Fisheries Economics, Policy and Conservation Training of Trainers - Indonesia 2018

Of the 20 experts we trained on CSF's unique teaching technique, 78% stated that the training was valuable, and 100% would recommend this training to a colleague. 

"As a government person, I never knew how to teach like CSF demonstrated to me. All I knew before was to jam all of the information into a Powerpoint presentation and have 50+ slides to explian to people in a 2 hour period, which was never effective. This training was a real turning point in my life. Now I know how to engage audiences using the skills I received. I cannot wait to implement this new way of teaching at my next opportunity." 

Developing a Green Regency in the Heart of Borneo: Sustainable Landscape Planning in Sintang Regency, West Kalimantan

With the rise of jurisdictional approaches to sustainable commodity sourcing and pressure to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, a number of regencies and provinces in Indonesia have taken steps to embrace sustainable and low-carbon development plans. CSF is supporting the government and stakeholders in Sintang Regency to collectively design and implement a Green Regency plan that includes sustainable land use practices and better governance. We are contributing expertise in economics, sustainable development, and strategic planning, and working closely with the local government, who are overseeing the process with the support from local government and civil society organizations (CSOs) .

CSF-Indonesia supports government efforts to achieve a Green Sintang

CSF-Indonesia has officially begun working to develop a shared vision and roadmap for Green Sintang Regency (Kabupaten Sintang Lestari) in West Kalimantan Province, Indonesia. Green Sintang refers to the transition to sustainable, low carbon development principles, and preservation of natural resources and ecosystems. With the programs brought by CSF Indonesia and other Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) under the Circle of Green Regency group partners (Lingkar Temu Kabupaten Lestari, LTKL), the government of Sintang will have the opportunity to achieve Green Regency despite the establishment of new large scale plantations within the area. The Sintang government recognizes the need to engage stakeholders in land use planning to ensure sustainability and more equitable distribution of benefits from development. CSF held a kick-off meeting on April 9th and 10th and involved CSOs and Local Government Agencies (Organisasi Perangkat Daerah - OPD).

Training for Fisheries Policy Makers in Indonesia

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.

In early 2017, six researchers were awarded a grant as part of CSF’s Indonesia Marine Fellows Program (MFP). The six fellows were selected based on their research topics, which seek to answer pertinent questions about fisheries management challenges in Indonesia. The fellows were also paired with mentors who are experts in their respective fields.
