Success Story

E-mail Print PDF

Titling back on ICATAD website in early June, about the opportunity to visit Germany for 1 month received by a young researcher (Yovita Anggita Dewi) thanks to its success completing tasks online in two series of workshops, here is the gift she shared.

The opportunity for a month study tour to learn and see the implementation of Local Economy Development (LED) in Germany, a lot of interesting things can be learned, especially “secret” behind the success achieved by Germany in applying LED. Not as envisaged earlier, Germany is country that doesn’t seem much of problem. One of the strongest economies in Europe is also many problems in increasing growth and welfare. The low rate of population growth, for instance, in Berlin causes deficiency of the younger generation, while Cologne deal with problems many skilled and educated workforce that moved to another city (urbanization).

Likewise with Born, former capital of the state, this must be struggling with issues movement of all administrative matters to Berlin, which means also the loss of employment. However, instead of struggling and complaining, the cities in Germany continued to build and compete with each other. To grow the local economy and improve the competitiveness of local government, every region must have a clear plan so that LED can be funded by the European Union. Without the program and competitive LED plan, these areas will not get funding. This is slightly different from the funding system in Indonesia that has not put aspects of competency as a consideration for an area can get funding. The successful implementation of LED accomplished because of the local government’s commitment to grow each region and reduce dependence on central government. Similarly, the obligation for the regions to work together with surrounding area is necessary, even work voluntarily in building the regional economy.

Competition, commitment and cooperation are slick, actually can be a learning and example for the regions in Indonesia, including in promoting regional agricultural development. In the context of innovation for building local support, through the commitment of local governments who supports AIAT is not impossible that every region can accelerate local economic development including cooperation among adjacent AIATs.

Monday morning (30/8), IAARD Director attended the Workshop on FFS-ICM at Salak Hotel, Bogor. The workshop was also attended by Head of AIAT and researchers of ICATAD. The important point mentioned was advice to evaluate FFS-ICM either already done or still needs to be done. Another point was about the institutional relationship. He said,”The evaluation results show that the relationship between Local Government is increasingly synergistic and existence of AIAT also increasingly needed.” However, AIAT still have more often come down to the field. “The actual data or report from field is still lacking, although these data are very useful for materials including policies,” he said.

The next point was the achievement of performance by AIAT. He stated that the role of AIAT in some provinces was quite dominant, and need to be appreciated. “However, for handling the problem of pests and diseases, showing that AIAT role is not optimal,” he explained. For instance, in Central Java, many plant hoppers attacked and the land left stranded,” he added. The last point, that the report of FFS-ICM still weak because no report received by IAARD continually. He asserted that the report was very important and not necessarily in written form, but can be made online, then compiled in IAARD.

Associated with the development of FFS-ICM forward, there will be a short-term plan about 4-6 months in 30-40 districts. The program was undertaken in order to speed up planting and pest control, while the selected location is strategic location and endemic of plant hopper. In addition, this program will involve Army that planned to be formulated in the form of MoU. At the end of his speech, the Director also emphasized and expressed repeatedly that we must continue to work optimally and AIAT have to continue to assist and oversee the implementation of FFS-ICM.

E-mail Print PDF

Entering a period of three years passing courses PUAP considered important to measure how far PUAP goal can be achieved and can be implemented. Furthermore, how these activities have been carried out beneficial for all stakeholders or adopted by the community. On the other hand, if these activities have been completed and executed by a team coordinated PUAP from central to local levels, how to keep it sustainable, how the strategy (exit strategy) and who will manage it in the future. Many of these questions need to be answered and is given as input for policy makers for future agricultural development.

All of the questions above can be answered through an Outcome Based Monitoring and Evaluation (OBMNE).OMBNE is an approach to monitoring and evaluation, which will see further than only to the extent of output but also the outcome.

In 29 - July 31, 2010 and in the Hotel Garden Permana, Bandung, Midyear  Workshop of PUAP which theme "Strategy Formulation and Parameters OBMNE PUAP Sustainability” was held. The event was opened by the Director if ICATAD, Dr. Muhrizal Sarwani, MSc, with the overall number of participants around 55 people.

To achieve success on PUAP Program, Director of ICATAD gave some directions such that the program has been running PUAP three years (2008-2010) has generated a lot of data and information, researchers / extension staff involved PUAP activities required to make writing, at least three articles from the implementation OBMNE, also conveyed BBP2TP will facilitate such a seminar (November 2010) and will publish the book from those seminar in  Year 2011; as guidance for the implementation OBMNE, Team will create guidelines about OBMNE, completed in August 2010 as a reference for implementation in the field and besides , PUAP activities need to be synergy with other strategic programs, and needs to be increased utilization of LO / Korwil from BPTP.

In addition to evaluate the activities of mid-year 2010 PUAP activities, the workshop also aims to formulate the parameters for implementing Outcome-Based Monitoring and Evaluation (OBMNE) on PUAP Program from 2008 to 2010, to formulate strategies for the sustainability of the program goals or objectives PUAP, and to formulate policy brief as input for policy makers in planning future activities PUAP.

Resource persons at the workshop were Prof. Dr. Lutfhi Fatah (University of Gastric Mangkurat), and Dr. Nyak Ilham (PSE-KP). Prof. Dr. Lutfhi Fatah delivered eight steps to conduct outcome evaluations, including: 1) Getting started; 2) Formulate outcome; 3) Determine key indicators; 4) Determine the type of data; 5) Determine the target outcome; 6) Collect data; 7) data analysis; and 8) report results and recommendations. Outcome-Based Monitoring and Evaluation (OBMNE) can approach: 1) Workshop on the importance of OBMNE; 2) Training on OBMNE; and 3) Collaboration in conducting OBMNE.
While Dr. Ilham Nyak provided learning a lot about how far the impact of the program PUAP especially against farmer group union and to the wider Economic Area.

PUAP impact on farmer group union can be perceived directly (capital increase), such as increased production, decreased production costs, and increase business profits or indirectly (mentoring and counseling), such as: skills improved cultivation techniques (production increase), increased business capabilities, performance increased farmer group union (helpless and functioning), increased productivity and efficiency (the ability of business)

Economic Impact on roughly PUAP could indirectly (multiplier effect to all stake holders: use of farmer group union business network), among others: (1) If the production increases, trade, processing and services increases, (2) Because the type and scale of operations increased, the demand inputs increased so that the production, trading and procurement services inputs increased, (3) If the farmer group union RTP revenue increases, consumption increases so that the production, trade and services, consumer goods increased; (4) Impact PUAP to GDP / GDP.

As an introductory in discussion of the subject matter submitted by BPTP Central Java and Banten, found some semblance of a strategy that can be undertaken include: (1) the involvement / role of Local Government, (2) improvement and growth of MFI-A farmer group union business; (3) the formation of associations farmer group union, and (4) development of new programs (Central and Local Government).
