On the island of Nusakambangan, which is a prison island with 7prison’s and covers 12.000 Hcts. , of which 4.000 Hcts of forest hasbeen destroyed by illegal logging over the years and in one area – SolokJero - + 250 very poor farmers moved it to make a living from the denudedhillsides. The Dept. of Justice intended to move these people forcibly fromthe land but through connections we were able to convince their head peo-ple that the denuded land could only be returned to native forest with thehelp of the farmers, as if someone planted saplings and left them untendedthey would soon be smothered by weeds. With a win-win solution – thefarmers be allowed to plant corn, peas, rice etc. and saplings among theircrops - they could look after both crops and saplings. Also they would beallowed to plant 30% fruit trees that they would continue to harvest into thefuture and then 70% native trees for restoration of the eco-system. They would also protect the forest from illegal loggers and thefauna from unwanted hunters. In recent months this group has planted170.000 trees and plant 130.000 more shortly. On two occasions, workingwith the forest rangers, they apprehend two groups of illegal loggers withtheir chain saws etc. and these are now in jail in Cilacap. Last week we held a meeting of farmers, forest rangers, dept. ofcorrection people etc. and 25 farmers whose lands now totally covered intrees, will begin planting another 25 hcts. We have two other groups who planted 310.000 fast grow-ing trees and we are dialoging on the future of this venture as we wish toharvest these and replace them with Native and fruit trees. Misereor Pro-jects helps in a small way with foot paths, culverts etc. as part of the Com-munity Building Small Projects Section of the Program. In another area of + 2.000 hcts. which was “sea” + 300 yrs. ago –then with sedimentation became mangrove forest and further sedimenta-tion became wet lands and we built river and sea dykes and it became riceland but as the area was uninhabited (uninhabitable) the land is still con-trolled by the Forestry Dept. and the tenant farmers pay a small rent.However at the moment we support the “FREE FARMERS UNION” toprocure rights for this land. 2

  4. 4. Pre Project II. INPUT III. Implementing Input 1. The projects continue wih the same A. Road procedures i.e. the people a village experience a need for canal, a dyke, a road or the hard surfacing of a dirt road. The villagers gather, discuss and debate ending with a decision to ask the help of Y.S.B.S. 2. The procedure to obtain a project is set by the Regency Government: a) Village Meeting, b) Agreed by Village Chief and Council, c) Agreement of Kecamatan Office (Sub.Regency), d) Regency Planning Board, e) Technical Review by Public Works Dept. or Relevant Gov. Beureucracy. 3. Letters of Recomendation to YSBS from the above offices 1. In this period we have implemented projects – Road, dykes and canal’s in the following 30 villages: Rungkang, Sidane- 4.

  5. 5. III. Implementing Input IV. OUT PUTSB. Canals1. Three villages built canals Pelindukan, Bugel and Penikel so that when the rivers were in full flood the waters carried in mud and raised the wet lands so that rice could be planted and this was very successful as the soil was very fertile – top soil from mountain slopes – and produced very high yields of Padi – rice still on stalks and easily stored for future use – up to 8 tons per hectare. With an input of 70 – 80 million rupiahs per canal produced rice worth 1.6 billion rupiah per canal.2. There canals will be increased so that more wet lands can become rice fields and help food security for the area as well as increase family incomes.3. The staff and students from Gajah Mada Uni- versity were very impressed with this program and will continue to monitor progress.C. Dykes1. Two villages built dykes – Bringkeng and Ka- libener to stop rivers overflowing their banks and drowning the rice crop.2. The rivers run through the rice fields as it is a flood plain and constant attention must be given to these dykes.3. The mud to raise the dykes is taken from the bottom of the river, keeping the depth. of the river constant.D. Drainage projects1. The drains were dug in two villages Pahonjean and Bendakulon – an area where five rivers meet and flood almost every year.2. The drains were lined with rocks and the villag- ers bought cement and sand to keep the rocks in place.3. All the work done making the drains was done with voluntary labour (Gotong Royong) 5
  6. 6. IV. OUT PUTS PHYSICAL 1. 15.459 meters of road hard surfaced by us and 1.680 meters rehabilitated and these roads are being further enhanced by a government program. Due to the nature of the terrain – sedi- mentation – the input of our rocks is most important to stop sub- sidence and break up of the roads. The compaction caused by our trucks further help the strength of the roads. 2. The drains opened up + 400 hcts. of wetlands become rice fields producing over 1.000 tons of rice for the area. 3. The dykes ensured flood waters did not inundate the rice fields. 4. The drainage program helped rain water reach the rivers more quickly and avoid flooding. NON PHYSICAL 1. Social capital (community). We have passed on the thesis of a student from Program Management of Infrastructur and Community Development (MICD) Gajah Mada University Post Graduate Yogyakarta and the findings seem to be – that by our “non intrusive” approach at the beginnings of the project and hence tottaly controlled and decided upon by vilagers, that this gives them stronger sense of owning the project. The Government intervention from the start of the program which has its strenghts – e.g. more definite gender contribution, but the villagers sense of owning he project is lessened. The greater voluntary input in our program also seems to be more conducive to a positive atmosphere as the project is implemented. 2. Acces to Markets – increased income – many people have begun making red bricks from the sediment in the rivers and the dyke roads make it possible to carry these to markets e.g. the interviewed of Stephanus Mulyadi with a woman whose husband was crippled from falling of a coconut tree. She earned IDR 30 for placing the mud in a cast until it sets and she could make ± IDR 60.000 a day doing this – which is 50% more than craftsman earns.(plus access yang sudah ada dalam laporan terdahulu) 3. A German Girl – Judit Miryam Edelmann has wrote her thesis on YSBS inter faith Dialog and after Defend the thesis, she will give a copy to Misereor. On May 26th I was awarded the “MAARIF’ AWARD for our Pluralistic approach to Social Work (Muhamadiyah Movement). Also being able to include radical groups (FPI) in our programms. 4.
