This project aims to strengthen Indonesia’s climate mitigation and adaptation efforts, and improve the sustainability of coastal livelihoods, by supporting the restoration and protection of mangrove ecosystems in North and East Kalimantan. Project activities include: (1) restoring degraded mangrove ecosystems and protecting intact mangroves with a focus on nature-based solutions; (2) building policymakers' capacity to better incentivize mangroves' restoration and protection; (3) introducing more sustainable fishing and aquaculture techniques to local communities; and (4) improving the licensing regime to provide vulnerable communities with greater access to mangrove resources. Beneficiaries include 20,000 poor and vulnerable coastal women and men, with women making up 40 percent of participants receiving training on improved livelihoods and restoration approaches.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced gender-responsive and climate change policymaking by national, East Kalimantan and North Kalimantan governments in protecting biodiversity intact and rehabilitating degraded mangrove ecosystems in State and non-State Areas; (2) enhanced gender-responsive mangrove ecosystem management by subnational Government, coastal communities, and other natural resource managers in State and non-State areas of the Kayan-Sembakung (in North Kalimantan) and Mahakam deltas (in East Kalimantan); and (3) enhanced gender-responsive and climate-smart livelihoods of poor and vulnerable women and men living in coastal zones in East Kalimantan and North Kalimantan related to sustainable management of mangrove habitats and biodiversity.
