As part of the continuing collaboration between the Government of Brunei Darussalam and the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB), the Third Training Programme on Clearing-House Mechanism (CHM) Maintenance and Data Management was held on 28 October to 2 November 2013 in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam.

The course, which is part of ACB's capacity building support to Brunei Darussalam in the area of biodiversity information management, focuses on web administration and management and data organization. The event serves as follow-up to two previously-held biodiversity information management training courses, which resulted in the establishment of the Brunei Darussalam national CHM website: http://www.bruneichm.gov.bn.

This third training course aims to strengthen capacities of CHM staff and CHM stakeholders network of Brunei Darussalam to maintain and enhance their CHM website, as well as comply with reporting requirements of the Convention on Biological Diversity.

Staff of ACB's Biodiversity and Information Management unit, led by its director, Dr. Sheila Vergara, will serve as resource persons.

The first three days of the training course focuses on data organization and CHM enhancement and maintenance while a National CHM Steering Committee meeting will be held on the fourth day. On the fifth day, a more in-depth training on website maintenance will be conducted for the CHM core staff.
