1.5 Problem definition
The Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries ( MMAF) endeavours to maximise use of
the potential of the marine resources of Indonesia, addressing issues and challenges like year
round food security, the production of non - fossil energy and the supply of fresh water, in order
to support the sustainable development of its smaller and larger islands. In this context MMAF
likes to develop a long term study / scenario building project to identify the potential of its
marine resources, taking into account ecological, economics and social aspects. MMAF would
like to do so in close cooperation with a group of experts of the Wageningen University (CDI,
FBR, PRI) . The expected final result will be a national marine / ocean utilization policy and
development strategy for Indonesia.
1.6 Target Audience and knowledge requirement
The Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF), Center for Marine and
During the initial phase of the project, Wageningen University will initiate an information
exchange / inquiry trajectory with the MMAF to identify and appraise the relevance and
perspectives of thematic topics as related to marine bio-based development in Indonesia
Need for knowledge and expertise in the field of marine aquaculture: seaweed cultivation,
harvesting and processing; bio-refining for food and non-food applications; climate change and
sustainable agro-food production; green energy.
1.7 Objective of the project
The long term goal of this project is the development of a roadmap for marine biobased
economic development in Indonesia.
During the initial formulation phase, Wageningen University (CDI, FBR, PRI) will draft a project
outline, in close cooperation with MMAF. This project outline will include the steps to be taken
for the development of a roadmap for marine biobased economic development and will include
the establishment of a knowledge base. Opportunities for cooperation with the private sector
and knowledge centres like Universities and Polytechnics will be explored.
1.8 Relevance for EL&I
Over the past decade, LNV has shown an increasing interest in innovative utilization of the
production potential of coastal and marine resources. This BOCI project offers LNV an
opportunity to bring its policies regarding sustainable marine and coastal development into
practice, while taking account the increasing need for management of marine biodiversity.
1.9 Approacha nd time line
1. Assessment on potential food and non-food bio-based products from the marine sector in
2. Email exchange and virtual workshops with MMAF: i) to present/discuss information ii) to
identify the most promising product-market value chains, and iii) to identify opportunities to
establish a public-private working group on a Marine Biobased Economy.
3. Exploring EC and public counter funding possibilities for further implementation.
4. Discussion of the draft outline for the development of a Roadmap on a Marine Biobased
Economy in Eastern Indonesia (joint working group activity).

1.11 Budget explanation
The original budget request was for € 125 000. For a number of reasons this budget was
reduced to € 25 000 in order to first identify and explore the ways of cooperation between
MMAF and WUR and the feasibility of the development of the roadmap as requested by MMAF.
The budget will be equilly divided between the Dutch partner institutions :
DLO – Institute Name(s) Role in the project
Centre for Development Petra Spliethoff PL, existing contact to Ministry and
Innovation (CDI) local stakeholder network, expert
Food and Biobased Research Ana Lopez-Contreras Roadmapping & Biorefining for food
(FBR) and non-food applications
Plant Research International Willem Brandenburg Macro-algae/Seaweeds cultivation
(PRI) & harvesting
As there will be insufficient budget to visit the project area, the discussions / virtual workshops
during the first phase of this project will have to be based on theoretical assumptions and
1.13 Involvement other stakeholders
It is expected that in a later phase other parties, including the private sector, will be taken on
board for the pilot testing, experimentation and action research (esp. product-market value
This phase of the project is meant to establish proper ways and channels of communication and
knowledge exchange between MMAF and Wageningen UR.
Initial contact with the Executive Director of the Center for Marine and Fisheries Cooperation
has been established. As the project leader is acquainted with working with MMAF and familiar
with the Indonesian culture and language and as the project team is well-qualified, interested
and committed to implement the project, it is expected that the first phase of this project will
achieve the objectives / results as set.

CDI provides the Principle Technical Advisor to the NUFFIC (251) FISH4 Programme (running) in
Eastern Indonesia on strengthening Indonesian university expertise on marine aquaculture
(involved local partners: UNPATTI (Ambon), UNKHAIR (Ternate), Kupang (West Timur) and
Polykant (Tual, Kei isles). This programme intends to implement a joint activity in 2011 on
seaweed cultivation and processing in Eastern Indonesia, paying due attention to ecological,
environmental and economic aspects. As CDI maintains good relations with these 4 institutes,
contacts and pilot experiments may be used to the benefit of the BOCI project.
FBR has main expertise in developing full biomass (incl. seaweeds) value chains, incl. logistics
and biorefining technologies, for both food and non-food applications. FBR also has developed
the Dutch Biorefinery Roadmap for LNV (2009).
PRI has main expertise in the controlled cultivation and harvesting of seaweeds in combination
with wind energy and/or fish farming - i.e. multifunctional sustainable sea use (potential
knowledge dissemination from Dutch agro- and offshore sectors “Bio-offshore” to Indonesia).
