This is where I discuss projects related to my interest and study and work.

Spatial prioritisation for High Conservation Values and High Carbon Stocks in a Human-Modified Tropical Landscape in Borneo

DSCF5958This 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 will use 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.

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 am doing is being mentored by Dr. Sonali Senaratna Sellamuttu from IWMI – Laos (CLA Chapter 1, Report Co-Chair Asia Pacific Assessment).
