Acknowledgements

This project would have not been possible without the collaboration of several institutions. The BioManCO project is (partly) financed by NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences (project number 14753). This research is a collaboration between Delft University of Technology, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) and Diponegoro University (UNDIP, Indonesia).

The BioManCO project also makes use of the framework set up by Building with Nature Indonesia, a programme by Ecoshape, Wetlands International, the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF), and the Indonesian Ministry of Public Work and Human Settlement (PU), in partnership with Witteveen+Bos, Deltares,  Wageningen University & Research Centre, UNESCO-IHE, Blue Forests, and Von Lieberman, with support from the Diponegoro University (Undip), and local communities.

We are also very thankful to the all the BSc and MSc students who have supported us in the field and the laboratory, from both Indonesia and the Netherlands.
