Supporting Sustainable Fisheries and Coastal Livelihoods

70% of Indonesians live in coastal areas and rely on the ocean for incomes and nutrition. The fisheries sector employs 7 million people and over 50% of dietary protein comes from seafood.


Building Healthy Coastal and Marine Ecosystems

Indonesia’s ocean resources are worth over $256 bn annually, more than a 1/4 of the national economy. To ensure a healthy and equitable future, the oceans are in need of sustainable management and further research.


Reducing Marine Pollution

Indonesia is the 2nd largest contributor of plastic waste. Tons of plastic leak into the ocean every year, making marine debris a critical threat to Indonesia’s valuable ocean resources.
