Indonesia, with its more than 17,000 islands, is an extraordinary place on this planet. It is among the countries with the highest river fluxes of dissolved and particulate substances into the ocean, the most abundant mangrove forests, seagrass meadows and coral reefs, and the highest marine biodiversity. However, Indonesia is also vulnerable to man-made environmental change and the outcomes of climate change. In order to face these challenges, the Indonesian – German inter- and transdisciplinary research and capacity building program “Science for the Protection of Indonesian Coastal Ecosystems” (SPICE) was set up. It addressed the scientific, social and economic issues related to the management of the Indonesian coastal ecosystems and their resources in three phases over a period of 12 years. This chapter outlines the major goals and themes of the program, its organizational structure, and it briefly synthesizes its major findings.
