Training to Handle Human and Tiger Conflict

The Transforming Effectiveness of Biodiversity Conservation in Priority Sumatran Landscapes project aims to enhance biodiversity conservation in priority Sumatran landscapes, through implementation of best management practices in protected areas and adjacent production areas, using tiger recovery as an indicator of success. The project will create a model of biodiversity management in priority landscapes.

One of the project outputs is effective handling of human and tiger conflicts on 5 project landscapes. Team will be operated to handle conflict at site level. The conflict management team can work effectively if it has adequate capacity, both in terms of skills; equipment or other operational support.

Human and tiger conflict (KHM) is one of the factors along with poaching and illegal wildlife trading that has caused Sumatran tigers being killed in nature. Inadequate conflict handling will encourage tiger killings and will have an impact on the existing population in long term.

The government has issued Permenhut No. 48 / Menhut- II / 2008 on Guidelines on Handling Human and Wildlife Conflict towards appropriate conflict management. The document describes ways to tackle or act when a conflict occurs. Based on the regulation, it is expected that the conflict between human and tiger can be handled effectively thereby reducing the negative risk both to human and animal.

As a complement to the regulations issued, the Directorate General of KSDAE in collaboration with partners has published “Practical Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Conflict between humans and tigers,” as well as “Veterinary Practical Guides in Handling of Conflict Victims.” Within the framework of the Transforming Effectiveness of Biodiversity Conservation in Priority Sumatran Landscapes.

In order to support these efforts, the project organizes a training course to handle KHM. This training is intended for the officials, both the scope of KLHK and related institutions involved in handling KHM in the field. The training will use a curriculum developed together with certified PUSDIKLAT KLHK to issue certified training for government officials. So that if the participants meet the requirements and through training it will get a certificate of competence recognized in the system of government apparatus.

Conflict management training activities of humans with tigers will be held on 19 – 24 March 2018 at Balai Diklat KLHK Pekanbaru, Riau. The training was attended by National Park Staff / BKSDA, for Forest Police / Polyforce at least in skilled level; assigned or assigned to the conflict management team in the UPT and other agencies including the TNI / POLRI, with minimum qualifications at Babinkantibmas / Babinsa level, KPHK / Satker related staff equivalent to UPT KSDAE level and officers who have been involved or will be assigned to the team conflict prevention.
