Abstract

This study explores the intersection of mangroves and gender roles in Sepatin Village, Indonesia. In the backdrop of Indonesia's rich maritime landscape, the mangrove ecosystems, despite being the world's largest, face threats from conflicting interests. Pertamina's Blue Carbon Initiative Project, centered in the Pertamina Mahakam Forest, exemplifies sustainable practices and community empowerment. Using a participatory approach, the research investigates women's nuanced roles in preserving the mangrove ecosystem. The unique challenges of Desa Energi Berdikari Sepatin highlight the village's exceptional commitment to environmental preservation, despite limitations. Findings underscore mangroves' integral role in various community capitals and reveal distinctive gender roles, emphasizing the need to empower women in mangrove forest management. The study advocates for inclusive, equitable, and sustainable environmental project management, recognizing gender dynamics for successful initiatives. Insights from Sepatin Village contribute to a broader understanding of the intricate relationship between communities and ecosystems.
