Precision Biodiversity is a complementary next-generation technological approach to conserve, monitor and manage biological resources using advanced technology platforms for the protection of the planet as well as for socio-economic returns. For example, artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) are used for documentation, tracing, and analysis of biodiversity socioeconomic benefit.

Malaysia as the 12th most mega-biodiverse country on earth, has global responsibility for conservation and biodiversity management. By adopting Precision Biodiversity, the country will show the world how next-generation technologies can more effectively help to conserve, monitor and manage our valuable biological resources alongside a bio revolution and protect the planet.

Discussions on this topic are essential and urgently in need to reduce uncertainties related to managing natural resources while also helping to ensure optimum deployment for profitability, sustainability, and protection of the environment. Humans and machines working together can effectively and efficiently address the challenges confronting biodiversity issues today. The goal is to establish healthy societies supported by a healthy planet.
