These are my current personal projects.
High Conservation Values ALS is a scheme to license lead HCV assessors to conduct high-quality HCV assessments in any region and commodity context. I am a Fully Licensed HCV Assessor since April 2016 and currently appointed as member of ALS Quality Panel to ensure that HCV reports in Bahasa Indonesia and English are consistently high quality and comply with the guidance of the HCVRN.

TBI is a community of Indonesian travelers who manage their blogs to share information on various interesting destinations in Indonesia. TBI’s members have so far been selected based on the spirit they show through each blog, the level of usefulness and uniqueness of the information they provide, as well as their aptitude in presenting the information through text, audio, and/or visual.

The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is the intergovernmental body which assesses the state of biodiversity and of the ecosystem services it provides to society, in response to requests from decision makers. From 2015 – 2018, I was a fellow for Chapter 1 (Introduction of the IPBES Asia Pacific Regional Assessment as a new UN platform for scientists and policy makers). For IPBES report, I did research, review and provide text, table or data on a wide range of subjects specifically policy and biodiversity in the Asia Pacific (AP). This AP IPBES report is part of global research project which provide policy relevant knowledge on biodiversity and ecosystem services to inform decision making in global governance. The fellowship I was doing was mentored by Dr. Sonali Senaratna Sellamuttu from IWMI – Laos (CLA Chapter 1, Report Co-Chair Asia Pacific Assessment).

Spatial prioritisation for High Conservation Values and High Carbon Stocks in a Human-Modified Tropical Landscape in Borneo
This project encapsulates recent studies in Borneo on Human Modified Tropical Landscape (HTML) and the implementation of Systematic Conservation Planning (SCP) (either methods or approaches used at global, national, local and or Management Units (MU). It is expected SCP can identify potential conservation areas as the basis of delineating potential new set aside areas at HTML in Borneo. This MSc dissertation project at DICE used spatial decision-support tools (i.e. Marxan and Zonation) and environmental features such as carbon, species, habitat, and ecosystem services, which could assess the effectiveness of High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS) toolkits to prioritise land of biodiversity importance. The result of dissertation could help local stakeholders or decision-makers to design better land use management in Borneo despite data limitation on socio-cultural impacts.
Policy Implementation Study of Biodiversity Clearing House Mechanism
in West Java Province, Indonesia
This is a MSc dissertation project at University of Padjadjaran, Indonesia. I learned to work independently to provide policy recommendations for regional biodiversity data sharing which had much precedent in Indonesia at the time, especially for women. I was also involved in various multi-stakeholder forum and data collection on Biodiversity Clearing House Mechanism (BCHM) with support and facilitation from Ministry of Environment (MoE) the Republic of Indonesia and Environmental Agency of West Java Province (BPLHD JABAR).
Pollinator Bats and Chiropterophilic Plants in Way Canguk, Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, Lampung
This is a BSc project was on the pollinating bats and bat-pollinated plant in Way Canguk, Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, Sumatra in 2007. I secured several studentships to support my undergraduate dissertation research (UNPAD Student Aid Scholarship (Bantuan Bagi Mahasiswa – BBM), IDEAWILD grant for research equipment, and CANOPI (Conservation Action and Network Program Indonesia) – WCS Indonesia Program research grant).
