PROGRAM PANEN AIR HUJAN MELALUI

PEMBANGUNAN SUMUR RESAPAN (SR)

DI KABUPATEN MALANG

(CCFI – IUWASH – YBUL)

LATAR BELAKANG

Kondisi Umum Kabupaten Malang

Secara geografis kabupaten Malang dibatasi 6 kabupaten: Pasuruan, Probolinggo, Lumajang, Kediri, Mojokerto, dan Blitar. Wilayah selatan berbatasan dengan Samudera Indonesia. Secara topografis, kabupaten Malang merupakan dataran tinggi yang dikelilingi beberapa gunung: bukit kapur, Tengger – Semeru, Kawi – Arjuno. Ada 9 gunung yang menjulang di Malang: Semeru, Bromo, Kawi, Kelud, Welirang, Panderman, Arjuno, Anjasmoro, Batok dan Kendeng. Kondisi topografi seperti ini menggambarkan keberadaan kawasan hutan, serta sumber air yang amat mencukupi. Sungai terbesar dan terpanjang di Jawa Timur, Brantas, hulunya berada di Kota Batu dan kabupaten Malang. Kabupaten ini mencakup wilayah seluas 3,500 km2 yang terdiri dari 33 kecamatan, 12 wilayah urban dan 378 pedesaan. Jumlah penduduk sekitar 2.5 juta jiwa. Laju pertumbuhan penduduk di kabupaten Malang cukup tinggi, sekitar 2.14%.

Salah satu dampak signifikan dari pertumbuhan penduduk adalah terus dibutuhkannya lahan baik untuk pertanian maupun pemukiman. Perubahan tata guna lahan ini termasuk penggundulan hutan, sehingga seringkali mengabaikan daya dukung lingkungan, Dengan demikian, banyak mata air yang kemudian berkurang debitnya secara drastis. Dari sekitar 870 mata air di kabupaten Malang, sepertiga sudah berkurang debitnya secara drastis, dan banyak sudah dalam kondisi kritis. Salah satu dampak langsung adalah berkurangnya layanan PDAM Malang yang melayani lebih dari 90,000 pelanggan. Pemerintah Daerah sudah berupaya mengembalikan debit mata air yang mengalami degradasi tersebut, namun masih banyak yang perlu ditingkatkan lagi.

Upaya untuk mengembalikan daya dukung sumber air antara lain termasuk penghijauan wilayah imbuhan air (recharge areas), namun dampaknya akan makan waktu lama. Sedangkan untuk mendapatkan hasil yang lebih cepat, salah satunya adalah membuat sumur resapan (SR) untuk dapat segera memperkaya urat-urat air dalam tanah (akifer) sehingga diharapkan dapat lebih cepat menambah debit ke mata air. Areal yang dipilih sebagai ujicoba untuk program ini ada dua: mata air Ubalan di Ngajum; dan mata air Polaman dan Mlaten di Lawang.

Lokasi pembangunan SR di mata air Ubalan meliputi wilayah imbuhan air di desa Balesari, kecamatan Ngajum; sedangkan wilayah imbuhan air untuk dua mata air: Polaman dan Mlaten meliputi 3 desa di Lawang: Kalirejo, Bedali dan Toyomarto. Wilayah imbuhan air (recharge areas) merupakan wilayah kerja program, dimana minimum 800 unit SR akan dibangun bersama masyarakat. Partisipasi masyarakat sangat diharapkan karena SR ini akan dibangun di pekarangan mereka. Disamping memperbanyak debit mata air, SR telah terbukti memperbanyak air di sumur2 masyarakat dimana SR dibangun.

PROGRAM

Program Sumur Resapan (SR) merupakan kerjasama tiga pihak: Coca-Cola Foundation Indonesia (CCFI), Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (IUWASH) dari USAID; dan Yayasan Bina Usaha Lingkungan (YBUL) sebagai pelaksana program. Program ini akan berlangsung selama setahun, selesai sekitar bulan September 2015. Lokasi kegiatan difokuskan di tiga mata air: Ubalan (desa Balesari, kecamatan Ngajum), Polaman dan Mlaten (desa: Kalirejo, Bedali, dan Toyomarto, kec. Lawang). Hasil utama program adalah terbangunnya minimal 800 unit SR berkapasitas @ 8 m3 di wilayah imbuhan air dari ketiga mata air tersebut. Pendekatan yang digunakan adalah mendorong partisipasi masyarakat untuk ikut membangun SR dalam rangka melestarikan air bersih mereka. Dalam beberapa hal akan dipertimbangkan pelaksanaan konsep imbal jasa lingkungan. Pada awal program akan dilakukan diskusi dan konsultasi intensif dengan masyarakat calon partner program, melalui berbagai media misalnya diskusi terfokus (focus group discussions), pertemuan masyarakat (community meetings), ataupun temu warga (community gatherings). Esensi program adalah mengajak masyarakat untuk aktif melakukan konservasi air di wilayah mereka.

