Book Launching: The Gallery of Peatland in Kampar Peninsula and Beyond: Beauties, Challenges, Opportunities

Kampar Peninsula is one of the peat swamp forest ecosystems remaining on Sumatera Island, Indonesia. This area of peat swamp forest is part of the natural resources that have important functions in the conservation of water resources, flood absorbers, seawater intrusion prevention and climate control through its ability to absorb and store carbon. The peatland forest ecosystem’s sustainability is a unity that is determined by the condition of the water system and it is controlled by a dome in the middle. In ecology, the forest ecosystem in the Kampar Peninsula is one of the key areas for biodiversity in Sumatera. This has resulted in the ecosystem being one of the focuses on stopping today’s biodiversity decline due to continuous deforestation in Sumatera. In general, land use change that has predominantly occurred in the tropics and agricultural activities globally accounts for about one-third of the total global Green House Gases (GHG) emission. In Indonesia, land and forest-use change contributes 53% of the total CO2 emission. In fact, 47% of the national CO2 emissions are generated from peatland ecosystems. The CO2 emission from peatlands is mainly caused by fires, peat decomposition and biomass removals. As these emissions are considered a serious global warming threat, Indonesia has made a non-binding commitment to reduce its GHG emissions by 26-41% by the year 2020. One of the policy options to reduce GHG emission is by enhancing peatland management practices.

 

In responding to the issue of CO2 emission from peatlands and to implement sustainable industrial plantation forest management, PT. Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper has improved and executed so called eco-hydro technology at Meranti Estate, Kampar Peninsula, Riau Province, Sumatera Island, Indonesia. The Ministry of Forestry Republic of Indonesia has appointed a Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) team in 2010. The MRV team is in charge of carrying out the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of eco-hydro management implemented by RAPP in peatland in Kampar Peninsula, Riau Province.

During the MRV activities, beauties, challenges and opportunities of peatland in Kampar Peninsula and beyond were captured by Professor Muhajir Utomo and Dr. Basuki Sumawinata. The book authors are Professor Muhajir Utomo, Dr. Basuki Sumawinata and Professor Budi Indra Setiawan; members of the MRV team. This photo book describes the natural richness of Indonesia, in particular location in Kampar Peninsula as peat swamp forest area which is located in Riau Province.

Industrial plantation forest (HTI) development in Kampar Ring must implement landscape approach given the Kampar Ring is one entity of ecosystem and water management in Kampar Peninsula in the provincial and district scales in the preparation to participate in efforts to mitigate climate change. This approach is done to ensure that up to how much influence the evelopment of industrial plantation forest in Kampar Ring with water management “eco-hydro” implemented by industrial plantation forest of RAPP to the water system in Kampar Peninsula as well as the connectivity of high conservation value forest functioned as endemic wildlife corridor to the broader habitat.

The book was launched by Forestry Minister of Republic of Indonesia. The authors hope that this photo book can enhance the knowledge base and enrich the wealth of Indonesia’s forest visualization as well as the community social economy living in the forest and surrounding forest in Indonesia. They also hope to expose challenges ahead that must be faced by all of us.

