The Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) stated that the Indonesia Coral Reef Garden (ICRG) program or coral reef restoration has succeeded in absorbing more than 10 thousand people as workers.
"Based on the data, the workforce absorbed from the ICRG activities is more than 10,171 people. Even the realization of the coral reef structure that has been built has exceeded the target," said Acting Director General of Marine Spatial Management of KKP Tb Haeru Rahayu in a press release in Jakarta, Thursday (7/1).
In addition, he said, the coverage area of the restored coral reefs even exceeded the target, from the original 50 hectares to 74.3 hectares or the equivalent of 95,768 structures.
According to Tb Haeru Rahayu, the payment of the wages of tens of thousands of workers involved in the ICRG was made non-cash through BPD Bali. Realization of wages also exceeded the target from the original 32 percent to 33.68 percent.
"Registered labor means those who have accounts, this does not include other workers such as boatmen and drivers. So if you calculate the absorbed workforce or those who enjoy the economic cycle from this activity, there are actually more than 11 thousand people," he explained.
As is known, ICRG is part of the National Economic Recovery (PEN) program promoted by the central government as a solution to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Among other things, to create jobs, maintain coral reef ecosystems, as well as tourist and educational sites.
This labor-intensive program which has been rolling since October 2020 has been carried out in five locations in Bali, namely Nusa Dua Island, Pandawa, Serangan, Sanur and Buleleng.
The total fund disbursed for the success of the ICRG is more than Rp. 111 billion, sourced from the central and regional governments. Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan also asked for the labor-intensive national economic recovery program for coral reef restoration (PEN ICRG) to continue to be monitored so that it can proceed as planned.
The PEN ICRG program in Bali was initiated by the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment with the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) and the Provincial Government of Bali and has now entered the stage of completion of the work. (Ant/OL-12)
