Ecosystem-based Adaptation in Pekalongan City, Indonesia

AF-funded project in Pekalongan, Indonesia, is addressing the severe impact of climate change, with a third of the city regularly flooded due to rising seas and sinking lands. Implemented by Kemitraan, the project employs a “3-S approach” (Safekeeping, Surviving, and Sustaining), incorporating technical and nature-based components. Initiatives include constructing wave deflection berms, restoring beach sediment, and planting mangroves using innovative methods, aiming to mitigate land subsidence and enhance the city’s resilience.
