CONTEXT

Nusa Penida is an Indonesian island, belonging to the province of Bali. It is located to the southeast of the island of the same name. The Nusa Penida Marine Reserve covers an area of ​​20,057 hectares and includes two smaller neighboring islands, Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Lembongan. The region is home to 296 different coral species. 48,000 people live in the 56 villages of Nusa Penida and its two neighboring islands. Coastal populations depend entirely on seaweed farming, fisheries and maritime tourism. In the land, agriculture and livestock are still strongly present. In 2013, the Marine Protected Area of ​​Nusa Penida (AMP) was created as a marine park with the dual objective of safeguarding marine resources and supporting communities on the island. Today, the success of this MPA allows it to be one of the best ranked in Indonesia and to be recognized as an exemplary site for the promotion of a blue economy.
