Abstract: "In Maluku Province, in eastern Indonesia, natural resources are managed under a locally defined set of rules and regulations called sasi. Sasi has been in place for over 400 years. It is embedded in the local culture and based on customary law (adat). While sasi, or remnants of it, are still being practiced on most islands (Ambon, Seram and the Lease Islands), in parts of Maluku it is in the process of dying out. From 1996-1998 a study was carried out by researchers from ICLARM (Philippines) and Yayasan Hualopu, a local NGO, to study the presence of sasi, the degree of activity and the reasons for loss or survival of sasi. The results of the study can be useful in the revitalisation of traditional institutions or in the process of institution building in the context of co-management."
