Action of

Building with Nature in 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. Our dream is to replicate this model in rural and urban coastlines in Indonesia and beyond.

Animation: restoring eroded coast Java by Building with Nature

This animation shows the "Building with Nature" technique that Wetlands International, Deltares and the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries piloted from 2012-2014 to restored the strongly eroded coast in Central Java. The technique successfully works with nature instead of fighting against it and will be scaled up to other parts of the coast in the next years.

Keep it fresh or salty

This report provides guidance for program and project developers from, or working in, developing
countries on the numerous funds and finance mechanisms that can provide carbon finance for wetland carbon conservation and restoration. It also highlights ways to access and link carbon activities with non-carbon based sources of financing.

The Role of Mangroves in Fisheries Enhancement

Some 210 million people live in low elevation areas within 10 km of mangroves and many of these directly benefit from mangrove-associated fisheries. Yet, these people are often unaware of the key role mangroves may play, especially if the associated fisheries are offshore.

A new study by Wetlands International, The Nature Conservancy and the University of Cambridge, concludes that mangrove conservation and restoration in areas close to human populations will render the greatest return on investment with respect to enhancing fisheries.

Kajian Lingkungan dan Sosial Ekonomi dalam Perencanaan Program Rehabilitasi dan Pemberdayaan Masyarakat di Gampong Layeun

Pada Juli 2014, Wetlands International diundang Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) untuk bersama-sama memikirkan dan berkontribusi dalam pemulihan mata pencaharian masyarakat desa Layeun. Pada pertemuan yang dihadiri Presiden Clinton, CGI berkomitmen memberikan bantuan berupa 12 unit kapal tangkap. Di saat yang sama, Wetlands International juga berkomitmen untuk memfasilitasi masyarakat melakukan kegiatan pemberdayaan ekonomi yang diintegrasikan dengan restorasi pesisir. Kedua program ini diharapkan mampu bersinergi agar dapat memberikan dampak yang lebih signifikan bagi pemulihan perekonomiam masyarakat dan lingkungan pesisir.

Mangroves for coastal defence

Can mangroves reduce waves and storm surges? How will they influence the forces of a tsunami? Do they actually contribute to stabilizing coasts and build-up of soils? Can they keep up with sea level rise? The “Mangroves for coastal defence: Guidelines for coastal managers & policy makers" provides an in-depth analysis  on the role that mangroves play in defense against waves, storms, tsunamis, erosion and sea level rise. Working with the University of Cambridge to review hundreds of scientific papers, the guide book outlines a practical approach for coastal decision makers.

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).
