ICM has been acknowledged as the most effective approach in managing coastal and marine area in integrative and holistic way since the last 2 decades.   Implementation of ICM practices in many areas in the region has given lesson learned either in success or fail stories. The success and the fail of implementation of an ICM practice in an area will depend on specific situation and condition of the area. Both ecological and social characters of an area are site specifics which are cannot be generalized and requires a “tailored-made design” in a specific area. In this conference, lesson learned on the implementation of various steps of ICM in many areas will be shared. Special approach/methodology/tools which has been applied to address specific problems will be discussed.   The potential applicability and replication of specific   approach/methodology/tools towards specific problems will be also discussed as well as enhance the scale of application. ICM scopes are covering themes of : marine protected areas, coastal resources and ecosystem rehabilitation, sustainable fisheries management and Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management, coastal disaster risk reduction and climate change impact and adaptation management, community livelihood enhancement, ecosystem services and valuation, and marine spatial planning.   Besides ICM-related themes, this conference will also discuss the latest development of marine biotechnology covering bioprospecting, marine natural products, and marine environmental biotechnology.    

This conference is organized by Center for Coastal and Marine Resources Studies (CCMRS/PKSPL) Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) which will be held on November 29-30, 2016. This conference aims to provide a forum for ICM and MBT expert and practitioners all over the region to meet and discuss their frontier ICM practices, as well as the latest scientific-based approaches/methodologies/tools and technological advancements in this important field. The Conference also aims to advance the participants' understanding of local, regional and global ICM problems and their solutions, and can be documented in an ICM ‘cook-book’.
