ICM in Indonesia usually applied by government institutions, NGOs or CBOs which concern about coastal area. But, sometimes they work partially and have their own perspective. For example the understanding from Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) has different with concept with Ministry of Environment (MoEn) especially for basic understanding concept for coastal itself. Training with specific topic is one tool for communication and sharing knowledge or experiences among stakeholders who concern in the ICM.
