Coastal area management for sustainable use of marine resources

27 August 2022

*) This event is free of charge for graduate students (Ind.: Mahasiswa Pascasarjana)

As a country with the second-longest coastline in the world, Indonesia has huge marine resources potential that can be utilized for human welfare. Fisheries and tourism sectors have a profound proportion in coastal areas in Indonesia. In fact, fishery products are one of the export commodities that have a significant role in increasing the country’s foreign exchange. In terms of tourism, beaches in Indonesia offer natural beauty that attracts many tourists, both locals and international visitors. In addition, these marine resources attract not only tourists but also researchers. Various explorations and studies have been done to reveal the ocean’s hidden potential. It is widely known that the ocean has a role as a carbon sink which is a major factor in global warming. Researchers also believe that there is enormous potential in biopharmacology and biotechnology held in the ocean, which serves more advantages because it comes from nature.

However, many human activities in coastal areas seriously threaten coastal ecosystems, including land conversion, pollution, and excessive exploitation of natural resources. These activities cause a decline in the function of marine ecosystems, both economically and ecologically, lead a detrimental impact on humans and marine life. Therefore, the sustainable use of marine resources is highly recommended to create a balance between natural and human needs. Furthermore, the involvement of various parties such as the government and the community is also expected to achieve the goal of harmony with nature.
