The Council of Indigenous Peoples would hold a two-day “Workshop for Personnel Engaging in Plan of Logging Ban Eco-Compensation for Lands Reserve for Indigenous Peoples” between Jun. 26 and 27, 2018. In the afternoon of 26th, and director Icyang Parod addressed the speech in person and encouraged about 150 undertakers and inspectors from 11 counties, 51 village (township, city and district) offices. It was hoped that, through the courses of the workshop, the professional knowledge and functions of forest conservation, tree species identification, emergency safety and survival in the wild of relevant practitioners engaging in Indigenous Peoples Reserve Relief Compensation Plan could be strengthened; also, through relevant regulatory discussions, the service quality and administrative efficacy could also be improved.

Director Icyang Parod demonstrated that Plan of Logging Ban Eco-Compensation for Lands Reserve for Indigenous Peoples was a practice of compensation on land restriction of Indigenous Peoples specified in Article 21 of Indigenous Peoples Basic Act, thereby improving the life of indigenous people. Last year, more than 27,000 indigenous people were compensated, and in the past two years, the Plan of Logging Ban Eco-Compensation for Lands Reserve for Indigenous Peoples was set at NTD 3.5 billion to protect more than 38,000 hectares of forest, producing over NTD 15 billion benefits for Taiwan’s carbon sequestration, water conservation, disaster prevention, and disaster reduction. This year, the approved area of compensation was 48,520 hectares, and the number of people who received compensation was expected to hit a record. The estimated economic benefits would exceed NTD 8.6 billion. Behind this Plan, there was a group of employees who assisted the tribes to apply for and go to the spot to detect and solve the doubts of the tribes. Because of this group of people's silent efforts, the Reserve Relief Compensation Plan could be successively carried out to achieve the national land justice of Indigenous Peoples.

Director Icyang further stated that it was the third year since the Plan of Logging Ban Eco-Compensation for Lands Reserve for Indigenous Peoples was carried out. The areas for compensation increased year by year. In addition to the basic compensation, how to further improve the indigenous people’ life had become a major issue for the Council when it considered the future development orientation. Apart from arranging the administrative processing, identification of tree species, emergency safety and field survival for the undertakers and inspectors, the lecturers were also invited to lecture on the economic policies, legal system and development potential of the forest economy, hoping that different sparks would be stirred up in the exchange of knowledge and a new chapter would be created for the Plan of Logging Ban Eco-Compensation for Lands Reserve for Indigenous Peoples.
