Southeast Asia Botanic Gardens (SEABG) Network
The SEABG Network was established in 2004 to acknowledge, support and promote the work of botanic gardens in the region. It also serves as a joint platform to contribute towards implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), in particular its Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC), as well as the International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation. For more information on SEABG Network activities contact the SEABG Network Coordinator.
The objectives of the SEABG Network are to:
- Set standards (e.g. working practices, sustainable management approaches, etc.) among botanic gardens in the region;
- Provide a venue for exchange of technical expertise and assistance;
- Link SEABG members with other botanic gardens networks and associations;
- Guide SEABG members towards implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), specifically the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) as well as the International Agenda for Botanic Gardens.
The SEABG Network includes members from:
Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, China; Thailand, Timor Leste and Vietnam.
The SEABG Network holds a conference every two years to gather country representatives and provide capacity building on priority themes determined by the network.
