Project


Blue Forests began work in 2000 in Indonesia, initially as Yayasan Akar Rumput Laut, then as Mangrove Action Project – Indonesia before founding Yayasan Hutan Biru (Blue Forests) in 2011.

We have worked in 13 Provinces in Indonesia, as well as several countries in SE and South Asia.  Our programs are often integrated including Environmental Education, Ecological Mangrove Rehabilitation, Coastal Field Schools and Coastal Business Schools (livelihoods programs), as well as Good Governance and the Development of Adaptive Collaborative Management Systems.

All of our programs are geared towards empowering rural coastal community members to rehabilitate, sustainably utilize and conserve their precious mangrove and coastal resources. A table of our specific programs over the years is provided below.
