      Dear Colleagues,
      (English version below)

      Bapak/Ibu Ysh,
      Saya sampaikan bahwa saat ini telah berdiri Society for Coastal Ecosystems Studies - Asia Pacific, atau disingkat SCESAP yang bertujuan untuk meningkatkan kerjasama penelitian dan pendidikan dalam bidang keilmuan dan pengelolaan eksoistem pesisir, laut dan sekitarnya, utamanya di kawasan Asia Pasific, melalui promosi, kerjasama dan komunikasi yang efektif diantara individu dan organisasi atau lembaga terkait. SCESAP ini dideklarasikan pada Bulan Desember 2013 kemaren yang dihadiri oleh 9 negara di kawasan Asia Pasific. Website secara resmi baru saja dilaunching tanggal 1 April 2013 kemaren. Untuk keterangan lebih lanjut, silakan buka websitenya, www.scesap.org. HQ nya di Japan dengan kantor regional di beberapa negara termasuk Indonesia.
      SCESAP ini dilatarbelakangi oleh semangat dari beberapa Negara akan pentingnya mempromosikan hasil-hasil penelitian baik oleh peneliti maupun mahasiswa di kawasan Asia Pasific terkait ekosistem pesisir, laut, pulau-pulau kecil dan pengelolaannya, yang saat ini dirasa masih relative sedikit. Padahal kawasan perairan Asia Pasific ini dikenal dengan megadiversity area dibandingkan kawasan lainnya. Keanggotaan SCESAP terbuka bagi siapa saja yang tertarik dalam mempromosikan hasil-hasil penelitian terkait ekosistem pesisir, laut, dan pulau-pulau kecil. Diharapkan dengan adanya SCESAP ini hasil-hasil penelitian dari dari kalangan peneliti dan mahasiswa di kawasan Asia Pasific lebih meningkat dengan kualitas yang lebih baik.. Silakan buka websitenya: www.scesap.org dan daftarkan Bapak/Ibu sebagai member dengan cara mengisi formulir yang terlampir.

      Beberapa rencana kegiatan yang akan dilaksanakan, diantaranya jurnal ilmiah untuk science and management, SCESAP meeting 2015 di Cebu (Philippine) SCESAP meeting 2016 di Vietnam. Saat ini SCESAP juga membuka kesempatan untuk mahasiswa mengikuti a summer field course to students of any nationality (undergraduate and Masters-level students). SCESAP members (students) will be given priority in case the number of applicants exceeds the capacity under this scheme, tentative schedule 18-28 Agustus 2013.

      Mohon kesediaan Bapak/Ibu Yth untuk share informasi ini sehingga society baru ini bisa berkembang dengan baik dan dapat berkontribusi terhadap kemajuan penelitian dan pendidikan di kawasan asia Pasific.

      Terima kasih dan salam,
      Handoko
      The Society for Coastal Ecosystems Studies - Asia Pacific, or SCESAP, has been established to advance research and education in the science and management of coastal ecosystems and adjacent environments in the Asia-Pacific region and worldwide, through the promotion of effective cooperation and communication among interested individuals and organisations in Asia-Pacific and elsewhere. please visit our new website: www.scesap.org.

      The First, truly "Asia-Pacific", Academic Society with an incorporated HQ
      The SCESAP is probably the first, Asia-based, international academic society with an incorporated structure, that has been built upon the spirit of 'equal-partnership' participation of members, in particular those from countries/regions surrounding the mega-biodiversity areas of tropical/ subtropical Asia Pacific. The Society's equal-partnership stance is explicitly embodied in its Articles of Association
      which stipulate that representatives from no one country should numerically dominate the Society's highest decision-making body, the Permanent Council.
      The SCESAP identifies as its important task the promotion of science by researchers and students based in Asia Pacific regions which have assumed, to date, a relatively minor part in the advancement of coastal ecosystems studies for economic, social and other reasons. The Society is therefore aware of the discrepancy in research infrastructure and output between countries in mega-diversity areas of Asia Pacific and those in non-mega-diversity areas and recognises the need for the former to collaborate more closely among themselves to promote their science - after all, the management and conservation of coastal biodiversity largely rest on their shoulders. The Society membership is open to anyone interested in the promotion of coastal ecosystems research in Asia Pacific and elsewhere. The Society's financing is dependent on its members sharing financial burdens on an equal-partnership basis. The SCESAP has its headquarters in Amakusa, Japan, as an incorporated, non-profit organization.

      Working together on the biodiversity of coastal ecosystems in Asia Pacific
      Biodiversity research and management require a concerted effort from all parties concerned, and this is all the more so in Asia Pacific where rapidly increasing populations and expanding socio-economic activities make many coastal environments highly vulnerable to irrevocable changes. The Society recognises the need for scientists and students working on different types of coastal habitats and different taxa to engage in closer collaboration and information exchange through dissemination of their research results on shared platforms, as that is vital for deeper and effective understanding of our varied coastal ecosystems. In this spirit the Society welcomes all people working on animals, plants and microorganisms in Asia Pacific regions and will facilitate their networking.

      Please support us by spreading this information to other colleagues and being a member of the society. Visit www.scesap.org, download and fill in membership form, submit to membership division.

      Thanks much and best regards,
