Yayasan Mangrove Lestari (YML)


Yayasan Mangrove Lestari (YML) is a young indonesian Non-Governemental Organisation. It was created in February 2012 by inhabitants of the Mahakam delta (on the island of Kalimantan) with the help of members of the Mulawarman University of Samarinda. After having worked in multiple sectors (aquaculture…) and being implicated for years at a local level in mangrove reforestation and the development of local communities, the founders decided to create the organisation in order to be able to work in partnership with Planète Urgence’s Environment and Development programme ( Up to this day, YML is the only NGO which works in a permanent and exclusive manner in the Mahakam delta. The Mahakam delta is one of the biggest deltas in the world and faces large environmental and social problems. Around 55 000 people live in the Mahakam region. Some of the problems faced by the local population include a lack of revenue due to the decrease in the yields of their fishing. Deforestation has destroyed the ecological equilibrium and is endangering the biodiversity. In addition, gaz and oil extractions have created land conflicts all over the region. YML’s aims to restore the mangroves’ ecosystem via reforestation activities and to ensure the development of the local population through, for example, sustainable aquaculture and the sustainable use of mangroves to create nutritional and handicraft products. It also assists in the creation of stable community groups. YML works mainly in 3 areas: Saliki (3000 people), Muara Badak (5000 people) et Muara Pantuan (5000 people). In 2012, YML led a reforestation programme (42,500 trees around the Mahakam Delta) which was financed by Total E&P Indonesia (Exploration and Production). Since 2013, YML is putting into place a new project, the Mahakam Delta Integrated Management Program (MADIMAP) in partnership with Planète Urgence. Within this project, YML is leading the following activities: mangrove reforestation, awareness campaigns on climate change and sustainable development, instauration of micro-credit systems to promote the development of economical familial micro projects, assisting the local authorities in the management of the Mahakam delta, assisting the implementation of sustainable aquaculture, diversification of revenues through the sustainable use of the resources offered by the mangroves (nutritional products and traditional handicraft), enhancement of sthe local population’s capacities in managing their income generating activities and the creation of cooperatives. MADIMAP should beneficiate directly to 4,100 people over 3 years. Indirectly, through the awareness activities and communication of the results and the methods used MADIMAP should touch the populations of the 3 villages (15,380 inhabitants) and more widely to the population of the Mahakam Delta (around 55 000 people). Since 2012, YML is financed nearly exclusively by Planète Urgence. Planète Urgence assists also YML in the management of the project and its technical implementation via its delegate in Indonesia. The 2 organisations have a partnership agreement and are jointly looking for funds from private companies (Total), foundations (Kehati, Trafigura) or cooperative agencies. In addition to Planète Urgence, YML has multiple partners and supports: the local governments, PUSKIP (a research laboratory from the Mulawarman University of Samarinda), the Climate Change Center of Studies (Mularwaman University), the University of Wagenigen (Netherlands), the CIFOR (BOGOR) and other actors working for the protections of mangroves in Indonesia and Asia. 10 people are employed by YML.
