Fisheries and marine conservation initiatives in Indonesia primarily focus on management of specific species, national and subnational level fisheries policy, and Marine Protected Areas. While such initiatives often use a mix of scientific and socio-economic approaches, economic tools and analysis tend to be underutilized.

Some of the enthusiastic participants in the workshop

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.

Specifically, CSF is working to evaluate the extent to which fishing regulations have been implemented at each MPA.
