The House of Collaborative (RUKO) joined the Conservation Partnership Task Force in West Lampung Regency in the area around Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (TNBBS).
Participation was agreed upon in a joint meeting at the Lampung Provincial Forestry Service in early September 2020, followed by a series of field coordination meetings with the team in West Lampung Regency.
Coordinator of RUKO Ir Warsito stated that the implementation of conservation partnerships in BBSNP with community groups around them needs to be accompanied and facilitated together, in order to achieve the common goal of preserving flora and fauna in the TNBBS forest, but still providing opportunities for community groups around the forest to benefit directly and indirectly, with a conservation partnership cooperation scheme.
As a follow-up to the agreement, RUKO began facilitating conservation partnerships in Gedungsurian District, Pekon Trimulyo, September 9-10, 2020. RUKO Coordinator Ir Warsito went directly to the field to facilitate meetings and assistance with conservation partnership groups in this area.
