The Indonesia Regional Science Association (IRSA) in collaboration with Lambung Mangkurat University (UNILAM) will conduct the Expert Workshop on Development, Environment and the People of Kalimantan. The workshop will discuss Kalimantan in many aspects of development. Albeit it is nationally among the most important regions, Kalimantan is facing complex issues. Kalimantan is, at the same time, a rich but poor island. This expert workshop aims to provide comprehensive information based on the present economic, social, and political development in Kalimantan with respect to the on-going global changes. It seeks to provide a framework for balancing environmental and social concerns with the need to promote economic development and alleviate poverty.
