13 Nov CTC Hosts the First National Meeting of Jaringan Laut Nusantara (JALANUSA)
It gave us pleasure to have our Center for Marine Conservation host the Jaringan Laut Nusantra (JALANUSA) First National Meeting. Coral Triangle Center (CTC) was one of the initiators behind the founding of JALANUSA, a network of non-governmental organizations (NGO) centered on coastal, marine, and fisheries issues in Indonesia.
There were at least 30 NGOs from Jakarta, Bogor, Bali, West Nusa Tenggara, Sulawesi, Maluku, and Papua who participated in the one-day event held in our Center for Marine Conservation. CTC, Konservasi Indonesia, Yayasan Pesisir Lestari, RARE, Yayasan Masyarakat dan Perikanan Indonesia (MDPI), Yayasan LINI, Flora and Fauna International (FFI), Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility (TLFF), EcoNusa, World Resources Institute (WRI), Yayasan Konservasi Laut (YKL), Conservation Laboratory, Digital Mangrove, and others were among the participating organizations. At this event, CTC was represented by Marine Conservation Advisor Marthen Welly and Policy Coordinator Consultant, Haryani Turnip.
The results of the national meeting show that Atrasina Adlina from TLFF was elected as the National Coordinator for a one-year term and agreed work plan of the network. CTC is delighted to be a part of JALANUSA, and we hope that through this networking opportunity, we can initiate collaborations, share knowledge, and enhance the capacity between marine conservation NGOs.
