About ACB

What is ACB?

ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity or ACB is an intergovernmental organization of ASEAN that will encourage and enable ASEAN Member Countries to meet the millenium development goal: To achieve reduction in the rate of biodiversity loss by 2010.
ACB has been created with the signing of ASEAN Agreement for the Establishment of the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity by the 10 ASEAN Member Countries. It was officially launched last 27 September 2005 during the 9th Informal ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on the Environment (9th IAMME) held in the Philippines. The European Union will provide initial funding for 3.5 years while ASEAN will provide the counterpart funding.
The Purpose of the project is to achieve strengthened regional capacity on biodiversity in ASEAN. This will be done by promoting the exchange of relevant knowledge, thus helping national, intra-ASEAN and international needs and commitments to be fulfilled in terms of retrospective monitoring and early warning systems, while facilitating greater investment in the biodiversity sector within ASEAN.
