BULELENG - The National-Indonesian Coral Reef Garden Economic Recovery Program (PEN-ICRG) in Buleleng, was able to improve the economy of the community affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The program is able to absorb jobs to create coral reef structures whose current program realization has penetrated 92 percent.
Assistant for the Economy and Development of the Buleleng Secretariat, Ni Made Rousmini, Thursday (7/1/2021) said Buleleng was chosen to be one of the regencies in Bali to run the program. "The realization is quite high and exceeds the target set," said Rousmini.
He explained that this coral reef restoration program, apart from being part of the national economic recovery, is also able to absorb labor and can become a marine tourism destination through the arrangement of coral reefs. "The Buleleng Regency Government has managed to absorb the budget of up to Rp. 14 billion, more than the total disbursed funds of more than Rp. 15 billion," said Rousmini.
Meanwhile, the Head of the Buleleng Food and Fisheries Security Service, Gede Melandrat, said that the ICRG was carried out in six villages and seven points, which was completed as of December 7, 2020. For this stage, maintenance will be carried out until the end of January 2021.
In fact, the restoration of coral reefs in Buleleng is planned for 4 hectares in the sea. However, Buleleng can reach up to 7.4 hectares. The percentage of physical work has been completed 100 percent with the realization of financial absorption of 92 percent. "This is an extraordinary achievement because of the budget of more than Rp. 15 billion, only around Rp. 14 billion has been absorbed without reducing the physical structure," explained Melandrat.
The resulting structures, both in the form of statues and others, will be used as new tourist destinations at sea in the future. Moreover, Buleleng, specifically in Pemuteran Village, has carried out restoration of the underwater world with biorock. "The Biorock in Pemuteran Bay is the most successful project," said Melandrat.
PEN-ICRG is a program of the Coordinating Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Investment (Kemenko Marves) with the Indonesian Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) and the Bali Provincial Government, as a restoration of this coral reef as part of the national economic recovery in the conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic.
