Indonesia | Government pledges to to create MPAs over 10% of its waters by 2030

JAKARTA — Indonesia plans to expand protection of its seas to cover an area nearly the size of Germany by 2030 — and then tripling it by 2045.

The country currently has 284,000 square kilometers (110,000 square miles) of marine area under protection, and plans to increase this to 325,000 km2 (125,000 mi2) by the end of this decade, or 10% of its total territorial waters, the fisheries ministry has announced. The move is part of the country’s contribution to the global “30 by 30” conservation goal, which aims to protect 30% of the world’s seas and lands by 2030.
