MOTIVATION & PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES
Nowadays, the anthropogenic ecological crisisbecome an important issue that should be immediately addressed, due to its damage for the future mankind. The rapid growth of human needs and activities have exceeded the carrying capacity of nature. The issues of global warming, land reclamation, loss of habitats/biodiversity, land conversion, degradation on cultural diversities, the increasing of non-degradable waste, marine debris etc., are several examples of socio-ecologicalcrisis emerges from inequalities human nature interactions.
The understanding of coupled human-nature system can be consideredas an important key to solve thecorrespondingsocio-ecological crisis. One of the solution to overcome those crisis is by considering the local knowledge which was developed based on long time interaction between local community member and their environment.The local knowledge should be considered as the part of main solutions in managing natural resources sustainably.
Integrated studies of coupled human-nature systems reveal new and complex patterns. This systems will not be fully understand if done separately. Recently, there are several studies have been done related with coupled human-nature systems (Carter et al. 2014; Liu et al. 2007a; Liu et al. 2007b). The complexity problem of studying coupled human-nature system need transdisciplinary approach.In studying coupled human-nature systems requires a minimum of ecological, social and economic experts. These experts need space for dialogue and exchange ideas. This conference satellite can be a facility for experts to exchange experiences, ideas and discussions.
The purpose of conference satellite is provide a place for experts to shareexperiences, ideas and dialogue. It is expected that the gathering of experts at this conference will produce basic concepts and approaches or methods in developing coupled human-nature systems research.
The scope of the satellite coupled human-nature system conference are follows:
- Sustainable Landscape Management
- Biological and physical ecology
- Socio-ecological economic
- Biocultural Diversity
- Conservation beyond borders
- Christopher PA Bennett (Natural Resource Governance, forestry & agroforestry – University of British Columbia, Canada)
- Hadi Susilo Arifin (Landscape Management and Ecology of IPB University)
