The historical event of 2018 World Bank-IMF Annual Meeting that took place in Nusa Dua, Bali set a limelight for Indonesia ambitious plan to shift from unsustainable economic practice toward a greener economy. At that moment, Indonesia unveiled the Low Carbon Development Initiative (LCDI), a grand design development plan that emphasizes the transition toward low carbon development path to accelerate Indonesia commitment to reduce the country’s carbon emission as mandated by Paris Agreement 2015. Currently ranked fifth as global carbon emitters, Indonesia is still struggling to meet its development objectives without necessarily affecting environmental quality. The LCDI serves as a backbone for the formulation of Indonesia Five Year National Medium-Term Development Plan starting from 2020-2024. Meaning, it allows Indonesia development plan to be formulated on a more sustainable basis to meet Indonesia developmental objectives nationwide starting from 2020 onwards. It also shows that socio economic and environmental objectives can also go hand in hand to yield positive results.
Institut Deliverologi Indonesia (IDeA) has been closely working together with Indonesia Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) to develop report titled Low Carbon Development Initiatives in Fisheries. This report provides the steps and the insights on how Indonesia can achieve the transition toward low carbon development path in marine and fisheries sector, one of the key sectors discussed in LCDI. Marine and fisheries sector plays key role for a maritime country like Indonesia from social, economic, and environmental point of views. This sector is one of the country’s economic generators that provides source of living particularly for coastal communities while also plays significant contribution in carbon sequestration process. Therefore, it is important for Indonesia to build a strong foundation to manage its marine and fisheries sustainably to ensure the socio-economic prosperity of current and the future generations.
Low Carbon Development Initiatives in Fisheries identifies the current landscape of Indonesia marine and fisheries sector including the current challenges in three main subsectors such as capture fisheries, aquaculture, and fish processing. Additionally, it recognizes the linkage with relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and the regulation issues that becomes the constraint to improve marine and fisheries management. Also, through the series of the proposed initiatives, regulation recommendations, investment modalities, investment needs and gaps, fund mobilization, and the role of the stakeholders, ultimately, this report serves as a guideline at practical level to inform the future actions toward the improvement of sustainable marine and fisheries management.
