About HIC IDN 2022:
Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world consisting of five major islands, including Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, and parts of Borneo and New Guinea, and 30 smaller groups. With the current population of over 279 million people, their fish consumption reaches 46.49 kg per year per capita, making them one of the top ten fish-dependent nations in the world. Traditional and small-time fishermen are the majority and backbone of this industry. However, their position is vulnerable due to the lack of technological support and the loss of control over marine areas. This situation is worsened following unsustainable governance of marine resources which consequently cost the environment and affect the small fishing communities lives and livelihood. For the first time in the year 2022, we bring the Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference to Indonesia this coming November to connect various players and dig into possible solutions that can sustainably revive the ocean economy.
