Globally there are thirty-five biodiversity hotspots, covering only 2.3 percent of the Earth’s surface, but supporting more than half of the world’s endemic plant species and nearly 43% of endemic bird, mammal, reptile, and amphibian species . Indonesia is considered among one of the world’s 17 megadiverse countries and is home to two of the biodiversity hotspots: Sundaland and Wallacea. The Wallacea hotspot has a total land area of 33.8 million hectares and provides livelihoods for around 30 million individuals within regional development programs that results in global economic benefits, however this ongoing growth is also negatively impacting the environment in a variety of ways. For example, both regional population growth and changes in land use patterns has resulted in widespread habitat loss, with further environmental degradation projected as the region continues to experience rapid growth that prioritizes short-term economic gains over long-term sustainability . Moreover, government policies and resource management schemes that have supplanted traditional management systems are introducing new issues stemming from poor monitoring, limited capacity and a lack of political will.
As identified in the GEF-7 Biodiversity Strategy, the five main direct drivers of biodiversity loss are: habitat change, overexploitation and unsustainable use (including illegal wildlife trade - IWT), invasive alien species, climate change, and pollution (The GEF). The goal of the GEF-7 biodiversity focal area strategy is to maintain globally significant biodiversity in landscapes and seascapes. To achieve this goal, GEF investments contribute to objectives identified in the CBD COP 13 Guidance to the GEF, including addressing direct drivers to protect habitats and species and further developing biodiversity policy and institutional frameworks.
Flores, East Nusa Tenggara Province is home to several endangered and critically endangered species, some of which are regionally endemic, such as: Flores hawk-eagle (Nisaetus floris), yellow-crested cockatoo (Cacatua sulphurea), largetooth sawfish (Pristis pristis), Tenggara hill myna (Gracula venerate), and Schmutz's worm snake (Indotyphlops schmutzi) . On top of these endangered species, Flores supports a small extant population of Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis). The Komodo dragon is a globally threatened species classified as Vulnerable (VU) by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which is endemic to Flores and can be found in Komodo National Park (KNP) as well as two areas on the Flores mainland, one on the western peninsula (e.g. Wae Wuul) and the other on the north coast (e.g. Longos Island and Riung) . Despite its small range on the island of Flores, an improvement in management schemes tailored towards the protection of the Komodo dragon is needed to ensure the species is not downgraded from its current VU status, signifying its fall closer to extinction.
Furthermore, some of these species are specifically endemic to the island of Flores, making conservation efforts on the island critical for the survival of several endangered bird and mammalian species, including in addition, the Flores crow (Corvusflorensis), Flores hanging parrot (Loriculus pusillus), Flores monarch (Monarchasacerdotum) and Flores scops-owl (Otus alfredi), Flores shrew (Suncus mertensi), Hainald’s Flores Island rat (Rattus hainaldi), and Paula’s long-nosed rat (Paulamys naso) . These species are highly vulnerable to the pressures of: habitat degradation, landscape changes, overexploitation, climate change, illegal hunting, and other harmful human activities. The marine habitat around Flores, and the KNP, in particular includes one of the richest marine environments including coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds, seamounts, and semi-enclosed bays. These habitats harbor more than 1,000 species of fish, some 260 species of reef-building coral, and 70 species of sponges, dugong, sharks, manta rays, and at least 14 species of whales, dolphins, and sea turtles. Strong daily tidal flows combine with nutrient rich upwelling from the depths of the Indian Ocean to create ideal conditions for thousands of species of coral and tropical fish to flourish.
The government of Indonesia through the Ministry of Environment and Forestry supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as GEF Agency developed a project concept titled ‘Investing in the Komodo Dragon and other globally threatened species in Flores (IN-FLORES). The Concept Note is endorsed by GEF Council in the December 2020 Work Programme and a Project Preparation Grant (PPG) was approved to develop the corresponding funding proposals and project document.
Table 1: brief description of The Project’s objective, grant amounts, components, geographies and PPG team composition
UNDP, in collaboration with DG Conservation and Natural Resources, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, the Government of Indonesia, seeks to engage a qualified International Specialist for UNDP-GEF Project Development to lead a team of consultants contributing to the delivery of interim PPG tasks (see below) and to develop individual funding proposals and project documents (ProDoc) for the Project, and the corresponding individual CEO endorsement requests (CEO ER) to be submitted for endorsement to the GEF.
The PPG will support all the preparatory work required to draft and finalize all the documentation required by the GEF for CEO Endorsement. The PPG phase will be underpinned by a participatory approach, with regular consultation and working meetings with all key PPG stakeholders throughout the PPG phase. Specific attention will be given to gender issues by undertaking a gender analysis to ensure optimal involvement of women in, and beneficiation from project interventions.
