“Tingkatkan Efektifitas dan Akuntabilitas Penanggulangan Covid-19, IBC: Minta Pemda Se-Sultra melakukan Refocussing dan Realokasi APBD sebesar Rp1,06 trilyun Untuk Tangkal Covid-19 Secara Transparan”

Wabah virus corona diseases-19 (Covid-19) semakin meluas dan tersebar di 29 provinsi se Indonesia. Per 28 Maret 2020, jumlah kasus terkonfirmasi positif Covid-19 mencapai 1.155 kasus dimana 994 orang dalam perawatan, 59 orang sembuh dan 102 orang meninggal. Provinsi Sulawesi Tenggara merupakan salahsatu daerah yang terdampak wabah Covid-19. Per 27 maret 2020, jumlah kasus positif terkonfirmasi 3 orang, pasien dalam pengawasan (PDP) sebanyak 17 orang dan orang dalam pemantauan (ODP) mencapai 2.475 orang (sumber: inilahsultra.com, 27 maret 2020).

Mengantisipasi penyebaran wabah ini, Pemerintah Pusat telah menginstuksikan kepada seluruh pemerintah daerah untuk melakukan langkah-langkah preventif tanggap darurat Covid-19 dengan membentuk tim gugus tugas daerah dan melakukan realokasi APBD untuk kegiatan pencegahan dan penanganan Covid-19. Namun dari pantauan IBC, hingga saat ini belum banyak daerah termasuk Pemrov Sultra yang menegaskan berapa anggaran yang disediakan terkait penanganan Covid-19 ini. Minimnya dukungan anggaran menunjukkan betapa kurang seriusnya Pemda di Sultra mengantisipasi dan menangani ganasnya penyebaran virus corona ini yang mengancam keselamatan jiwa dan perekonomian masyarakat Sultra.

Padahal pemerintah pusat telah mengeluarkan sejumlah kebijakan yang membolehkan Pemda untuk melakukan realokasi belanja daerah dan refocussing program dan kegiatan untuk kegiatan pencegahan dan penanganan Covid-19. Berdasarkan Peraturan Menteri Keuangan No. 19 Tahun 2020 tentang Penyaluran dan Penggunaan DBH, DAU, dan DID TA 2020 dalam rangka Penanggulangan Covid-19, Keputusan Menteri Keuangan No. 6 Tahun 2020 tentang Penyaluran DAK Fisik Bidang Kesehatan dan Dana Bantuan Kesehatan (BOK) Dalam Rangka Pencegahan dan/atau Penanganan Covid-19, dan Permendagri 20 Tahun 2020 tentang Percepatan Penanganan Covid-19 dilingkungan Pemda, terdapat beberapa sumber dana di APBD yang dapat direalokasi/refocusing antara lain: DAU Tambahan Bantuan Pendanaan Kelurahan, DBH CHT, Dana Insentif Daerah, DAK Fisik Reguler subbidang pelayanan rujukan, DAK Fisik Penugasan  subbidang pengendalian penyakit dan RS rujukan, dan DAK Non Fisik bidang kesehatan pos Bantuan Operasional Kesehatan (BOK).

Dari hasil tracking budget yang dilakukan IBC, terdapat potensi anggaran sekitar Rp1,06 triliun dalam APBD Provinsi Sultra dan APBD pada 17 daerah di Sultra yang dapat direalokasi atau refocussing untuk mendukung pelaksanaan kegiatan pencegahan dan penanganan Covid-19 (Anggaran per daerah dapat dilihat di grafik dibawah ini).

Selain sumber dana diatas, Pemda juga dapat mendorong desa-desa untuk melakukan aksi pencegahan Covid-19 dengan membentuk relawan desa lawan Covid-19 dan melakukan perggeseran belanja desa pada sub bidang lainnya untuk penanggulangan bencana/keadaan darurat dan mendesak desa serta kegiatan padat karta tunai desa dan sub bidang lai sesuai Surat Edaran Menteri Desa PDTT No. 8 Tahun 2020 tentang Desa Tanggap Covid-19 dan Penegasan Padat Karya Tunai Desa.

