Conservation Strategy Fund helps local conservationists use economic tools to find smart, efficient solutions to the most urgent environmental problems. Since its creation in 1998, CSF has conducted dozens of analysis projects in forests, rivers and coastal environments. Most of our work has focused in the tropics, where extraordinarily high levels of biological diversity are found. To maximize the reach and quality of our work, we involve leading experts and conservation organizations in all of our projects.
Economic Analysis for the Indonesian Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries
As part of a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation, and in cooperation with IPB (Bogor Agriculture University) Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, CSF is developing an economic analysis and a set of recommendations to the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) and the Government of Indonesia (GOI) for implementing the Presidential Instruction on the Acceleration of Development of the National Fishery Industry. The analysis will help MMAF to (1) design incentive structures (financial, regulatory, and institutional) for a sustainable fisheries industry, including both the fish-capture industry as well as the post-harvest fisheries industry that includes fresh, frozen and processed/canned fish; (2) determine the feasible scale of post-harvest fisheries industry development based on sound ecological economic criteria which include bio-economics and Indonesia’s socio-economic and governance context; and (3) ensure investments into the post-harvest fishing industry are inextricably linked to sustainable fisheries management.
The study will include:
1. An impact analysis of Natuna and Bitung case studies.
2. A value chain analysis of Natuna and Bitung case studies and a national level analysis.
3. A macro analysis of current investment policy in the 20 SKPT locations.
