Building with Nature Indonesia – reaching scale for coastal resilience
Coastal wetland conservation
Integrated delta management
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.
This leaflet describes the results from our pilot project and summarizes our approach and ambitions in Java with our new programme “Building with Nature Indonesia” which starts in 2015 in in partnership with the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Aff airs and Fisheries, the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works, Ecoshape Foundation, Deltares, Imares, Wageningen University, Witteveen+Bos, UNESCO-IHE and UNDIP.
