New series of mangrove restoration works on North Java coast

The projectteam of our Building with Nature in Indonesia project started the construction of a new series of permeable structures on the coast of North Java. The structures capture sediment to recreate a stable environment for mangrove forest recovery. The coastal works are part of a largescale project called ‘Building with Nature Indonesia’ to enhance coastal safety in which the government collaborates with Dutch and Indonesian partners. The construction of the first dams started last year.
