The Nexus between Conservation and Development in Indonesian Mangroves

The Nexus between Conservation and Development in Indonesian Mangroves

With around 3 million hectares, Indonesia houses almost a quarter of the world’s mangroves, larger than any continent. To date, they face tremendous pressures from aquaculture and agriculture development with current loss of 1.2% annually. Mainstreaming mangrove sustainable management through a national regulatory framework and linking it with global framework such as Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goal is very timely.
