The West Papua Conservation and Natural Resources Center (BBKSDA) is currently engaging in the preparation of the Encyclopedia of Protected Areas: Biodiversity and Ecosystems in West Papua. In an effort to ensure the quality of this book, FORCLIME offered its support to BBKSDA in the areas of editing, book design, layout and printing from 29 October to 6 November 2022.
The new encyclopedia will reflect the richness of the natural biodiversity in the BBKSDA working area. In addition, the book will also address the socio-economic and cultural conditions of traditional communities living around the BBKSDA area. The purpose that underlies the compiling of this encyclopedia is an effort to increase public awareness of the importance of protecting West Papua’s natural and socio-cultural wealth.
The West Papua Natural Resources Conservation Center is a technical implementing unit of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in West Papua Province and its working area encompasses 28 conservation areas within both land and maritime environments.
