Business Development Officer. She will share the work of LINI as it relates to the community development implications and benefits that can come out of marine conservation and restoration initiatives.Yayasan Alam Indonesia Lestari, or The Indonesian Nature Foundation (LINI), is one of the few Indonesian non-profits working to promote sustainable fisheries in Indonesia. LINI works to support the conservation and management of coastal marine resources through the education and empowerment of coastal communities. Their work is primarily implemented through collaboration with local stakeholders including local government, community groups, the private sector and local NGOs. They work closely with fishermen’s groups in northern Bali to pilot reef rehabilitation programs. Healthier reefs have been the basis for improved and sustainable livelihoods in the communities they work with.