SEPAK TERJANG DEP. TEKNIK SIPIL DAN LINGKUNGAN DALAM PELATIHAN SRI ORGANIK PDF Print E-mail

Pendayagunaan sumberdaya air, termasuk untuk bidang pertanian, merupakan salah satu bidang kajian di Departemen Teknik Sipil dan Lingkungan Institut Pertanian Bogor (SIL IPB). Salah satu metode pendayagunaan sumberdaya air, khususnya di sawah produksi padi, yang saat ini tengah dikaji secara mendetail di SIL IPB adalah System of Rice Intensification (SRI). Untuk memahami mengenai dasar dari pertanian dengan metode SRI tersebut, maka SIL IPB mengirimkan delegasinya selama tiga tahun berturut-turut dalam pelatihan pertanian SRI organik di Nusantara Organic SRI Center (NOSC) Nagrak, Sukabumi. Pelatihan SRI organik di Nusantara Organic SRI Center (NOSC) Nagrak, Sukabumi dikemas secara apik dengan metode pembelajaran aktif dimana terdapat penekanan pada kegiatan diskusi, tinjauan kritis dan partisipasi aktif. Materi pelatihan disampaikan oleh beberapa pelatih yang sangat berpengalaman dengan teknik komunikasi yang menarik, sehingga mereka tidak membosankan dan mudah dimengerti oleh para peserta. Materi tersebut meliputi pengenalan NOSC dan SRI, permasalahan pertanian dan lingkungan, sistem ekologi tanah (fisika tanah, biologi tanah, dan kimia tanah), pengenalan bahan-bahan organik dan pengaruhnya terhadap tanah, pembuatan kompos, pembuatan pestisida dan pupuk (MOL), serta praktek penanaman SRI sistem dangkal di demplot yang telah disediakan. Pada tahun pertama, melalui pendanaan oleh RIHN-IPB dikirimkan 9 (sembilan) orang delegasi pada pelatihan di NOSC (28-31 Mei 2012) yang terdiri dari tim peneliti dari IPB (Andik Pribadi, STP, MSi dan Sutoyo, STP, MSi) serta petani-petani dari Saba dan Jeneberang. Petani-petani tersebut merupakan petani yang akan menerapkan metode SRI pada plot percobaan dari proyek penelitian IWRM (Integrated Water Resource Management) SIL IPB di DAS Saba Bali dan DAS Jeneberang Sulawesi Selatan. Pada tahun kedua, melalui pendanaan oleh RIHN-IPB pula kembali dikirimkan 5 (sembilan) orang delegasi pada pelatihan di NOSC (7-10 Oktober 2013) yang terdiri dari Dr. I Wayan Budiasa dan petani plot percobaan proyek penelitian IWRM SIL IPB di Bali. Dari pelatihan tersebut diharapkan penerapan metode SRI di sawah padi di Bali semakin baik. Sedangkan pada tahun ketiga, SIL IPB kembali mengirimkan 6 delegasi (Dr.Ir. Roh Santoso Budi Waspodo, MT; Dr. Rudiyanto, STP, MSi; Dr. Slamet Widodo, STP, MSc; Nurfaijah, STP; Oktari Ega S, STP; dan Nur Aini Iswati Hasanah, ST) ke pelatihan SRI Organik di NOSC (24-26 Mei 2014). Delegasi di tahun ketiga ini akan mempraktekkan secara langsung penanaman padi SRI di Pusat Penelitian SRI IPB yang akan segera didirikan. Secara umum, delegasi yang dikirim SIL IPB diharapkan mampu membawa paradigma baru untuk kemudian dikembangkan sebagai bahan riset atau pun sebagai salahsatu perwujudan tri darma perguruan tinggi yaitu pengabdian kepada masyarakat. Dengan demikian, SRI organik akan semakin berkembang dan secara signifikan mampu berkontribusi bagi pertanian Indonesia. Salam SRI, More Rice, Less Water! (/Aini/Ega/Faijah)

 

 
IPB touts zero runoff system to reduce floods PDF Print E-mail

In an effort to reduce the risk of flooding nationwide, Prof. Budi Indra Setiawan of the Bogor Institute of Agriculture (IPB) in West Java trumpeted on Thursday the benefits of the Zero Runoff System (Zros).

Budi said the use of Zros would help minimize flooding in problematic areas by eliminating puddles of water on roads as soon as the rain stopped.

He added that the system would have three features: reducing the upstream flow of water, increasing the absorption rate of soil, and preventing surface water runoff.

“Essentially, in Zros, water lines will be constructed on a particular road in such a way that the soil will be able to absorb puddles of rainwater on the street,” he said, adding that the water lines would be constructed according to the area’s water density.

Budi, who is a professor in the institute’s civil and environmental engineering department, said that Zros was founded in 2008, and had been successfully installed in several areas around the country.

He cited a star fruit plantation in Depok, West Java, as a particularly encouraging success story. There, installation of the Zros system not only stopped flooding during the rainy season, it also increased crop yields because the soil was kept damp during the autumn months.

Zros has been successfully installed in other locations, including at a nutmeg plantation in Aceh, and in the Cidanau watershed in Banten, West Java — an area inhabited by hundreds of residents.

Budi said that Zros should be installed in many areas as part of the solution to fight persistent flooding.

“We are currently planning to install Zros at the IPB’s Darmaga campus, an area that suffers from problematic surface water runoff,” Budi said.

In Jakarta, Budi said that flash flooding occurred because most of the city’s drainage system had not been constructed to accommodate heavy rains.

Infrastructure deficiencies have thus generated “multidimensional problems”, he said, all of which required immediate attention.

“We hope that developers and construction firms will take advantage of Zros,” he added.

Budi said that Zros would be a much cheaper and speedier alternative to the construction of reservoirs. He pointed to the protracted effort at the Ciawi

Reservoir in Bogor, West Java, as an example, where a host of obstacles, including land acquisition disputes, have hampered completion.

“Constructing Zros is not expensive [compared to a reservoir]. It also doesn’t require large-scale land acquisitions. All it needs is a commitment from the government to socialize the concept to citizens,” Budi said, adding that Zros could save the government money.

In addition, he said, the system would mitigate the effects of drought in places like eastern Indonesia by helping to keep the soil moist.
