With the broadening mention and discussion on land subsidence, the Indonesian Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs collaborates with Wetlands International Indonesia in the organization of a National Seminar on Land Subsidence Mitigation and Anticipation Strategy in Coastal Wetlands on Tuesday-Wednesday, 27-28 March 2018, attended by around 70’s participants from various relevant institutions.

Facts, challenges, and potentials to anticipate land subsidence and mitigate its impacts are brought forth in the series of presentations and discussions, so that a complete perspective and correct understanding are built in the broader community. By end of the seminar a Low Land Subsidence Declaration is produced as an extraction of the series of ideas surface during the seminar, to further be proposed to the government as recommendation to ecosystem restoration efforts in the coastal wetlands, both at the regional and national levels.
