Paper Abstract

Four years have passed since the declaration of West Papua as the province of conservation. As a follow up to the declaration, the implementation of development in West Papua should refer to the following principles i.e. environmental protection, preservation of biodiversity, management of utilization of natural resources wisely and sustainably, and recovery of the livelihoods and management of important ecosystem that have been degraded. Identifying Environmental Sensitive Area (ESA) should be considered as one of the first steps to realize spatial planning for a conservation province that must prioritize protection zones. Multi criteria approach combined with participatory planning of multi stakeholders were applied for developing criteria. The criteria were selected based on biophysical aspects derived from regulation (Presidential Decree 32/1990 on Protected Areas Management) and were converted into boolean map. Then, landscape models were obtained from overlaid of those boolean map which identified the degree of sensitivity including highly, moderately, and slightly. All three ESA models produce varying percentages of highly sensitive areas at 82.80%; 59.12%; and 32.21% for ESA model-1, model-2, model-3, respectively. Although varied, but found the same three regencies dominated by highly sensitive areas namely the Teluk Bintuni, Kaimana, and Tambrauw regencies. Highly sensitive area of the ESA model will be proposed as a protection zone as either the first or second priority to contribute for reducing disaster risk. Finally, ESA model can be used for giving reccomendation the existing regional spatial plan (RTRW) and of course taking into account the existing conditions of land cover
