SEAMEO Regional Centre for Tropical Biology (BIOTROP) calls research project proposals for implementation in 2018 and 2019 on the theme of “Managing biodiversity of ecosystems for greater sustainability and resilience in Southeast Asia”. Research proposals should cover any or a combination of the Centre’s three new program under its 10th FYPD on restoration of degraded ecosystem, sustainable management of intensively used ecosystems/landscapes, and conservation and sustainable use of unique ecosystems/landscapes of high biodiversity. SEAMEO BIOTROP believes that this new program thrusts would be significant for the sustainable development in the Southeast Asian region. These program thrusts are also envisioned to integrate the global and regional concerns for climate change, poverty alleviation, food and nutrition security, and gender which are core themes of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDG 2030) and the ASEAN Vision 2020. The research proposal should be submitted not later than 30 August 2017.
