Thank you for your participation on Human Dimension International Workshop, Bogor - INDONESIA



Human influences on the transformations of ecosystems are the largest source of change on Earth, affecting the ability of the environment to sustain life and human well-being. Changes in land use and management affect the states, properties, and functions of ecosystems. In turn, these consequences affect human well-being. There is a need for improved understanding of how human activities affect natural processes of the terrestrial biosphere, and an even greater need to evaluate the impacts of these changes.


The objectives of the workshop on the Human Dimension of Tropical Peatland under Global Environmental Changes are to (i) understand the actors in environmental change, (ii) evaluate the consequences of the change on human well-being, and (iii) develop a new method for land management based on sustainable development.


Global environmental changes affect the coupled human-environment system, including biophysical alterations and social behavior, lifestyle and culture. These, in turn, influence local land use decisions and the provision of ecosystem services. The resulting changes to the environment can either increase or decrease the rate of environmental change. Links between decision-making, ecosystem services, and global environmental change define important pathways of feedback from intertwined human-environment activities from the local and regional scale to the global scale.

S - 1: Actors in Environmental Changes.