Antisipasi pencegahan melalui penyediaan sejumlah Alkes dan Alat Pelindung Diri (APD) secara memadai sangat diperlukan dalam kondisi yang tidak menentu saat ini. Apalagi di Sultra hanya terdapat 1 Rumah Sakit Rujukan Covid-19, dimana aksesnya sulit dijangkau bagi masyarakat di sejumlah daerah kepulauan. Beberapa jenis pengadaan Alkes ruang Isolasi COVID-19 yang diperlu tersedia layanan kesehatan dan rumah sakit rujukan, meliputi Mobile X-Ray, Ventilator (transport, statis bagging, compressor), Intubasi set, Syringe Pump, Infusion Pump, dan Suction Pump sesuai Kepmenkes No: HK.01.07/Menkes/215/2020.

Untuk itu Koalisi Masyarakat Sipil Peduli Covid-19 Sultra mendesak Gubernur Sultra dan para Kepala Daerah bersama DPRD untuk:

  1. Melakukan langkah-langkah realokasi/recofusing APBD tahun 2020 untuk menambah anggaran tanggap darurat Covid-19. Hal ini untuk mendukung efektifitas percepatan pencegahan dan penanganan wabah Covid-19.
  2. Mengelola anggaran tanggap darurat Covid-19 secara transparan dan akuntabel.

Benefits of Planning

It’s normal to hear time management discussed in business circles; yet, it is a topic that can be of great benefit to everybody. Time is a challenge for all of us, whether we’re business people, workers, students or stay at home moms or dads. There seems to be less time in today’s world, and that’s why it’s a lot more important to learn how to properly manage our time. In this article, we are going to be discussing a few key reasons why time management is so important.

A big benefit of time management is just how that it boosts your productivity. It is something that almost everybody hopes to be able to do. Seldom do you hear of individuals who feel that they’ve got adequate time to do the things they need and wish to do. In lots of instances, the problem is not not enough time but rather the fact that you do not have an efficient way of managing your time. Time management shows you how to set priorities, and to focus on how much time you’re wasting every day. The idea is not really to put yourself under more pressure to try and do more, but to utilize your time more wisely so you appear to have more of it.

One positive advantage of time management is decreased levels of stress. Not having enough time is one of the main reasons we experience stress. Think about how tense you feel if you are worrying about being late for a scheduled visit or if you’re stuck in traffic. These issues relate to time, and if you have this type of situation often you could probably benefit from some training in time management. Learning how to control schedule so that overwhelmed us and become an issue indicates that you are supervising your time efficiently. We often believe that the solution to our problems is doing things faster, but it could be even better and more relaxing if we learn how to manage our time better.

Time management doesn’t just includes boosting your productivity and efficiency; you also want to feel more pleasure and a better quality of life. Time is an important component of life and so we feel better about our lives when we have the ability to control our time. Conversely, feeling that we’re running out of time can create an overall feeling that we aren’t good in some part of life. Those who are genuinely successful are aware that time management is a crucial skill they have to get good at. It could be the one determining factor that lets you live in the moment and appreciate your life instead of feeling that time is a merciless boss.

Time management is very significant in our present times, even more so than in previous decades. Existing technology allows us to do things faster than before and yet we feel forced to continually increase the pace. As an example, we continue to have difficulty keeping track of the large number of available information even with computers and other gadgets that are extremely powerful. Time management is the component that can give us a sense of control over time so we can quit rushing and loosen up.

Finding Oneself in Art Gallery

Decorating can be one of the most exciting times during your experience as a homeowner. Not only are you creating the essence of your home, you are also adding your very own personal touch and style.

