How We’re Organized

We are ASEAN’s response to the
challenge of biodiversity loss.

Who manages ACB
The Centre is managed by a Governing Board, which is composed of the ASEAN Senior Officials on the Environment (ASOEN) and the ASEAN Secretary General. Headed by the Chairman of the ASOEN, the Governing Board has overall responsibility and accountability for the operations of ACB.

The ASEAN Working Group on Nature Conservation and Biodiversity (AWGNCB) provides technical guidance to ACB by recommending the key areas of focus for its work. The AWGNCB Members also act as ACB National Contact Points in their respective countries

Our People
ACB is headed by an Executive Director who is assisted by highly skilled professionals with international and national experiences in the areas of environment and biodiversity conservation, policy and programme development and coordination, finance and administration, information and knowledge management, and communication.

Our Components
ACB implements its programmes and projects through five components: Programme Development and Implementation, Capacity Building, Biodiversity Information Management, Communication and Public Affairs, and Organizational Management and Resource Mobilization. The Office of the Executive Director provides policy and operational guidance and supervision to these components while the Finance and Administration Unit provides them with financial, administrative and human resources development support.
