Description


Blue Forests began to work in 2000 in Indonesia. Originally, it was named Yayasan Akar Rumput Laut, then it changed to Mangrove Action Project – Indonesia prior to the establishment of Yayasan Hutan Biru (Blue Forests) in 2011. They work with coastal communities to build skills and knowledge in the sustainable management of their natural resources, in particular the mangrove forests and other coastal resources, thereby empowering community members to rehabilitate, sustainably utilize and conserve their resources.
