There're some of BIOTROP's result studies that have been carried out and are carrying out related to the development of BIONIC online are studies on organic pesticides, biological fertilizers, pest management, study on weeds and Alien Invasive Plants, and Natural products such as essential oils. We know that the dream to have BIONIC online isn't easy to achieve, still we need the support and role from other stakeholders in Southeast Asia to complement the existing expertise at SEAMEO BIOTROP.
Director of SEAMEO BIOTROP, Dr. Zulhamsyah Imran stated that the holding of this event adds to the level of usefulness of BIOTROP together in advancing education in Biodiversity Clinic aspects. The high competitiveness of the nation will encourage independence and will ultimately lead to the welfare of the nation. This activity is very useful because the topics are very up to date and provided directly from the resource persons and experts to respond to on global challenges related in supporting ecological sustainability through the biodiversity clinic platform online in Southeast Asia.
There will be several objectives to be achieved in this webinar are:
- Introducing and disseminating study results from our stakeholders related to Biodiversity Clinic (BIONIC)
