This report looks into the on-the-ground implications of MSP as it is currently unfolding in Indonesia: does MSP really solve conflicts and create win-win-win solutions on the economic, social and ecological front as proponents claim? Delving into a series of cases across the country, the report shows that far from solving conflicts, MSP creates new or exacerbates old conflicts over control of and access to coastal and marine resources. Such conflicts particularly impact on fishers and coastal communities who are the legitimate rights holders in these territories. As the report concludes, for fisher peoples’ movements the roll-out of MSP therefore raises important strategic questions concerning whether and how to engage in the process. With the increasingly global nature of MSP, the report’s analysis and discussion is relevant far beyond Indonesia.
