Indonesia's biodiversity is an important asset for national development. Diversity at the level of genetics, species, and ecosystems provides great benefits in various aspects of life, especially food, health and energy, as well as industrial basic materials, which aim to meet human needs. Based on the results of a study by Bappenas (2012), the contribution of the Indonesian economy to biodiversity and ecosystems reaches no less than IDR 2,053.8 trillion.

As one of the countries with the richest biodiversity in the world, Indonesia plays a major role in supporting efforts to manage biodiversity at the global level by strengthening its commitment to sustainable biodiversity management as the basic capital for national development. In strengthening this commitment at the national level, Indonesia has designed the Indonesia Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (IBSAP) which is an important guide in planning for biodiversity management policies as well as the integration and mainstreaming of these policies in national development plans.

The Government of Indonesia has periodically compiled the IBSAP document since 2003 as a follow-up to the 1993 Indonesia Biodiversity Action Plan (BAPI).

As the 2015-2020 IBSAP implementation period ends, the Government of Indonesia in 2022 is carrying out the formulation of the Post-2020 Biodiversity Management Strategy and Planning Towards Indonesia's 2045 Vision which is formulated in the framework of the Post-2020 IBSAP Document. The formulation of these strategies and action plans will in the process be harmonized with international agreements and other global issues, including the UN-CBD Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, SDGs, climate change issues, the Covid-19 pandemic, and are mainstreamed into the Long-Term Development Plan document (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Panjang/RPJP) and the Medium-Term Development Plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah/RPJM).

One of the big challenges faced by Indonesia as a mega-biodiversity country is in terms of providing funding needs for ideal biodiversity management amid limited conventional funding sources such as the national state budget (Anggaran dan Pendapatan Belanja Negara/APBN). The existence of support for sustainable biodiversity funding resources is very much needed to overcome the problem of the lack of funding capacity for biodiversity management within the framework of achieving national development targets. Meanwhile, in the long term, the implementation of sustainable funding is urgently needed to increase the effectiveness of biodiversity management and to create alternative funding solutions to reduce dependence on government funding sources. Therefore, optimizing the involvement of the support of funding resources from various stakeholders to actively contribute to ensuring the sustainability of funding for biodiversity management, both inside and outside the conservation area becomes very important.

To provide input for the Government of Indonesia regarding sustainable biodiversity funding policies within the post-2020 framework of conservation of biodiversity, a Funding Resource Mobilization Strategy will be carried out as a supplement to the Post-2020 IBSAP Main Document. In particular, this activity will include the synthesis and formulation of strategies for mobilizing funding from various sources, both government and non-government through a series of coordination carried out in a participatory consultation in-line with the process of compiling the main IBSAP Post-2020 document.
