Sustainable upgrading of the South Sulawesi seaweed industry

Coming soon, our major report on the seaweed industry in a major production area in Indonesia.

Key points

  • The creation of a sustainable seaweed industry will only be successful through tackling several related elements
  • We have looked at these different elements and investigated them to develop findings that policymakers can use in making decisions about the best way forward for the industry
  • The opportunity is there to develop an integrated seaweed industry that improves economic returns to farmers and communities and could also result in capturing more of the commodity’s value in Indonesia rather than the raw material being exported.
