Landscape Ecology for Sustainable Society

The research category of the landscape ecology, which researches the structure, functions, and the spatio-temporal changes of the ecological landscapes, has now been contributing to the human life and the shifts of the socio-economic paradigm. Global warming has been influencing the universal life patterns of the mankind which have been maintained in the past several hundreds of years. And it has been having the influences on the international social problems and economic problems. Although the diverse plans for adapting to the climate changes have been the topics of the conservations among the ecologists internationally, it is the reality that the speed of the changes of the environment has been quicker than the time it takes to complete the solutions. In order to maintain the sustainable earth and the sustainable society, the role of the landscape ecology has been coming to the fore. Especially, the theories and the methodologies of the landscape ecology have been applied to the multidisciplinary researches by going beyond the research category of ecology, including the maximization of the efficiencies of the land spaces, the management of the ecological space (habitats) in which the biological diversity can be maintained, the utilization of the resources that are absolutely needed by the human beings (Here, it is compressed to water, energy, and food), etc. and until reaching the human society. It is considered that, to that extent, the utilizations and the applications of the landscape ecology are very much needed for the diagnoses and the evaluations of the global environmental problems which have been proceeded with rapidly in the modernity.
This book is not comprised of any general remarks that explain the theories and the methods of the landscape ecology. Already, based on the basic theories of the landscape ecology, the writers have conducted the investigations on the farm villages, the cities, and the coastal ecosystems. And, through the space analyses and interpretations, the structure and functions of the landscapes were analyzed. Of course, in this book, too, the diverse ecosystems and the landscape ecological methodologies regarding the land use have been presented. However, the core of this book focuses more on what role the landscape ecology must play for the materialization of a sustainable society in the future. At the farm villages, the sustainable agriculture will be presented, and, at the cities, the discussions on the green networks and the energies will be proceeded with. Also, regarding the coasts and the seas, a thesis on the safety of the life zones of the residents adjacent to the sea and on the conservation of the island ecosystems will be presented. The sustainable society is a system that is formed by having the sustainable development as a basis. It is considered to be one aspect within a kind of a sustainable process with regard to which the natural world and the human world coexist and are in a symbiotic relationship harmoniously. In order to maintain the biodiversity, the reasonable adjustments of the human activities, like the use of the resources, are absolutely needed. Without the biological resources, the cultural diversity of the human beings, too, cannot exist. Consequentially, recently and internationally, there are a lot of the case examples that express the biocultural diversity by linking the biological diversity with the cultural diversity. In this book, the role of the landscape ecology as an academic link which can connect the two possible, if possible, is highly expected. It is, indeed, the biocultural landscape. It can be said that this concept, also, is the interconnection of the multidisciplinary spaces that must be dealt with in the modern landscape ecology. Through this book, it is intended to present a new directionality which can contribute to the sustainable society at the same time as the organization of the theories and the methods of the landscape ecology.



Management of Landscape Services for Improving Community Welfare in West Java, Indonesia


A sustainable management of landscape services is needed to resolve ecological problems in rural and urban landscapes, particularly in developing countries, such as Indonesia. A specific management for particular area such as homegarden has to be developed in order to improve utilization of landscape services based on community activities. Four classic landscape services, i.e. biodiversity conservation, carbon stock and sequestration, water resources management, and landscape beautification are approached inside intensively managed homegarden. The landscape ecology approach was conducted through micro-, meso-, and macro-scales to figure out the potential ecology-economy-social benefit for urban-rural landscape inside homegarden as a small-scale agroforestry landscape or usually called as “pekarangan”. A well planned and managed agroforestry landscape practices may suppress social, economical and ecological condition in rural marginal society and would improve the community welfare. Therefore, by managing pekarangan systems for landscape services, marginal communities would have the possibility to advance their asset of landscape services through plant biodiversity (H′), carbon stock (C), water resources utilization, and scenic beauty inside pekarangan. The aims of this research are to develop basic landscape service of plant biodiversity, carbon stock, water management and landscape beautification and to arrange recommendation for revitalizing pekarangan. The results show that pekarangan has diverse plant biodiversity (0.77–3.57) and diverse carbon stock (0.13–136.20 Mg/ha). Pekarangan also has the ability to utilize water effectively and at the same time contribute to provide amenity from its beautification for human well-being. Those landscape services provided by pekarangan could directly and indirectly improves the community welfare.

Tanda Bukti Lapor Kelahiran

7 12 2012

Umumnya anak yang lahir di luar negeri mendapatkan Surat Keterangan Lahir (SKL) dari Kedutaan Besar Republik Indonesia (KBRI) maupun dari Konsulat Jenderal Republik Indonesia (KJRI). Kebetulan anak saya lahir di Jepang dan mendapatkan SKL dari KJRI. Nah bagi yang bingung harus ngapain begitu sudah ada di Indonesia, saya akan share sedikit pengalaman mendapatkan Surat Tanda Bukti Lapor Kelahiran. Artinya, SKL anak kita sudah mendapatkan pengakuan setara dengan Akta Kelahiran. Jadi kita tidak perlu mengurus Akta Kelahiran lagi. So, SKLnya dijaga baik-baik ya.