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP Print

YBUL is presently moving into the social entrepreneurship discourse. Consistent with its primary missions in developing environment-based businesses, YBUL promotes environment-based businesses at community level.

Social entrepreneurship is the process of pursuing innovative solutions to social problems. More specifically, social entrepreneurs adopt a mission to create and sustain social value. They pursue opportunities to serve this mission, while continuously adapting and learning. They draw upon appropriate thinking in both the business and nonprofit worlds and operate in all kinds of organizations: large and small; new and old; religious and secular; nonprofit, for-profit, and hybrid (Wikipedia)

As a not-for-profit organization, YBUL is adopting the small and community based businesses development. Yet we believe that many studies show that small businesses contribute to strengthening local economy:

Many small businesses also possess the ability to respond and adapt quickly to changing economic climates. This is due to the fact that small businesses are often very customer-oriented. Many local customers will remain loyal to their favorite small businesses in the midst of an economic crisis. This loyalty means that small businesses are often able to stay afloat during tough times, which can further strengthen local economies. Small businesses also accumulate less revenue than larger corporations, meaning they may have less to lose in times of economic crisis.

(http://smallbusiness.chron.com/important-small-businesses-local-economies-5251.html)

YBUL believes that development projects (at community level) that are directed toward socio-environmental quality improvement should be managed in ways that economic considerations come into place. For examples, we implement community-based projects, which are managed using entrepreneurial principles. For examples:

· in order to conserve a national park, alternative income generation through development of small businesses of the community living surrounding the park, is promoted, engaged and improved;

· in order to sustainably provide clean water services to local community, a business entity at village level is yet to be established so that revenue can be generated for operating, maintaining and repairing the clean water system, to make it even more sustainable;

· in order to promote sustainability of biogas generation from cow manure, bio-slurry as the bi-products of the gas needs to be marketed, so that economic incomes can be generated to create incentive systems for the biogas reactors developers and owners.

YBUL is committed to innovatively promote and develop projects under the social entrepreneurship contextual framework, to achieve its missions. Many issues are already put into concept papers, such as: mangrove conservation through strengthening local women cooperative; green trading concept between waste processing centers along Ciliwung river and low income apartment households in Jakarta; strengthening community-based businesses for improving health services (desa Siaga).

We would welcome any financial donors to implement these projects, especially in creating pilots for further replication and expansion.

 
STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY INITIATIVES IN BENER MERIAH COMMUNITY LEARNING CENTER Print

 

BENER MERIAH, ACEH

Comparative Study on Animal Husbandry: A comparative study was organized in early August 2010 to bring a group of 9 persons (especially from project community group members) to Stabat (goat farming and organic fertilizer production) and dairy goat breeding in Pematang Siantar, North Sumatra to learn how to raise goats (as well as for dairy purposes), process organic fertilizer from goat’s wastes as well as applying business dimension into the husbandry. The study also established a farmer-to-farmer consultation approach, so that breeders can exchange knowledge and skills.

The group visited Stabat Tisata, a goat farm which produces wool and organic fertilizer, to learn various knowledge and skills on goat dairy farm practices. The relatively high economic value generated from the organic compost (based on goat dung), sold at around Rp 500 – 1000/kg of local organic fertilizer (able to produce around 400 tons/month), has attracted the visiting farmers. The composting technique uses locally available materials as decomposter such as: papaya, pineapple, banana, bamboo shoot, rice water, coconut water, as well as intestines from local slaughter house. The group also visited a dairy goat farm in Pematang Siantar. Business on goat milk could reach a minimum income of Rp 200,000 per day, plus additional income from selling goats.

The brief comparative study has resulted in increased enthusiasm among participants especially in better understanding of the high economic values of goat breeding activities resulted from production of goat milk and organic fertilizer. Another lesson learned was a new insight that farmers need to work together, e.g. in a form of cooperative, to increase their bargaining power and marketing strategy.

Collaboration with Coftea Corner: CLC is initiating a collaboration with a small in size yet big in ideas café, namely: Coftea Corner, located in Ravindo Building, Jakarta. The café is just established by students of a graduate business school who are experimenting a real business. The difference these students are making is the social dimension of coffee business. They are committed to work with CLC in a symbiotic business relationship: CLC is supplying a high grade organic Gayo coffee with moderate price; and Coftea Corner returns an amount of money to CLC as contribution to support the CLC’s operating cost. In addition to this, from every cup of coffee Coftea Corner sells, Rp 100 will be allocated in a certain account and returned directly to coffee farmers as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) account. The scheme is being initiated by YBUL.
