From Tourism Sector to Blue Carbon Economy and Sustainability
The Indonesian regions of Bali, West Nusa Tenggara, and East Nusa Tenggara have undergone a transformative shift from relying heavily on tourism to focusing on sustainable agriculture and community development. The tourism boom, fueled by the allure of Bali’s beauty and cultural heritage, provided significant economic benefits until the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted international travel, revealing the vulnerability of single-industry economies.
In response, locals returned to traditional farming and fishing livelihoods, though many lacked the necessary skills for success. To address this, collaborations between governments, NGOs, and private entities were formed to provide technical training and empower farmers and fishers. Challenges arose from imbalances in the agricultural and marine supply chain, prompting a reevaluation of distribution fairness.
Farming Empowerment Through Technical Training and Innovation
Efforts shifted towards empowering local communities and preserving cultural practices. This involved refining farming techniques through collaboration between academia, experts, and farmers, promoting competitive prices for produce, and supporting smallholders and cooperatives. As seaweed farmer in Indonesia, we exemplified these principles with innovation and sustainably, demonstrating the potential of businesses to align with community and environmental needs.
The journey from tourism dependence to sustainable agriculture and marine product highlighted the importance of adaptability, innovation, and cooperation. The pandemic-induced pivot illustrated the need for diversified economies, capable of withstanding unforeseen shocks. This transition emphasized the value of public-private collaboration in creating holistic ecosystems for growth.
