Indonesia has initiated the 30x45 Marine Conservation Initiative, aiming to expand marine conserved areas to 10% by 2030 and 30% by 2045. This effort aligns with the Aichi Biodiversity Target 11. Acknowledging the significant funding required, Indonesia is considering conducting a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) project to support the expansion of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The study aims to identify cost and benefit components and establish a methodological approach for the CBA. The expected outcome is a comprehensive report that will guide the expansion of Indonesia's MPAs, including the extension and creation of new areas, to achieve the 30% conservation target by 2045. This study has two objectives, i.e., (1) to identify relevant cost and benefit components and (2) to establish a methodological approach, both for cost-benefit analysis of marine protected areas development and management, to achieving the 30x45 marine conservation target.
