Background
:

RESPEK Program has been implemented in Papua and West Papua since 2007 and was integrated into
PNPM Mandiri

in 2008. After more than 3 years, a number of key best practices and lessons learned
have emerged that would be beneficial for key stakeholders. However, documents or reports that
compile the best practices and lesson learned are not available yet. Con
sidering this program is a good
example of local government initiative to alleviate poverty in its area, codifying and sharing its
achievements is strongly recommended.

To learn about RESPEK Program and its implementation progress by
conducting field visits to sub

Findings




In implementing the program, c
ommunity developed creative approaches
to deal with some
problems. These are part of good practices of PNPM RESPEK.




There is an urgent need for information and knowledge exchange for work improvement.
Facilitators
have been doing information exchange among them to find the best way in assisting the community
to implement the program.
These activities done during district coordination meeting.
However,

they still need documentation (
books,
reports, gui
dance,
etc) for reference.




Papua Knowledge Center is a good facility supported by the provincial government. However, the
activities are very limited and there is no strategic plan from the center to especially support RESPEK
Program.




KIPRAH, a local NGO, has been doing a model of activity to promote
community
-
based learning
process

in
12 sub
-
districts with fund from SERASI Project. The result of these community
-
based
discussions brought to experts meeting at district level involving
government officials, other NGOs
and academicians. Furthermore, the
discussion
results are provided as recommendation for
provincial government.

The result of discussions can be viewed in this address:

. The NGO still need capacity building to develop various multimedia
for processing the information and providing it as lesson learned for the key stakeholders.




BPMK, represented by Bpk. Monte expressed their support to our plan t
o develop strategy for
facilitating learning process through collecting best practices and lesson learned.
He offered his help
by issuing a formal letter to all facilitators to support this idea.
He also initiated an idea to conduct a
competition for get
ting best practices stories from all over Papua Province.




LPPM (Lembaga Penelitian dan Pengabdian Masyarakat or Institution for Research and Community
Service) at the Cendrrawasih University has been involved
in recruitment process and training activity

for RESPEK
technical
facilitators since 2002.
In 2009 and 2010, they conducted refreshing training for
facilitators recruited in 2002/2003 and 2008/2009. In additional to that, they were also involved in
producing some communication materials such as the
book “Good and Bad Practices for
Infrastructure” and RESPEK Information Kit.

There are 4 activities planned in 2011 including training
for financial facilitators, training for technical facilitators, impact study of PNPM RESPEK on education
and health and

another barefoot training

(for the 3
rd

batch). For the 1
st

to 3
rd

activities will be funded
by AusAID and for the 4
th

activity is proposing to the World Bank. They are still waiting for budget
approval.

Follow up:




KM Team will develop a strategy
to facilitate learning process for key stakeholders at local level
.
The
province has some valuable assets for program improvement in the future: local government who
provides fully support to the program, the model of community
-
based learning process, a f
acility that
can be used as a center for collecting and disseminating lesson learned and an university which has
done some information dissemination activities for RESPEK Program.



This

would be a

pilot
project involving
2 provinces, including Papua Provinc
e.

The pilot can be done
through collaboration with the local NGOs such as KIPRAH

and institution such as Papua Knowledge
Center and LPPM Cendrawasih University.
KM Team will help them to improve their capacity in
processing information and presenting it

in different formats for
various multimedia (audio visual,
website, books, bulletin, blog, etc).
This lesson learned could be a very useful learning media for other
sub
-
districts in the province.



LPPM is planning to update RESPEK Information Kit and need
fund support as much as Rp 60 million.
The information kit is very important for the program. They already have detailed plan on how to
update it. PSF can support them technically and financially.



A further discussion with the LPPM of the university will

be done to explore more good practices and
lesson learned specifically about recruitment process and training activity for facilitators
(barefoot
training)
i
n Papua and West Papua Province. It seems that LPPM has no good records on what they
have done for RESPEK Program. PSF should help them to dig out the records and document them.



Related to ideas from BPMK, PSF is expected to send a formal letter to BPMK

to request support for
collecting best practices stories from facilitators and for conducting a competition with the same
objective. Based on this letter, BPMK will issue a letter to all facilitators and local implementers. The
letter should be accompan
ied by guidance for the competition (criteria, rule of games, etc).
