UMS Plays Key Role in Biodiversity Conservation

rasmi TCTPFRIDAY, 08 AUGUST – International relationship is vital in ensuring that biodiversity can be implemented successfully.

According to the Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Prof. Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah, the issue cannot be resolved if only one country is involved.

“The issue of biodiversity conservation is a global issue that requires each country to join forces together to make it happen. Thus, the Third Country Training Programme (TCTP) is timely as a platform to unite the global community to share information and views in addressing this issue,” he said when officiating the TCTP at UMS Chancellery Square.

Touching on the programme, Datuk Dr. Harun said this programme could foster closer ties between countries in the context of biodiversity conservation with related organisations around the world.

“In this case, UMS as the main organiser through the Institute of Tropical Biology and Conservation (ITBC) plays a key role in showing participants, to see for themselves, efforts undertaken by Sabah and Malaysia in general, in addition to sharing their expertise with the researchers involved in the conservation of biodiversity,” he added.

The three-week programme was attended by 19 participants from Brunei, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Mali, Tanzania, Uganda and Botswana. – SS (fl)
