On November 29-30, 2016, Hatfield Indonesia participated in the International Conference on Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) and Marine Biotechnology (MBT) organized by the Center for Coastal and Marine Resources Studies (CCMRS) at the Bogor Agricultural University in Bogor, Indonesia. The conference provided a forum for ICM and MBT experts and practitioners from across the region to meet and discuss frontier ICM practices, and the latest science-based approaches, methodologies, tools, and technological advancements in this important field. Recent developments in the field of marine biotechnology covering bioprospecting, marine natural products, and marine environmental biotechnology were also addressed.

Hatfield Indonesia marine unit manager, Dr. Lida Pet-Soede, presented a key-note address at the event. In her address, Dr. Pet-Soede provided a review of integrated coastal management practices and how to create an enabling environment for sustainable and integrated resource management, investment, and partnerships, using an example of smart-design during port construction. This approach is captured in a proposed multi-year initiative, MADE-BLUE (Management and Development of Environmental Values to Build Linkages and Unite Economies), that is a joint venture between Hatfield Indonesia and Hatfield Consultants Partnership (Vancouver).

Hatfield Indonesia oceanographer, Priska Widyastuti, also presented on Hatfield Indonesia’s collaborative work on the “Mapping Ocean Wealth – Relevance for Indonesia’s tuna fisheries project”, a collaborative initiative with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) Indonesia, Bogor Agricultural University, and Bandung Institute of Technology.
