reserves, and (b) Biosphere Reserves development programs. The achievement of these major schemes will be described in the following explanation. A. Management of Indonesian Biosphere Reserves: Strengthening the Legal Aspect, BRs Institution and Monitoring System The national committee has several strategies to strengthening the management of Indonesian BRs as follow:

2 1. Revitalizing/re-organizing the Indonesia MAB National Committee. 2. Developing Roadmap of the Indonesia MAB National Committee Mainstreaming the BR into the National Legislation and budgeting System. 4. Strengthening Biosphere Reserve management institution. 5. Establishing Standard guideline for Indonesian BR management and program. 6. Establishing the National Monitoring System: Biosphere Reserve Monitoring Tools. 7. Monitoring, Evaluation and Improvement of BR Management Plan. 8. National and International collaboration/networking for developing programs in BRs. 9. Increasing capacity building: Human resources and Technical Skills. Figure 1. New structure of the Indonesia MAB National Committee B. Development of Indonesian Biosphere Reserves: Programs and Follow-up Plan I. Program Indonesia's biosphere reserve development program can be divided into Conservation, Community Development and Research & Development programs. In addition, Branding and Development of New BR program was also carried out. Conservation and Research Programs are mainly conducted in the core zone, while the Community Development program is implemented mainly in the buffer zone and transition area. Conservation Program, through: 1. Optimizing Core Area Management for Good Forestry Government and Collaborative Management

3 2. Enhanced effectiveness of stakeholder-based activity for law enforcement, area protection and forest fire management in the Core Area 3. Ecosystem rehabilitation and restoration 4. Main Implementing Agency: Ministry of E&F, NP, Conservation Agency, NGOs Community Development program, through: 1. Community empowerment through capacity building, economic sovereignty and preservation of local culture 2. Main Implementing Agency: Local government, NGOs, Private Sector Research and Development program, through: 1. Development of BR as a center for research on ecosystem dynamics, ecosystem rehabilitation and restoration 2. Strengthening sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services 3. Main Implementing Agency: Research Institution, University, NP, NGOs Conservation and Protection Community Development Research, Monitoring and Infrastructure Infrastructure Figure 2. Selected programs of Indonesian Biosphere Reserves. Branding of Biosphere Reserve The development of product branding is to enhance the added value of the products from the biosphere reserve area by utilizing the status of the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. This internationally prestigious status should be utilized to promote the development of biosphere reserve products in order to increase the added value of the products for improving the quality of living standards of the local community. There are two activities for branding of Indonesian Biosphere Reserves product: 1. Strengthening the identity by establishing and promoting logo of BRs.

4 2. Branding of BRs Products for local community, private sectors, home industry, tourism, etc. Figure 3. Logo of Indonesian Biosphere Reserves New BR development Indonesia is committed to incorporating a sustainable development policy framework within national and regional planning documents. To support this sustainable development policy, the biosphere reserves is considered as an appropriate concept for achieving that goal. MAB Indonesia is committed to developing Indonesian BRs to support sustainable development. Therefore, MAB Indonesia has a responsibility in developing new BRs and enhancing the capacity of BRs, based on the MAB Indonesia grand design / roadmap. This year Indonesia will propose three nomination of biosphere reserves, namely: (a) Berbak Sembilang, (b) Betung Kerihun Danau Sentarum Kapuas Hulu, and (c) Rinjani Lombok. Berbak Sembilang area is representing peatland, freshwater swamp forest, mangrove and Sumatran lowland ecosystem, thus they serve as the habitat for Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae), Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus), migratory birds, etc. Betung Kerihun and Danau Sentarum areas is representing the Borneo montane and lowland rain forest, lakes, freshwater swamp forest and peat swamp forest, thus they serve as the habitat for Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) and seven other primate species, and Bornean endemic species. Mount Rinjani is representing Lesser Sunda s lowland forest, montane forest, savanna and Caldera lake, thus they serve as the habitat for Lesser Sunda endemic species, such as Rinjani scops owl (Otus jolandae), Orchids Peristylus rintjaniensis and P. lombokensis. II. Implementation of Lima Action Plan in Indonesia Lima Action Plan puts emphasis on achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals by implementing a harmonious interaction between society and the biosphere. Shortly after LAP was adopted, MAB Indonesia integrating it into the MAB Indonesia Roadmap The overall goal for implementation of LAP in Indonesia is to establishing well-proven models of sustainability developed in biosphere reserves.
