In coordination with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) of Indonesia and the Indonesian Marine and Fisheries Socio-Economic Research Network (IMFISERN), CSF held two events to support the use of scientific research in developing Indonesia’s marine and fisheries sector.

Cost-Benefit Analysis for the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area, Peru

In partnership with Oceana, CSF is conducting a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for the creation of the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area (NRMPA) located off the coast of central Peru. The CBA will estimate the benefits from the creation of the proposed MPA and compare these with costs associated with managing and others resulting from the establishment of the MPA. Roughly 100 kilometers offshore, NRMPA has the potential to be an important icon for marine conservation in Peru and globally while also protecting a source of marine wildlife and resources from future overfishing and pollution threats.

New publication launch: strategies for conserving mangroves in Brazil's protected areas

CSF-Brazil is pleased to announce the launch of a new publication (in Portuguese): "The values of ecosystem services of the Brazilian mangroves, economic instruments for its conservation and the Salgado Paraense case study".

Roughly 90% of mangroves in Brazil are located in protected areas (PA). However, there are important deficiencies in financial sustainability and resource management that affect natural capital stocks, biodiversity and thus, local communities.

In Indonesia, human and development activities have a significant impact on marine ecosystems and the health of fisheries - one of the most important industries in the country. Economic solutions to these issues are often overlooked, though can be among the most effective. To address this, CSF-Indonesia is seeking to empower policy makers in the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) with specific economic tools and knowledge to support them in formulating policies to conserve and sustainably manage marine resources.

Policy Makers Workshop: Economic Tools for Marine Conservation and Sustainable Fisheries

 

On March 25th - 29th 2018, we held a five-day workshop on the use of economic tools and knowledge to support Indonesian Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) in formulating policies to conserve and sustainably manage marine resources. Twenty-seven participants from different technical roles across various departments at MMAF were present.
