Posted by Jamal Fida Wednesday, February 27, 2013 0 comments

Closing Date: March 3,2013.

Since 2005, the UNESCO and Gunung Leuser National Park (GLNP) have worked together to improve the conservation of the National Park and to promote sustainable livelihoods in the villages located in its surroundings. Among the array of activities that the UNESCO Environmental Science Unit has carried out in GLNP, one of the most relevant is the Ecosystem Restoration Program in Sei Serdang.

The main objectives are:
A.   To undertake and ensure the continuity of periodic monitoring and evaluation on the process of accelerated natural forest succession in Sei Serdang and Sei Musam;
B.   To carry out a forest composition study in a primary forest with similar environmental conditions to the one to be restored. As the basis to develop a scientific-based ecological restoration methodology, the study shall cover but not limited to:
a.       Assessment of the potential of accelerated natural succession in the area,
b.      Overview of the use of fast growing species, local species and attractive species for wildlife;
C.   To provide accurate and scientific information for the national park staff, including the park manager, on the ecosystem restoration methodology that is being applied in Sei Serdang and will be applied in Sei Musam;
D.   To develop the practical guidelines on a scientific-based ecological restoration based on the experience of the restoration activities in Sei Serdang. The development of guideliness requires full participation from the numerous stakeholders whose experiences in applying the accelerated natural succession in the area in the lowland forest, including conservationists and scientists as well as Forest Protection and Nature Conservation (PHKA) and Watershed Management Body (BPDAS) Ministry of Forestry; and
E.    To disseminate the practical guidelines among relevant stakeholders on ecosystem restoration through a national workshop, in order to share lessons learnt and standardize the methodologies used in other areas.

Expected Outputs:
A.   Comprehensive evaluation report on the implementation, monitoring and results of the restoration activities carried out in Sei Serdang, including recommendations/proposed planning for follow up monitoring and evaluation activities to ensure the continuity of monitoring and evaluation.
B.   Comprehensive report on forest composition study in a primary forest with similar environmental conditions to the one to be restored in Sei Musam, as such assessing the potential of the accelerated natural succession in the area, including an overview of the use of fast growing species, local species and attractive species for wildlife as the basis to develop a scientific-based ecological restoration methodology
C.   Proposed a scientific-based ecological restoration methodology to be adapted in the new restoration area, with special intention on the measures that need to be revised in deviation from the Restoration Design prepared for Sei Serdang area.
D.   Final draft on the practical guidelines on a scientific-based ecological restoration on lowland forest applying the accelerated natural succession process
E.    Minutes of meeting of national workshop on the lesson learnt and best practices in a scientific-based ecological restoration on the lowland forest applying the accelerated natural succession process
F.    Comprehensive report on all of the project activities
