14 Sep CTC Conducts Resource Utilization Monitoring in Nusa Penida MPA
CTC supports the Management Unit of the Nusa Penida Marine Protected Area (UPTD) in resource utilization monitoring activities. This monthly monitoring involves collaboration with several government agencies to support the management of the Nusa Penida MPA. This activity aims to improve user compliance with the zoning system and the utilization rules within the Nusa Penida MPA activities.
This monitoring activity took place on August 24th, commencing from Sampalan Harbor and covering the MPA area. The monitoring activities conducted by the Bali MPA team were focused on tourism activities and the progress in implementing business service fees within the Nusa Penida MPA. This collaboration involved the Bali MPA Management Unit (UPTD), the Community Stewardship Group (Pokmaswas), and the Indonesian Navy (Naval Post Nusa Penida).
During the survey, the team socialized the implementation of Regional Regulation No. 7 of 2021 concerning business service fees in Nusa Penida MPA. This regulation is according to the results of a public consultation that was held on August 22 by the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries – BPSPL Denpasar. This event was attended by various stakeholders, including tour operators from Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan.
Resource utilization monitoring is a key component of ensuring that utilization patterns are in accordance with the allocation of marine space that has been established in the MPA zoning system. CTC facilitates this monitoring activity as a form of collaboration between parties to support effective MPA management. The results of monitoring resource utilization can be used to determine future management policies in Nusa Penida MPA.
