Indonesian mangrove forests are of major local and global importance for ecological and economic reasons. Indonesia has both the largest area of mangrove forests and the highest mangrove deforestation rate by country. Using the mangrove-fringed Segara Anakan Lagoon on Java as a prime example, this chapter explains the ecosystem services provided by mangrove-dominated coastal ecosystems, as well as the threats to it. Related governance approaches and interventions are discussed, while special emphasis is given to water quality, “Blue Carbon” storage, biodiversity, natural resource use, land use change, and the underlying political and societal dynamics. While ecosystem service supply is strongly impaired in the Segara Anakan Lagoon, mainly because of deforestation and high sediment deposition related to land use change, mangrove ecosystems in other areas appear to be in a better state. Finally, directions of future research and recommendations for policy and society are given.
