August 5, 2022

TESSA Team with Perak Partners

This week Team TESSA (Toolkit for Ecosystem Services Site-based Assessment) travelled to Perak, Malaysia to deliver training to the TESSA Perak team based at UPSI (Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris). The training focused on measuring trees for above-ground carbon stocks, and was led by our senior field staff, Azlin and assisted by field staff, Ridly. This was an incredibly beneficial knowledge exchange for all of us. It gave our team a chance to provide guidance on establishing plots and conducting a vegetation census, while the TESSA Perak team shared insights on their research experience and local flora identification. We are definitely looking forward to future collaboration activities with the Perak TESSA team!
