Welcome to
Indonesia marine resources

We study and research on our complex social-ecological life, 

educate and advocate for our just and sustainable future.


About Us

Barunastra Foundation

Is a non-profit organisation based in Jakarta, focusing on research, education and policy advocacy on social-ecological challenges of this century. 

We promote research-based  interdisciplinary training and cross-cultural experience to develop a  holistic perspective of Indonesia's complex marine affairs.

Our perspectives

We take up on socio-ecological and economic perspectives seriously. We believe in the dynamic nature of our  ecosystem. We employ system dynamics to capture the underlying complexity of archipelagic territoriality and Indonesia's marine ecology. We think forward to find alternative and better ways to steward and live with our ecosystem.


We are looking for like-minded partners who value ecological sustainability, cultural diversity, and social-economic justice.
