Our Recent Activities

Ecosystem Services Discussion

The study from Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) in 2007 has found that the increasing of glasshouse gases quantity (CO2, CH4, NOx, and CFC) in the atmosphere largely due to human activities has been triggering the climate change on earth. Climate change is also posing great threat to society because it is shifting the balance in ecosystem and the dynamic of its components. Industrialization and fossil fuel combustion had led to the increasing of CO2 and other glasshouse gases quantity into atmosphere, causing global warming and climate instability.

Developing countries had been marked to suffer the biggest effect from the climate pattern change. The changing effects, including temperature rise, precipitation pattern change, sea-level rise, and other climate-related disasters are also increasing the risk in the agriculture, food, and water resource. Globalization on industrial system is also causing ecosystem fragmentation and degradation on big scale, destroying the ecosystem inhabited by various indigenous plant and animal species which could lead to the sixth great extinction.

The vital role of ecosystem and biodiversity—biosphere—on sustaining life, as we all know, has not been well-managed yet. The resilience on climate change depends on its healthy ecosystem and biodiversity richness. The higher biodiversity richness in the ecosystem and ecological knowledge in a community, the stronger its bio-cultural resilience. Resilience comes from the ability to mitigate (reducing the impact) or adaptation (response from change). The factors above are affecting the capacity of a system to endure disturbance and shock. In other words, it is the ability of a system to regulate its essential functions, structure, and identity. Resilience is an absolute quality characteristic from all healthy life system. There are many services which provided by forest that could contribute in reducing system vulnerability against climate change and, as a consequence, increasing its resilience.

SDSN Regional Workshop

The United Nation – Sustainable Development Solution Network (UN – SDSN), alongside United in Diversity (UID) Foundation, had established a regional workshop entitled Priorities and Pathways for Sustainable Energy and Deep Decarbonization in Indonesia. The workshop took place at Hotel Aryaduta, Jakarta, for two days on 26 – 27 November 2014. The workshop was organized as a by-invitation event and co-hosted by Ministry of Environment and Forestry, directly under Minister Siti Nurbaya. The workshop was also organized by collaboration of University of Indonesia (UI), UID, and Monash University in partnership with Carbon War Room, Australia – Indonesia Centre, and Harold Mitchell Foundation.

Seminar and Book Launching

Research Center for Climate Change – University of Indonesia (RCCC – UI) together with Faculty of Mathematic and Natural Science – University of Indonesia (FMIPA – UI) have been conducting a seminar on the topic of National Parks and Ecosystem Services on September 5, 2014. The seminar was held at Balai Sidang UI and the participants were coming from various institutions such as Akademi Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia (AIPI), Ministry of Forestry RI, Ministry of Research and Technology RI, Restorasi Ekosistem Indonesia, Ltd., Conservation International, Kehati, and students from another universities.

Researcher Profile

Multidisplin are Our Strength

Climate change is a natural phenomenon which becomes more complicated in terms of prediction due to various dimensions such as ethics, politics, economics, and humanity which affecting one another. This has been acknowledged and has been an important issue by many of UI’s scientists through their research topics. Through Research Center for Climate Change (RCCC–UI), some of scientists represent multi-disciplinarians and knowledge, and thus become the great opportunity to influence the nation’s policy developments as well as supporting adaptation schemes of local people.

Illustraition of Our Activities

Research Center for Climate Change University of Indonesia (RCCC-UI) have done some project since its established in 2010. Many activities include research program, simposia, training and workshops, general lecture of climate change related issues, and exhibition events. This shows the summary for some our project that describe by slide of photos and narratives, our engagement are not only on physical aspects of climate change, but also social and economical aspect. Supporting sustainable development goals and take it as an opportunity on development issues.
