We are delighted to announce that a member of our research team, Dr. Radisti A. Praptiwi, has just been awarded a grant from the GCRF Blue Communities Early Career Researcher Network (ECRN) Pilot Project. The pilot project is a collaborative effort between early career researchers in CSERM UNAS and Universiti Malaya, with Dr. Voon-Ching Lim will act as the Co-Principal Investigator, and involving other researchers from both institutions: Carya Maharja and Prawesti Wulandari (CSERM UNAS), and Wan Nur Syazana (Universiti Malaya).

Aided through a series of workshops involving mentors from the GCRF Blue Communities experts, the team developed and pitched the ideas during the ECRN Meeting at the annual meeting of GCRF Blue Communities in Plymouth, UK (5 – 16 August 2019). Through the funded project, the team will seek to explore and find ways to integrate Local Knowledge and Perception in the Assessment of Coastal Ecosystem Services.
