The Quality of Papuan Young Human Resources Determines the Nation’s Future Fate


By: Matrthinus Nare*

Papuan young people as relay holders or the next generation have a very important role in determining the fate of their own region. In fact, not only that, the quality of Bumi Cenderawasih’s young human resources (HR) also contributes to determining whether the future fate of this nation is good or bad.

This is because this nation is certainly not only founded on a few regions or islands, but actually all regions, even the most remote areas in Indonesia, including Papua, are an integral part of the country.

Thus, whatever and however developments occur in Papua, they will definitely have an impact, either directly or indirectly, on the future sustainability of this nation. This is especially true when it comes to the quality of young human resources as the nation’s next generation.

It cannot be denied that efforts to continue to improve the quality of Human Resources (HR) in Bumi Cenderawasih are something that must continue to be intensified by various parties.

Several things that can be done to further improve the quality of Papua’s human resources include reducing the prevalence of stunting which is part of the impact of extreme poverty in the region.

Realizing how serious the threat of stunting is, the Central Papua Provincial Government (Pemprov) immediately made a strong commitment to providing improved quality of services for Family Planning (KB) and Human Resources (HR), while continuing to maintain cross-sector cooperation.

Central Papua Province Inspector, Samuel Rihi said that in an effort to improve the quality of human resources there, they continue to promote health promotion.

Due to the seriousness of the strong commitment from the Central Papua Provincial Government, the Head of the National Population and Family Planning Agency (BKKN) of the Republic of Indonesia, dr. Hasto Wardoyo welcomed this strong commitment.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Regent of Nabire, Ismail Djamaluddin, expressed his high appreciation and admitted that a concrete manifestation of the central government’s attention to efforts to improve the quality of life of the people in Papua has been realized, especially in facing challenges in the form of stunting rates which are still a chore there.

In the midst of the hope of moving towards the vision of an Advanced Indonesia, of course this country still has several challenges, including challenges found in remote areas such as Papua where there are often social problems there.

To be able to overcome this, it actually requires a very appropriate approach, one of which is a scientific approach that can be accounted for as well as active participation from universities in creating young human resources (HR) who are experts and able to overcome problems in society.

Data shows that social problems in Indonesia include 15.5 million poor families, 3.2 million houses that are uninhabitable, 134 districts and cities that are prone to social conflict and several others.

Of course, these various social problems, including several problems in Papua, will not be resolved optimally if they are not accompanied by a comprehensive or holistic and integrated approach.

The Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture (Menko PMK), Muhadjir Effendy, said that the fate of the future and progress of the Indonesian nation in its golden year, namely 2045, is of course in the hands of the current young generation.

Therefore, young human resources (HR) must be prepared as early as possible for their quality and competitiveness, especially young people who live in remote areas such as Papua. The reason is that Bumi Cenderawasih actually has enormous potential to have a young generation of future national leaders.

These young people must really prepare to face the future and become the next leaders of this country. Moreover, young people actually have no past experience, but they are actually a generation that is very rich in future experience.

The nature of young people is usually much sharper in being able to see the future when compared to older human resources. As the next generation, young people have increasingly difficult challenges to be able to continue the development efforts of previous leaders, as well as perfecting all the things that have been done in the past.

Therefore, young people must be aware of how important their existence is and how much potential they have so that they are able to prepare themselves as best as possible to become the next generation.

The Indonesian Government has intensified many efforts and programs to help improve the quality of young human resources, including in Papua. For example, with efforts to address the youth crisis in the agricultural sector which clearly has the potential to threaten national and even global food security, the Government and Food and Agriculture (FAO) have agreed to provide technical assistance for youth empowerment.

Not only does it rely on human resources in several regions, but Indonesia is one unit consisting of various regions, including Papua. So the qualities possessed by young people in Bumi Cenderawasih clearly also determine what the future fate of this nation will be like.
