Taro Flour Making Workshop Launched by TTM

On April 19th and 20th, the Taiwan Technical Mission (TTM) launched a Taro Flour Making Workshop at the Training Center of TTM in Nekken, Aimeliik. TaiwanICDF, the headquarters of TTM, invited a food processing expert, Dr. Yung-Ho Chang, to conduct the workshop that enables Palauan to find a way to use modern machines to prolong the shelf life of taros. The specialist of the Palau Community College, Mr. Dalton Thomas, also demonstrated the making of some foods using taro flour. Dr. Chang got the Ph.D. of Food Technology in Iowa State University, and is currently the Professor of Department of Food and Nutrition of Providence University in Taiwan, specializing in food chemistry, food processing and cereal chemistry.

Faustina K. Rehuher-Marugg, Minister of State, Counselor of the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan), Peter Hsieh, and Mr. Fernando Sengebau, Director of the Bureau of Agriculture, attended the first day morning’s opening ceremony. Minister Marugg gave remarks in opening ceremony. She mentioned that Palau can upgrade the processing technique of taro and can manufacture high quality products to sell to tourists, so Palau farmers can improve their livelihood through restarting the farming of their abandoned taro field and producing taro for processed products.

Over 30 participants attended this workshop from different organizations, including: Palau Resource Institute (PRI), Dilisor Agriculture Association in Ngarchelong (DAAN), Palau-Taiwan Farmers’ Association (PTFA), Palau Organic Growers’ Association (POGA), women representatives of Melekeok, Ngaraard and Ngeremlengui.

During the workshop, Dr. Chang introduced the factors affecting the making of taro flour and demonstrated the facility operation. He also shared the experience of food processing in Taiwan. All the participants, including the Minister of State, were satisfied with the information of processing technique which they learned in this workshop. Due to space limit, this term of workshop was available only for members of some associations. The public can attend the similar workshops in the 3rd and 4th quarters this year held by the TTM.

FOREVER YOUNG IN YOUTH WEEK

The FOREVER YOUNG Night Market on March 16th, held at Ernguul Central Park, was considered one of the best Night Markets to date, with exciting entertainment to draw in a large crowd.

Beginning with Live Band Entertainment by OP, Sheldon and Malo, the audience was soon reminiscing to the sounds of guitar and mandolin played by Ngirchoureng, a duo whose specialty is bringing back the old Palauan music from as early as the 1930’s. Jim Geselbracht, a former Peace Corps to Palau during the 1960’s, and his mandolin player Tony Phillips, had the crowd singing along to some of the old school songs.

There were dance performances by the Ngiwal Dancers (traditional), Bonitas Dancers (contemporary), and the most lively was the contemporary dance performance by the Malii Stars. Cultural demonstrations included weaving by Ms. Amanda Yukiwo, Wood Carving by Mr. Joseph Lee Mad, and Coconut Husking Demo by Ngara Ubeng.

Throughout the evening, 177 tourists and 3,253 locals visited the Night Market to watch the performances and find a bite to eat. As the Night Markets offer the experience for tourists to mix and mingle with locals, we continue to invite the local population to enjoy the entertainment, sing from your heart, or sell and display your products. The next Night Market will happen on Friday, April 13th so register early! For more information, contact Kate Mad or Api-Sai Wasisang at Palau Visitors Authority 488-1930/2793.

 

PICRC Board of Directors Approve PICRC’s 5 Year Strategic Plan: 2018 – 2023

Every five years, Palau International Coral Reef Center develops a strategic plan to guide its efforts for the next five years.  On May 20, 2018, the Palau International Coral Reef Center’s (PICRC) Board of Directors and senior management staff of PICRC, evaluated the progress of the last five years and the way forward for the next five years.  At the end of the two-day discussion, the Board of Directors approved the Center’s Five Year Strategic Plan that will run from 2018-2023.

The Strategic Plan outlines five goals that the Center will pursue in the next five years:  1) PICRC research initiatives have a positive impact on marine conservation policy; 2) PICRC research is conducted consistently to expand the understanding of marine and coastal management priorities in Palau and Micronesia to support conservation action; 3) PICRC is institutionally effective and efficient with proactive governance and leadership and all staff continue to build capacity and achieve excellence in their work; 4) PICRC will achieve greater financial stability with sufficient and consistent funding to operate as a Center of Excellence for coral reef research in Palau and Micronesia; and 5) The Palau Aquarium is an engaging and interactive activity for all visitors, by showcasing the value of Palau’s marine ecosystems and highlighting key management needs and conservation issues of Palau and the Region through its displays and attractions.

The development of the Strategic Plan was a long process, involving all the department staff at the Center. It began with initial discussions among the staff, followed by a meeting with the Board of Directors to further discuss the plan and get comments and inputs from them.  Throughout the process, the staff continued to improve upon the plan, making sure to incorporate comments and suggestions from the Board, as well as other staff members. Though it was a long and grueling process, it was necessary for all the staff to be involved to ensure that every voice was heard, so as to create a comprehensive Plan for the next five years.

The plan will help the Center meet the challenges of informing a rapidly developing marine based tourism economy, guiding the implementation of new science programs, and ensuring the continuation of monitoring needs. It also focuses efforts to build institutional and financial sustainability. The foundation of the 2018 to 2023 Strategic Plan is PICRC’s commitment to conducting research that is locally and regionally significant and that is directed towards the sustainable management and conservation in Palau and the world.
