February 5, 2020

Location: Malaysia

The Sustainable Use of Peatland and Haze Mitigation in ASEAN (SUPA) Component 1 has three work areas. Work area 2 focuses on specific support to ASEAN Member States (AMS) for the implementation of ASEAN Peatland Management Strategy (APMS) and National Action Plan for Peatlands (NAPPs) via SUPA funds. The support will be done through funding allocation which will be distributed to eligible AMS through a restricted call for proposals.

GIZ Concept Note on Development Training, held for Indonesia on 5-6 February 2020 and for Malaysia on 13-14 February 2020, was the first activity related to Work Area 2. The goal of these workshops was to improve the capacities of AMS to develop project-related concept note drafts to apply for SUPA funds. During the two-day workshop, participants of relevant units from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KHLK) in Indonesia and the Ministry of Water, Land and Natural Resources (KATS) in Malaysia as well as other ministries and state agencies with a mandate related to peatland and fire issues brainstormed ideas and presented initial concept note drafts for feedback.

The national focal points for peatlands In Indonesia and Malaysia, KHLK and KATS, thanked for the provision of funds to support sustainable peatland management on ground, and expressed appreciation for the training opportunity to develop integrated and high-quality concept notes.
