As a member of the International Association of Botanic Gardens (IABG), Indonesian Botanic Gardens (IBG) has responsibilites to conduct plant conservation efforts and research in Indonesia. In fact, four botanic gardens managed by the Indonesian Institute of Sciences were only able to conserve approximately 21.5% of the Indonesian threatened plants. Therefore, it has been important to develop local/regional botanic gardens (L/RBG) throughout Indonesia in order to conserve the plant diversity. This paper aims to review and highlight the L/RBG achievements in plants conservation and to establish management strategy of plants collection in each region, especially in achieving the Target 8 of the GSPC. At the end of 2012, IBG and L/ RBG has collected and managed 24% of the Indonesian threatened plants and succesfully cultivated 25% of the Indonesian threatened plants (including in the nursery collections). Some strategies developed for the L/RBG plants collection development include: strengthening collection management and data base; developing and enriching plants collection in each L/RBG with reference to the IUCN Red List and local flagship species; and setting the priority species for conservation policy and actions.
