The CRC is a strategic adviser to the Government of Indonesia on the issues of building coastal community resilience to hazards and climate change as well as improving fisheries management. CRC is a subcontractor to Chemonics as part of a larger, four-year (2011-2014) project — The Indonesia Marine and Climate Support Project (IMACS) — funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The IMACS project is designed to support the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) of the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in its efforts to restore and enhance marine and coastal ecosystem productivity, biodiversity and resilience for food and economic security. Other project goals include increasing the resilience of natural ecosystems and coastal communities to climate change and reducing risks from disasters. MMAF is responsible for promoting the sustainable use of fish and other marine resources for Indonesia’s economic growth and prosperity. CRC focuses on three activities: sustainable fisheries management, coastal management policy analysis and building coastal community resilience and climate change adaptation.
