Natural resources and environmental conservation are among the important aspects in the development of the Nusantara Capital City (IKN) Forest City Plan. Conservation of forests, water, soil, and biodiversity of the area will ensure the sustainability of the city. Therefore, it is imperative that for effective implementation of conservation, engagement with all of stakeholders is in place. The right approach needs to be taken so that the conservation should be initiated properly, effectively, and efficiently. In addition, cultural aspects are equally crucial to engage with local community in conservation activities.
Nusantara National Capital Authority (OIKN) in collaboration with the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI) and the Center for International Forestry Research – World Agroforestry (CIFOR-ICRAF) will conduct a half-day discussion with the theme Culture and Conservation on the Concept of the IKN Forest City. In this discussion experts are invited to sit together and discuss how culture and conservation can support the design of the IKN Forest City.
