Yayasan BIOMA (BIOMA Foundation, simply called as BIOMA) is a non-governmental organization based in Samarinda, East Kalimantan (Borneo Island) established in 1998 (bioma.or.id). BIOMA has a vision of "Sustainability of the functions and benefits of natural resources and environment for the sustainability of all creatures including human well being, especially local communities". To achieve this vision, BIOMA has a mission of "to promote the community’s awareness and participation and to support policies and efforts in the protection and sustainable use of natural resources and the environment as a gift of God Almighty".
BIOMA already has a website and have gotten benefits from it for organizational promotion, program advocacy, and other communication activities. Website is now generally become the most effective and powerful tool for communication. The existing website is managed and updated regularly, but all contents are still in Bahasa Indonesia. The web presentation remains the same from time to time, and they feel their web is not attractive and need to be improved.
BIOMA has 2 staffs assigned specifically to maintain and to update the content of the web regularly, but it is done in simple way because of the limitation on technical skills. In the process of updating, there is no prior verification or check from the Management so that sometimes there are mistakes, incomplete contents, etc.
Websites and the internet are the most effective and powerful communication tools for reaching broader audiences. BIOMA realizes if they have to reach the target of the international community, because the issues that are working cannot be separated from international environmental issues.
Today, the organization needs to improve the lay out and content of the website and use the internet tool to manage the website properly.
