Coastal Ecosystem Participatory Conservation for Sustainable Welfare Improvement
Coastal Ecosystem Participatory Conservation for Sustainable Welfare Improvement
GOAL
The preservation of coastal ecosystem through rehabilitation of destroyed environment & empowerement of coastal community
OBJECTIVES
Objective 1 : Rehabilitating coastal ecosystems
Indicator : 1. Resources that have been degraded are identified & ecosystem is restored in a participatory manner
Activities : 1.Participatory restoration of mangrove areas
Restoration of mangrove areas that have been damaged through replanting activities that involve participation from community. Community participation is needed in order to synergize the aims & objectives of the activity. The success of environmental project like this should be made precisely, meaning that replanting activity will be meaningless if there are no preventive actions or measurements to minimize the cause of the damage itself. Therefore, participatory methods involving the community is expected to address the problem.
2.Recovery of coral reefs
Practices in catching fish in the community that are not sustainable, such as the use of bombs/explosives & the use of destructive fishing trap causing a decline of coral fish catches. The purpose of this activity is recovering damaged reefs & increasing community awareness on the status of coral reefs.
Objective 2 : Increasing community awareness on environmental issue
Indicators : 1. Community is involved in restoration efforts of degraded ecosystems.
2. Fisherfolks/coastal communities use fishing gear that is not destructive for fishing.
3. Coastal area is being used by the community in accordance to the land use.
Activities : 1. Early exposures on impacts of environmental for the younger generation.
Instilling environmental awareness to the younger generation is very important because early understanding about environmental damage & its preservation is required to establish an environmentally-aware generation. The targets of this activity are children & students. This activity is aimed to establish a young environment cadre. The activity is in the form of training or outbound or screening of environmental movies that are educative & persuasive.
2.Environmental tour
This activity is aimed to introduce young people as target of the activity in order for them to getcloser exposure to their environment & to other locations which can be used as a comparison on the existing environment. This ecotourism activity is expected to increase community awareness & to find innovation in the way to manage coastal area to increase family income.
Objective 3 : Increasing the welfare of fishing communities
Indicators : 1. Skills of fishing communities in managing sustainable of environmental resources are improved
2. Shifting of understanding from fishermen to aquaculture farmers
3. Improving family welfare by applying knowledge they have gained through training
4. Ability to think economically without damaging the environment.
Activities : 1. Training on seaweed cultivation
As part of the program, we truly realize that restoration projects of degraded ecosystem require a time to be seen as a beneficial project, because this is a long term program. Awareness that is expected to be instilled through dissemination should be encouraged by other efforts of fisheries resource management, one among another is through training on seaweed cultivation. This is based on the fact that seaweed is one of the economically valuable fishery commodities with relatively quick productive period & a promising market plus a market that easily reachable from Tulehu village to Ambon city. The goal of this activity is to shift the paradigm of being fishermen to aquaculture farmers.
2. Seaweed Cultivation
After training, the real application of the training is to carry out the cultivation. The selection of this aquaculture type is based on the fact that the water of the site supports the cultivation of seaweed. The target this group is fishermen who have participated in training. With this activitiy that are expected to sustain the welfare of fishing communities, the conservation efforts can be implemented more optimally.
3. Training on seaweed processing as economic product
The goal of this activity is productive women equipped with knowledge to process seaweed as the result of cultivation, thus it can sustain family economic. This training can be conducted after the first harvest of seaweed cultivation.
