Climate drives seasons and regulates weather patterns. There is growing evidence that climate is changing. As a results coral reef bleaching occurrences are happening more frequently, threatening the livelihoods of millions of coastal people, wild fires increase, precipitation increases, habitats change and many more impacts can be perceived. There is a strong and growing consensus that humans have had a role in this change, and because of this we can help to slow down this process and help nature and communities to adapt to these changes (more)

Forest-Species Programme

In the last 50 years, deforestation and damage to forests has occurred in an unprecedented rate in the tropics, including in Indonesia. Estimates by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) put the rate of loss at 14.6 million hectares every year. Sometimes, cleared forests are replaced with agriculture or plantation crops, but often the forest soils are too poor to sustain them and result in degraded lands with little value for livelihoods, biodiversity conservation or economic development. WWF-Indonesia is working to protect the last frontiers of Indonesia’s natural forests, ensure sustainable management of production forests, and restore degraded forests.(more)

Marine Programme

The Indonesian marine fisheries sector is facing a serious risk due to overexploitation. Millions of poor coastal people depend on small- scale fisheries to fulfill their protein needs and to earn some cash for a living. Today, many fisher people are managing to catch less and smaller fish. From all the fish caught by small coastal fishers 70 – 90 percent of these fish depend on coral reefs, while according to the Ministry of Marine and Fisheries only 6 percent of Indonesia’s coral reefs are still in truly good condition. WWF-Indonesia is working with relevant stakeholders to create a network of Marine Protected Areas, in which communities are actively involved in the planning, implementation and reaping the benefits of.

Since 90’s, WWF Indonesia has been working on freshwater issues and its biodiversity in some priority freshwater habitats in Indonesia. Two Ramsar’s sites, Danau Sentarum National Park in West Kalimantan and Danau Biru in Wasur National Park-Papua have been supported by WWF Indonesia through sustainable watershed management approach. In the long stream flow areas of Kreung Peusangan and Krueng Sabee-Aceh; Kapuas Hulu-West Kalimantan; and Noelmina-West Timor, WWF Indonesia has been engaged with the river’s management authorities to develop an integrated sustainable watershed management.
