4)  DECLARED AS CONSERVATION PROVINCE, WEST PAPUA FLOODED WITH FOREIGN AID

Manokwari, Jubi – West Papua Province succeeded in collecting overseas aid funds of 18 million US dollars to preserve the environment in the area of ​​coral reefs in this area.
This cannot be separated from the status of West Papua as a conservation province and the existence of the world’s coral reef triangle in Raja Ampat, Kaimana, and Teluk Wondama.

“The Kehati Foundation will be managing the foreign aid fund, and now there are some foreign donors and funds raised about 18 million US dollars,” Charley said.
He expressed that cooperation with Yayasan Kehati was conducted to optimize the management of Raswan Bloe Abadi area.
It is expected that the presence of Kehati and donor assistance can optimize the efforts of environmental conservation and community empowerment in the area of ​​the world’s coral reef triangle in the area.
“The world’s coral reef triangle is located in Raja Ampat, Kaimana and Teluk Wondama, and we are entrusted to Kehati to manage the relief funds,” he said.
Charley said that in 2018 there will be an international conference. It is hoped that Kehati can create new innovations on biodiversity conservation and community empowerment in the area.
He added that as many as 18 million US dollars of foreign aid funds are currently stored in Singapore. Interest from the fund will be used to finance conservation activities in West Papua.
