Everything you need to know about our new waste bank initiative in Kiabu Village.
The highlights of the second term of 2021.
This September marked the first time Kiabu Village took part in World Cleanup Day.
In Kiabu, non-recyclable waste like used pads are incinerated, an environmentally unfriendly waste management practice that can affect the physical well-being of the community and lead to air, land and water pollutions.
Indonesia is struggling with managing its own trash. Not only is the country the second largest plastic waste contributor in the world, but it is also in the second place for the largest food waster, wasting 300kg of food per person per year.
If you are visiting Kiabu Village and wondering what to eat there, here are the four traditional foods that are loved by the local community and true culinary delights:
Anambas Islands Regency is known as a tropical paradise due to its remarkable marine biodiversity. One primary biodiversity type in this region is the ecological diversity consisting of three tropical marine ecosystems: coral reefs, mangrove and seagrass.
Zairul has been working as a traditional farmer in Telaga Village for 16 years. He is one of the few people in the village who choose this profession where the rest of community opt to become fishermen instead.
A small group of Bawah Reserve guests, including myself, were offered the opportunity to go and see the work of the Bawah Anambas Foundation (BAF) on nearby Telaga.
Mangroves are important for the sustainability of tropical marine ecosystems as they offer plenty of benefits for the environment and humans.
