Workshop on Managing Biodiversity Database

Workshop Managing Biodiversity Database

Workshop on Managing Biodiversity Database: Solution toward Sustainable Global Biodiversity
November 17-18 , 2009, Hotel Horison, Semarang
Conducted by Jurusan Biologi, FMIPA, UNDIP

Indonesia is the second richest country in the world (behind Brazilia) in term of flora and fauna biodiversity. This richness makes Indonesia a crucial component of global environmental sustainability. However, forest conversion, forest fires, shifting cultivation, large-scale mining, wildlife hunting and trading, population growth and poverty, climate change, and lack of appropriate conservation management policies all contribute to habitat destruction and the consequent loss of biological diversity. Biodiversity loss could trigger enormous effects on health and wealth. There is a need to unify efforts from all fronts to save and conserve biodiversity. One of them is managing biodiversity database.

Up to now, only Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) through botanical and zoological museums who leads in managing Indonesian biodiversity by regularly documenting and preserving flora and fauna. However, there are many stake holders in Indonesia who has potential role in taking a part of these activities, such as: central and local government, universities, NGO and eco-tourism agency. However, there are still many weaknesses i.e., lack of human resource skill, and lack of documentation system.

This workshop was designed for experiences sharing of biodiversity information system from nationally and internationally expert in order to support biodiversity database.

Keynote Speaker:

  • Prof. Dr. Koji Nakamura, Deputy President, Professor and Director of Division of Biodiversity, Institute of Nature and Environmental Technology, Kanazawa University.
  • Prof, Dr. Yayuk R Suhardjono, Researcher of Zoology Division (Museum Zoologicum Bogoriense), Research Center for Biology, Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI).
  • National Biodiversity Information Network (NBIN).

The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) is now accepting applications for 2010 Conservation Awards. The CLP aims to promote the development of emerging conservation leaders and equip them with the capacity to address the most pressing conservation issues of our time. We do this by providing small grants, training, mentoring and networking opportunities, where award winners gain practical skills and experience and develop leadership capabilities through the implementation of projects focused on high-priority biodiversity conservation issues.
