Indonesian Forest Monitoring Network

Indonesia has the third largest area of tropical forest globally, yet  long-term forest monitoring  networks across the archipelago are missing. Our new consortium aims to mobilise and integrate permanent sample plot datasets from Sumatra to Papua to understand where, how and why Indonesia's forests are changing.

Biocultural diversity of the Sierra Nevada del Cocuy: towards a UNESCO World Heritage Site

This project aims to monitor changes in plant communities caused by climate change in the Sierra Nevada del Cocuy National Park, document the perceptions of the indigenous U'wa people about the ecosystem services delivered by the Cocuy NP, and mainstream the importance of Cocuy NP across all sectors of society to contribute to its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This project arises from a longstanding passion and research by Professor Antoine Cleef, who since the 1970s has been  mainstreaming the importance of the Cocuy as a global centre of plant diversity.
