Facilitate integration of indigenous conservation regulations — known as sasi — into the region’s legal framework. The indigenous organization Kewang has been fostering sasi to protect terrestrial and marine resources of Haruku Island. The project will revitalize sasi prohibition on the harvesting of certain natural resources and obtain recognition from government and stakeholders through sharing of best practices.

Strategic Direction: 4 Strengthen community-based action to protect marine species and sites