One of the easiest ways to add unique spice to an ordinarily drab room—incorporate exceptional artwork .“Many of my clients are simply amazed at how effective a colorful painting can be at bringing new life to a room that has become tired,” says Matthew Johnston, an artist known for his vibrant Tall Tulips paintings.

An art museum or art gallery is a building or space for the exhibition of art, usually visual art. Museums can be public or private, but what distinguishes a museum is the ownership of a collection. Paintings are the most commonly displayed art objects; however, sculpture, decorative arts, furniture, textiles, costume, drawings, pastels, watercolors, collages, prints, artists’ books, photographs, and installation art are also regularly shown. Although primarily concerned with providing a space to show works of visual art, art galleries are sometimes used to host other artistic activities, such as performance art, music concerts, or poetry readings.

The term is used for both public galleries, which are non-profit or publicly owned museums that display selected collections of art. On the other hand, private galleries refers to the commercial enterprises for the sale of art. However, both types of gallery may host traveling exhibits or temporary exhibitions including art borrowed from elsewhere.
In broad terms, in North American usage the word gallery alone often implies a private gallery, while a public gallery is more likely to be described as an art museum. In British and Commonwealth usage, the word gallery alone implies a public gallery, while a private or commercial gallery will be distinguished using those terms, and the word museum alone is generally understood to refer to institutions holding collections of historic, archaeological or scientific artefacts, rather than of fine art.

Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest is the highest mountain in the world. It is not everyone’s cup of tea to assent it. However, trekking to its base camp is possible and the task is becoming increasingly easier with increase in its popularity and, therefore, facilities.

It is most definitely not a walk in the park, but if you possess a sense of adventure, will and a normally healthy body, you too can be a part of this legend. You too can enjoy the beautiful landscapes, nature and interesting culture of the Everest region.

Here is a guide to how you could go about making this dream a reality and, if you would want to.

Everest region was only moderately affected by the devastating Earthquake that hit Nepal on 25th April and 12th May.

Some minor landslides had crossed the trail to EBC but the villagers were quick in clearing it. After all, the trek route is firstly the means of transport for the inhabitants of the region.

Also, according to the team of experts sent by Tourism Agency Association of Nepal (TAAN) and engineers from Miyamoto international, all the suspension bridges to EBC are intact and safe to traverse.

It was mostly the teahouses that were affected. All three teahouses in Tengboche collapsed. Many of them in Phakding, Monjo, Jorsale and Pheriche were destroyed while Deboche, Dingboche and Gorakshep were unharmed. The remaining villages endured little damage.

Teahouse owners reported that they would be up and running by the September of 2015. September to November is the peak season for Everest Base Camp trek.

Indeed, EBC trek was opened and declared safe for trekking by September. The trek was possible without any added difficulty.

Though things have gone back to normal, there were very less trekkers this year. Locals hope that the numbers too will go back up to normal from 2016 onwards.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp in Spring

Spring is one of the best seasons to trek to EBC. Clear sky and moderate temperature aside, spring offers an array of beautiful flowers. This includes Nepal’s national flower rhododendron that will make your hike uphill very pleasant.

Spring is also climbers’ season and one can see many colorful tents pitched on the base camp.

In Nepal, spring runs from March to May. However, late May may see some clouds. Mid-March is really the perfect time in terms of weather and April in terms of rhododendron and other flowers. These are also the busy times and will most probably be crowded.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp in Summer/ Monsoon

From June to August is monsoon, though the clouds stay around till mid September.

Monsoon is not a good time do EBC trek. First, views will be blocked most of the time due to rain clouds. Trails will be muddy. It can rain anytime and the next village could be still an hour away. And, snow fall or snow storm at higher elevations.

Another problem is the delays. Flights to and from Lukla can be delayed for as long as a week. Even buses and jeeps can be delayed. In fact, they can get stuck in the soft mud en route and it is a real hassle.

The only good news is that leeches aren’t a problem in Everest. However, all things considered, it is better to travel to rain shadow areas like Mustang, Dolpo etc. during monsoon.