Buat rekan-rekan PPI Jepang atau LN lainnya yang baru pulang dan membawa anak yang lahir di luar negeri, berikut prosedur untuk mengurus Tanda Bukti Lapor Kelahiran.

Dokumen yang dibutuhkan:

1. Paspor Orangtua dan Anak (asli dan fotocopy)

2. KK (asli dan fotocopy), jadi bawa dulu SKLnya ke Dinas Catatan Sipil untuk mendapatkan KK Baru.

3. Surat Nikah (asli dan fotocopy)

4. SKL KBRI/KJRI (asli dan fotocopy)

5. Surat Lahir dari Rumah Sakit (asli dan fotocopy).

Kebetulan saya berdomisili di Kota Bogor, so saya pergi ke Dinas Kependudukan dan Pencatatan Sipil Kota Bogor. Smeua dokumen saya bawa ke sana, dan diminta untuk mengisi form. Trus menunggu hingga beres.

Biayanya tigapuluh ribu rupiah. Ada sanksi administratif bila baru mengurus >30 hari sejak tanggal kembali sebesar duapuluh lima ribu rupiah.

Bagi mereka yang akan membawa keluarga dari Indonesia ke Jepang, silahkan mengikuti prosedur pembuatan Certificate of Eligibility (COE) hingga memperoleh VISA di bawah ini. Prosedur ini dibuat berdasarkan pengalaman di tahun 2010, bagi mereka yang memiliki pengalaman terbaru mohon memberikan komentarnya.

Sebelum datang ke Keimigrasin Jepang di Hiroshima City, mohon disiapkan dokumen sbb:

  1. Mengisi Application Form, bisa diminta ke Keimigrasian Jepang (Hiroshima city) pada saat tiba di sana, atau bisa juga download di:
  2. Copy Passport dari yang akan diundang (suami, istri dan atau anak).
  3. Copy Surat Nikah (suami/istri), dan terjemahannya ke dalam Bahasa Jepang.
  4. Copy Kartu Keluarga, dan terjemahannya ke dalam Bahasa Jepang.
  5. Bagi yang sudah memiliki anak perlu copy Akta Kelahiran Anak dan terjemahannya ke dalam Bahasa Jepang.
  6. Passport yang mengundang (asli + copy).
  7. Alien Card yang mengundang (asli + copy).
  8. Certificate of Scholarship (Surat keterangan dari pemberi beasiswa) (asli + copy).
  9. Pas Foto orang yang akan diundang (3 x 4 cm) berwarna 1 lembar (buat jaga-jaga mohon bawa lebih dari 1 lembar), diberi nama dan negara di bagian belakang foto.
  10. Certificate Student Asli, ini optional tapi dapat mempermudah proses penerbitan COE.
  11. Amplop yang sudah ditempeli perangko balasan 380 Yen (kaki kakitome = surat tercatat sederhana). Mohon dibeli di Kantor Pos terdekat saja terlebih dahulu, jadi ketika tiba di sana tidak perlu beli lagi. Amplop harus sudah ditulisi nama dan alamat kita. Amplop ini nanti akan digunakan oleh Keimigrasian Jepang untuk mengirimkan COE ke alamat kita kalau sudah jadi).

Sebaiknya bawa juga:

  1. Buku tabungan (yang digunakan pihak pemberi beasiswa mengirim beasiswa).
  2. Kartu asuransi kesehatan.

Tips dan Trik:
COE ASLI kemudian akan dikirimkan ke alamat kita berkisar 1 minggu hingga 2 bulan. Triknya supaya segera mendapatkan COE adalah dengan mencantumkan tanggal kedatangan keluarga lebih cepat dari yang direncanakan. Misalnya kedatangan keluarga awal Bulan Januari, maka di dalam aplikasi form dituliskan saja awal Bulan Desember, agar COE asli dapat kita peroleh lebih cepat. Karena COE asli ini perlu kita kirimkan lagi ke Indonesia yang memakan waktu 4-7 hari kerja.

Untuk keluarga yang ada di Indonesia, pada saat ke Kedutaan Besar Jepang, mohon disiapkan sbb:

  1. COE (asli + copy).
  2. Passport (asli + copy).
  3. KTP suami/istri/anak (asli + copy).
  4. Kartu Keluarga (asli + copy).
  5. Info Identitas kita untuk mengisi form aplikasi (seperti nama, alamat di jepang, lamanya studi, tgl kedatangan, nama pesawat, airport kedatangan, dll). Sebaiknya semua data ini sudah diberitahukan oleh pengundang kepada keluarga di Indonesia.
  6. Tips dan Triks: Dokumen fotokopian mohon disiapkan dari rumah (karena di dalamnya tidak ada mesin fotokopi).
  • Jam pemasukan berkas 08.00-11.00 WIB (mohon jangan terlambat, soalnya ngantri banget)
  • Jam pengambilan visa 13.00-.15.00 WIB (sekali lagi jangan terlambat).
  • Visa akan selesai dalam waktu 4 hari kerja. Biaya Rp. 300.000,-/orang dibayarkan pada saat pengambilan Visa.

Semoga bermanfaat…
