The Indonesia Marine and Climate Support (IMACS) is a four-year project that is aimed to improve marine resources management in Indonesia. IMACS is working to strengthen the management capacity of the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) and local government, enhance local communities and the private sector engagement through open and transparent governance, and provide technical support for key activities that support marine resources management and communities’ empowerment.
The project aims to improve coastal communities’ responses to near-term disasters and long-term impact created by climate change. Partnering with the government of Indonesia, the project addresses risks affecting its coastal inhabitants by building the capacity of the MMAF. The project is improving biodiversity resilience for food and economic security and increasing the resilience of natural ecosystems and coastal communities to adapt to climate change and reduce risks from disasters.
The program is being implemented through a partnership with the Government of Indonesia (GOI) through MMAF, coordination with other USAID marine implementing partners, and other relevant stakeholders in Indonesia both at national and local levels.
