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.

Wetlands International Annual Report 2013

The “red thread” for our work in 2013 was our increasing connection, dialogue and influence with other civil society organisations, business and industry. As you glance through the Achievements section in the report, you will see many concrete examples of this, with on-ground and policy results evident from the local to global scale. Through our major programmes we have demonstrated how wetlands play a vital role in securing biodiversity, strengthening livelihoods, increasing community resilience natural hazards like floods and droughts and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

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.
