Keterlibatan Masyarakat Dalam Pengelolaan Kawasan Pesisir dan Laut

Kegiatan hybrid engineering ini dilaksanakan di Desa Timbulsloko, Kecamatan Sayung, abupaten
Demak, Provinsi Jawa Tengah. Pemilihan lokasi ini mengacu pada lokasi program Pengembangan
Desa Pesisir Tangguh (PDPT) yang dilaksanakan oleh Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan (KKP). Bekerjasama dengan KKP, struktur hybrid engineering telah dibangun di dukuh Bogorame dan dukuh Wonorejo, Desa Timbulsloko pada bulan Oktober‐November tahun 2013.

Pelatihan “Pemetaan Ekosistem dan Rehabilitasi Pantai Berbasis Masyarakat di Kabupaten Sikka dan Lembata “ Propinsi Nusa Tenggara Timur

Dalam pelatihan ini, peserta difokuskan untuk memperoleh pemahaman dan pengetahuan tentang
aspek-aspek dalam pengelolaan ekosistem pesisir dalam konteks Pengurangan Resiko Bencana
(PRB) dan perubahan iklim (adaptasi dan mitigasi) berbasis masyarakat. Pengetahuan dasar mengenai ekosistem, restorasi, perubahan iklim dan kebencanaan disampaikan pada awal pelatihan guna menyeragamkan pemahaman peserta terlebih dahulu. Secara khusus, pelatihan ini
memberikan pengetahuan dan pengalaman kepada peserta tentang tata cara mengelola atau melaksanakan rehabilitasi pesisir.

Community Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment in the Context of Disaster Risk Reduction

This assessment of vulnerability level and capacity at the sites mentored by WIIP was designed to ascertain the characteristics and frequency of hazards faced by the local community, as well as the capacity possessed by the community, and the sites vulnerable to disaster impact. The authors are aware that this report is far from perfect. Field constraints were a limiting factor in the acquisition of data and information.Nevertheless, the authors hope that all the information contained in this report will be of use to the community, local village and district/municipal governments, as well as to other parties who have an interest in reducing the disaster risk at those sites, and that in future it will be a consideration in sustainable ecosystem management, and in deciding on mitigation steps for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).

Kajian Baseline Ekosistem Mangrove di Desa – desa di Kabupaten Pohuwato dan Bolaang Mongondow Selatan

Penilaian kondisi awal (Baseline Asessment) suatu wilayah dalam konteks ekosistem merupakan hal yang sangat penting dalam rangka menyelaraskan kondisi serta potensi suatu lokasi proyek dengan desain dan rencana proyek. Kajian dilaksanakan di desa-desa dan kecamatan yang terpilih menerima Program Fasilitas Dana Hibah Skala Kecil (Small Grant Facility/SGF) di Provinsi Gorontalo dan Sulawesi Utara.

WKLB Vol. 22 No 2, Juli 2014

Indahnya alam Indonesia, menyejukkan jiwa. Namun sayangnya , keindahan itu selalu diiringi kerusakan yang membuat merana. Ibarat dua sisi mata uang, indah dan punah bak sepasang
kata yang tidak dapat terpisahkan. Potret tersebut juga tersajikan pada tulisantulisan edisi kali ini.
Mudah-mudahan informasi dan data yang tersaji ini, bisa menjadi pengetahuan dan motivasi untuk kita terus berfikir dan berkarya bagi pulihnya alam lingkungan dari segala kerusakan.

A sustainable solution for massive coastal erosion in Central Java

We developed a new approach called ‘Hybrid Engineering’, which addresses delta and coastal vulnerability in an integrated manner. This approach accommodates economic and livelihood development needs, and combines technical and ecosystem-based solutions. The Hybrid Engineeringapproach is aimed to work with nature rather than against it.

Building with Nature Documentary

Indonesian coasts suffer from erosion, caused by sea level rise, mangrove conversion for aquaculture and groundwater extraction. In some places kilometres of land are lost and this will exacerbate with climate change. Hard structures like sea walls are ineffective in mud-coasts, expensive and unable to adapt to climate change. Furthermore, they fail to provide the economic, environmental and social services that healthy ecosystems offer. We combine ecosystem based solutions like mangrove restoration with engineering, called ´Building with Nature´. With this multi-stakeholder approach we build safe coastlines that adapt to sea level rise and simultaneously introduce sustainable land uses for prosperity. We aim to mainstream the Building with Nature approach in coastal management across Indonesia for climate change adaptation and to catalyse change through a large scale implementation in Central Java.

Building with Nature Indonesia


Through “Building with Nature” we envision a safe delta coastline in Northern Java which enables vulnerable communities and economic sectors to prosper, be more self-reliant and resilient against hazards. This leaflet summarizes our approach and ambitions in Java. Our dream is to replicate this model in rural and urban coastlines in Indonesia and beyond.

Subsidence of peat soils - flooding risk in South-east Asia

This factsheet explains the causes and consequences of the rapid and severe subsidence of peat soils in South-east Asia as a result of the drainage of peatlands for agriculture and forestry. We provide recommendations on what can be done to mitigate further subsidence and resulting flooding in the tropics and instead create sustainable peat landscapes.

Laporan Kegiatan Keterlibatan Masyarakat Dalam Pengelolaan Kawasan Pesisir dan Laut

Salah satu permasalahan utama yang dihadapi oleh kawasan pesisir di Indonesia adalah tingginya
tingkat erosi pantai atau abrasi. Proses erosi pantai terjadi karena adanya ketidakseimbangan pergerakan sedimen dari dan ke pantai, dimana jumlah sedimen di pantai yang tergerus oleh gelombang dan arus lebih tinggi daripada jumlah sedimen yang dibawa oleh pasang surut ke pantai.  Fenomena ini dipicu oleh kegiatan‐kegiatan yang menyebabkan perubahan keseimbangan alam seperti pembukaan hutan mangrove.
