Introduction

Training has been a major mandate of SEAMEO BIOTROP since its establishment in 1968. This mandate is aimed at helping produce a cadre of improved human resources in Southeast Asia on various aspects of tropical biology that are capable of bringing innovation and growth in their areas of work toward contributing to the total sustainable development of their respective countries. This mandate is being carried out by the Centre through funding support from the Government of Indonesia, SEAMEO Special Education Development Fund, and other national and international funding partners.

Through the years, the Centre has continuously addressed the knowledge and skills development needs of clost to 10,000 professionals and students from government and private institutions on a wide range of topics on tropical biology.

For 2019, the Centre has lined up 22 national training courses, 8 regional training courses, and 2 community development activities.

All of the courses are coordinated and facilitated by the Centre's in-house scientists supported by relevant logistical units, including the BIOTROP Information and Training Centre.
