Abstract

One of the causes of failure in the Forest and Land Rehabilitation (FLR) activities in Bengkulu Province is due to lack of use of prospective local plants. In addition, it is also due to the low participation, capacity and awareness of the community as well as related parties (especially regional stakeholders) in the FLR activity itself. The ITTO’s project entitled “Improving Forest Functions in Bengkulu Province through Community Participation in Rehabilitation of Degraded Forests by Using Local Prospective Commodities” has been implemented with the purposes to implement appropriate technology for the production of quality plant material from prospective local species and to improve the welfare of the community through the success of forest and land rehabilitation activities. The project has been implemented by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in collaboration with Forestry Service of Bengkulu Province and the local communities. The promoted prospective local plants were Kayu Bawang (Azadirachta excelsa) and Bentara Durian (Durio zibethinus). The expected outputs of the Project were as follows: (1) Identification of seed sources and application of seedling propagation technology for the selected prospective local plants, (2) Preparation and dissemination of technical guidelines for prospective local plants seedling and planting technology, (3) Production and distribution of qualified prospective local plants seedling for the community, and (4) development of qualified local plants models (Kayu Bawang and Bentara Durian).
