Coastal privatisation threatens Indonesian communities

Working in conjunction with the Forest Peoples Programme and KIARA in Jakarta, Ecostorm has carried out an investigation in Sumatra that lifts the lid on plans to privatise the entire length of Indonesia’s 80,000km coastline. If the coastal privatization law known as HP-3 is ratified, vast coastal concessions will be granted to industrial prawn farms, mining interests and commercial tourism projects.

The resulting film produced by the Ecologist Film Unit – Selling the Seas – reveals the enormous harm that this law will cause to the tens of thousands of people who live and depend on the coastline for their survival.
