Impact and outputs of the MOBILE project beyond academic publications

September 2022
The project has been involved in discussions between the Punan Batu Sajau community, who continue to live a substantially mobile and forest-product subsistence lifestyle in northeast Kalimantan, as well as NGOs and local government in support of protecting their cultural forests. In September 2022, we attended meetings between The Nature Conservancy, a charity that has recently been leading the initiative, community representatives, company representatives, and local government. GPS data recording the forest areas used by the Punan Batu people, from previous projects and now extended by MOBILE, has been vital for these discussions. The project outputs have also increased coverage highlighting challenges faced by the community in the Indonesian national press (e.g. https://www.kompas.id/baca/ilmiah-populer/2022/03/14/punan-batu-pemburu-terakhir-kalimantan-yang-kian-terdesak and https://www.kompas.id/baca/humaniora/2022/09/04/kerusakan-hutan-dan-perubahan-iklim-mengancam-punan-batu among others).
22nd – 26th August 2022
The first Project Meeting in Indonesia, held at MRIN, brought together global and local collaborators for seminars, discussions and workshops. The seminars were reported on in the national news, while the discussions were a great opportunity for knowledge sharing - learning about the challenges and situation for different hunter-gatherer groups in Indonesia from local researchers, and discussing aspects of the project plan, sampling and analyses to be conducted. Two members of the team from Cambridge ran a 2-day workshop on population genetics and bioinformatic methods attended by local scientists, supporting skills transfer and knowledge sharing. Thanks to everyone involved for making the meeting such a success!
September 2022
Kami terlibat dalam diskusi dengan masyarakat Punan Batu Sajau, lembaga NGO, dan pemerintah daerah dalam mendukung perlindungan hutan budaya mereka. Pada bulan September 2022, kami menghadiri pertemuan dengan The Nature Conservancy, sebuah badan amal yang baru-baru ini memimpin inisiatif tersebut, perwakilan masyarakat, perwakilan perusahaan, dan pemerintah daerah. Data GPS yang kami kumpulkan sebelumnya telah merekam kawasan hutan yang digunakan oleh masyarakat Punan Batu, dan menjadi kontribusi yang sangat penting dalam diskusi ini. Luaran proyek ini juga telah meningkatkan minat pers untuk menyorot tantangan yang dihadapi masyarakat dalam pers nasional Indonesia, seperti dua artikel yang ditulis untuk koran nasional KOMPAS oleh Ahmad Arif. (https://www.kompas.id/baca/ilmiah-populer/2022/03/14/punan-batu-pemburu-terakhir-kalimantan-yang-kian-terdesak and https://www.kompas.id/baca/humaniora/2022/09/04/kerusakan-hutan-dan-perubahan-iklim-mengancam-punan-batu).
22 – 26 Agustus 2022
Pertemuan pertama proyek MOBILE di Indonesia diadakan di Mochtar Riady Institute for Nanotechnology, dihadiri oleh kolaborator lokal dan internasional, dan merupakan serangkaian kegiatan seminar, diskusi, dan loka karnya. Seminar ini diberitakan oleh koran nasional, dan diskusinya merupakan peluang untuk berbagi dengan ilmuan lokal yang mempelajari tantangan yang dihadapi masyarakat pemburu-peramu di Indonesia. Kegiatan ini juga peluang untuk berdiskusi mengenai rencana mendatang terkait proyek, seperti kegiatan pengumpulan sampel dan analisis. Dua anggota tim dari Cambridge (Guy dan Hirzi) juga memberikan lokakarya selama 2 hari. Materi yang diberikan adalah mengenai genetika populasi. Lokakarya ini dihadiri oleh sejumlah ilmuwan lokal, dan merupakan kegiatan transfer ilmu. Terima kasih untuk semua orang yang terlibat untuk menyukseskan kegiatan ini!
