Abstract

Economic development, low carbon development, green economy, millennium development goals (MDGs), blue economy and sustainable development goals (SDGs) became strategies to develop human resources, health, carrying capacity for environment, income per capita, competency, skills, and eradicate poverty. Various development strategies implemented are delivering results related to the development of a significant focus. Furthermore, the success of the increase in seaweed commodities also depends on the direction of economic development policies undertaken by the country Some countries apply seaweed cultivation by using biotechnology to improve the quantity and quality of seaweed produced. However, the capacity of the processing industry in Indonesia is still not enough to absorb domestic raw materials so that seaweed processing industry is only able to absorb 20-25% of Indonesian seaweed production in Indonesia. A strategy to increase the capacity of seaweed cultivation and processing can be formulated in several stages, such as technology transfer, incorporating technology into existing industries, business development, attracting foreign investment, critical investigations, and social and environmental improvements.
