Abstract:This qualitative research aims to elaborate on the impacts and characteristics of the NGOs that support the local community and government engagement in marine conservation in Raja Ampat. Desk research and eleven semi-structured in-depth interviews were done to gather information and knowledge from the NGOs, local government, and local community. The SES framework was used to guide the interview, while Participatory Approach and Epistemic Community framework were used to understand the NGOs’ activities. The NGOs in this research increased the local government and communities understanding, knowledge, skill, and collaboration in marine conservation in Raja Ampat through their training, sharing, and assistance. One of the most significant innovations is the establishment of BLUD as the financially autonomous management unit of the MPAs, through the initiation of some of the interviewed NGOs. Regarding the characteristics of the researched NGOs in Raja Ampat, it seems only two have very similar characteristics, while the rest are pretty different, as seen through their conservation programs. Although, their aim is all the same, which is to achieve sustainable marine resources and communities.
