This contribution links global and local issues, using case studies from Indonesia as a focus for a discussion of national policy and governance approaches, and to illustrate how these relate to livelihoods and to coastal and marine resource management. Climate change is a major aspect of global, including environmental, change. Both are linked to the economic, social and cultural dimension. Observations in Indonesia show that globalization and climate change produce repercussions on local coastal developments and livelihoods. Although the Indonesian government has set the stage for linking ocean developments and coastal threats to climate change, it remains to be seen whether or not their efforts will be adequate to address the real needs of the populations most affected. It also seems that the contemporary "climate divide" represents a new version of the old conflict between the developed and the developing world on environmental issues, globally as well as locally. Multi-level, interdisciplinary social ecological research is advocated in order to explore feedbacks between global change and local livelihood dynamics.
