About WRI Indonesia
WRI Indonesia is an independent research organization dedicated to contributing to the socioeconomic development of Indonesia in an inclusive and sustainable way. Our work is focused on six main areas: forests, climate, energy, cities and transportation, governance, as well as ocean. We turn big ideas into action at the nexus of environment, economic opportunity, and human well-being.
Established in January 2014 with its headquarter in Jakarta, WRI Indonesia is a non-profit research organization affiliated with the World Resources Institute, a global environmental think tank based in Washington D.C. WRI has a research network of over 450 experts and staff in more than 50 countries with offices in China, India, Indonesia, Europe and the United States. In Indonesia, we have run projects with partners for over 20 years, and WRI Indonesia was formally launched to build a robust in-country presence, to formalize existing partnerships, as well as strengthen our research on the ground.
About the Project
The issue of overlapping concession licenses is nothing new in Indonesia’s natural resources sector. Enabled by weak land-use governance, irresponsible parties have exploited the country’s natural resources without considering the environmental, legal, and social repercussions. Seeking to address these, the government of Indonesia issued the One Map Policy (OMP) in 2010 and called to accelerate its implementation in 2016. WRI aims to support the implementation of this policy at the local jurisdiction through a collaborative effort called the “One Map Initiative (OMI) at the Local Level”. The work spans until 2020, focusing on Riau, South Sumatra, Papua and West Papua.
One Map Initiative (OMI) at the Local Level is a collaborative initiative for sustainable and equitable land use and planning in Riau, South Sumatera, Papua and West Papua in order to support the government to implement low-emission development. Despite the name, OMI will go beyond the development of a unified, accurate, official, secured and up-to-date geospatial database with associated social and economic data of such provinces. Through a multi-stakeholder forum, OMI will be a people-oriented process that involves key stakeholders such as the government (Geospatial Information Agency, Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs and many others), CSOs, community groups and indigenous people to discuss conflicts typology regarding land use.
From the communications perspective, WRI Indonesia seeks to inspire active participation of the stakeholders to help ensure successful implementation of both OMP and OMI. The stakeholders comprise of national and local government, private sector, indigenous groups, smallholder farmers, and the public. In order to develop the most effective communications strategy to promote the target audiences’ understanding of and active support as well as evaluate its effectiveness during and after the implementation, it is essential to understand the target audiences’ perception of and attitude toward the OMP and OMI, as well as the means to influence them. To achieve that, both baseline and endline perception survey is needed.
The baseline perception survey has been conducted in 2017 to inform our 2-year communications strategy. The survey captured findings on target participants’ perception on OMP and OMI, attitude towards OMP and OMI, source and means of communications and information as well as challenges hindering communications and actions pertaining to OMP and OMI. We also conducted conventional and social media analysis to understand coverage and discussion around OMP.
The baseline study was conducted in four provinces, namely Riau, South Sumatra, Papua, and West Papua. It covered four stakeholder groups, namely government, private sector, smallholder farmers, and indigenous communities. Interviews of key opinion leaders, as well as a desktop research of conventional and social media, were also done to complement the data on a national level.
Since the project is coming to an end, WRI Indonesia seeks to find a consulting firm or individual to undertake an endline perception survey to evaluate WRI Indonesia’s programmatic and communications activities in terms of target participants’ knowledge, perception and attitude towards OMP and OMI. The consulting firm or individual is also expected to conduct a conventional and social media analysis to understand coverage and discussion around OMP and how it has shifted from 2016-2017.
