Introduction

*) This event is free of charge for graduate students (Ind.: Mahasiswa Pascasarjana)

 

The 2030 Sustainable Development’s agenda was agreed by the 193 States Members of the United Nations. Sustainable development and sustainability cannot be separated since sustainability is considered as the long term goal of sustainable development. Therefore the concept of sustainability is not a new issue in global environmental world. This holistic approach considers the ecological, social, and economic aspects in order to fulfil present needs without compromising the ability of future generation.
Biological diversity or biodiversity, on the other hand, is categorized as key component for sustainable development since the condition of biodiversity can be directly or indirectly contributes in achieving sustainable development’s target. However, despite knowing about biodiversity’s significance, human activities have been reported to have effects on massive extinction of the biodiversity. It is unfortunate that the loss of biodiversity is irreversible. Therefore, conserving biodiversity, without hesitation, is unavoidable and demanding our attention. We need approaches that enable us to translate the problems into solutions. An approach that needs a fundamental understanding, that it takes more than a single discipline to solve complicated problems.

This conference will facilitate relevant works related to many aspect of biodiversity as well as “interdisciplinary” as a potential approach to pursue sustainable management for biological diversity in local, regional and global area.
