Project Summary

This project seeks to develop a Guidebook on biosecurity and good aquaculture policies and practices implemented by APEC economies.

The guidebook will contribute to the strengthening of Health Services in APEC economies, by increasing the sustainability and competitiveness of the aquaculture sector through sustainable management, and the prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases.

Moreover, an online meeting with APEC economies´ specialized bodies will be arranged in order to exchange experiences and identify best practices and policies that contribute to the improvement and strengthening of aquatic animal health services in the APEC region.

This project will generate a direct impact on small aquaculture enterprises, since the aforementioned activities will generate useful and practical knowledge for their businesses and at the same time these measures if adopted by economies will improve secure aquaculture trade.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: In the last few decades the world has seen the emergence of infectious diseases of bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic origin in aquatic animals. These infectious diseases have become of the biggest risks for aquaculture. In that sense, these pathogens are a permanent threat, as they are capable of causing high mortality rates in aquatic animals, generating overall economic losses that have exceeded 3 000 million dollars[1] impacting specially on SMEs. Thus, it is necessary to strengthen aquatic animal health services in Asia-Pacific economies, by improving awareness and readiness of the competent authorities and of other actors of the Aquaculture Production Systems in matters of sustainable management, prevention and control of aquatic animal (fish in general) diseases in SMEs whose aquaculture production does not exceed 150 (MT[2]) of annual harvest[3] through good practices and biosecurity measures.

Aquatic animals from aquaculture consumption has a significance impact in the region since it provides nearly 22% of the average per capita animal protein intake[4]. In this context, one of the foundations of the food system in APEC economies is promoting the development of rural and coastal communities to comply with international requirements. Compliance, through the accompaniment of the health authorities, will strengthen SMEs´ resilience and adaptive capacity, and thus, improve their productivity and competitiveness. This will promote commercial exchange of aquatic animals and food production sustainability.

The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), to which twenty APEC economies are part, has defined the Aquatic Animal Health Services as: the agents that apply protection measures for the health and welfare of the animals and other international regulations and recommendations of the Aquatic Code in the territory of an economy[5], acting under the control and surveillance of the competent authority.

It should also be considered the development and implementation of strategies to reinforce Aquatic Animal Health Services in member economies, in order to holistically improve sustainability and competitiveness of the aquaculture production system, through the application of sanitary measures related to regional biosecurity strategies for small enterprises, being important to highlight that the aquaculture sector has approximately 50% female participation. Moreover, it is necessary to improve the capability of health systems to deal with the high risk associated with the likelihood of introduction, exposure and establishment of pathogens in susceptible populations since the grow of international trade in aquaculture products tend to increase the spread of diseases affecting the industry, and in some cases, inflicting economic and social disruptions at domestic and regional levels. The improvement of aquatic animal health services abilities to monitor and control diseases by reducing inconsistencies in policies and strategies among economies and thus, promoting a more efficient trade and development of the sector, is another important issue to be addressed.

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: This project is in line with GPA funding priorities for 2020 given that it complies with 2020 priorities: (i) Improving the Narrative of Trade and Investment and (ii) Driving Innovation for Sustainable Growth through the strengthening of Aquatic Animal Health Services of APEC economies to contribute to accomplish adequate sanitary measures to minimize the production loses in small enterprises due to aquatic resources diseases having an impact in sustainable and competitive growth.

Relevance – Capacity Building: In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, this project will promote the identification of best practices and policies in order to strengthen aquaculture Health Services in the APEC region. It will, thus, contribute to promote trade and investment liberalization and facilitation process by improving sustainable and competitive growth of aquaculture production, specifically small enterprises. This, in turn, will contribute to the economic reactivation post COVID-19. In addition, considering that the aquaculture sector has approximately 50% female participation in small enterprises, the project will contribute to the economic development and employment generation in the aquaculture sector after COVID-19 and thus, to greater women empowerment. The guidebook will be elaborated in order to contribute in developing a strong and better aligned Aquatic Animal Health Services in APEC members.

Objectives

Contribute with the strengthening of Aquatic Health Services in APEC economies, in order to increase food security, sustainability and competitiveness of the aquaculture sector by improving the sustainable management, prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases and thus, to facilitate the exchange of this products in the Asia-Pacific region in the context of COVID-19 pandemic.



Alignment

Alignment - APEC: This project is aligned with the APEC Food Security Roadmap Towards 2020[1] given that it will “promote effective management of […] aquaculture” providing “APEC member economies with lasting food security, as well as enhance their food supply efficiency and provide more affordable food for lower income consumers”. It is also aligned with the 2016 AMM Joint Statement[2] in which Ministers “remain committed to seek and develop common ground for promoting strong science-based food safety systems that meet the legitimate objectives of protecting human, animal and plant life or health”. In addition, it is aligned with the Fifth APEC Ministerial Meeting on Food Security[3] in which Ministers “encourage the development and implementation of integrated policies for agriculture, aquaculture and fisheries in line with the spirit of the APEC Food Security Roadmap Towards 2020 and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

Alignment – Forum: This project aligns with the work plan of the Sub-Committee on Standards and Conformance (SCSC) given that it will improve the capacities and strength of Aquaculture health services, as it aims to provide guidelines that will contribute to "[…] align national standards with international standards" and to "promote good regulatory practices in the preparation, adoption and application of standards, technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures"[4]. Moreover, this project also aligns with the following SCSC objective “Reduce technical barriers to trade and enhance market access through standards and conformance”, since this project seeks to strengthen the adaptation capacity of small enterprises, by accompanying the health authorities in meeting international requirements, and thus, improving productivity and competitiveness, and promoting trade and the sustainability of food production,.

In addition, this project aims sustainable development and it’s aligned to the 2014 Beijing Declaration on APEC Food Security in which Ministers supported to “enhance capacity building activities for researchers particularly in developing member economies; and facilitate innovation to accelerate the development of new technologies, new varieties and new methods for grain and livestock production and aquaculture[5].

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: Project’s outputs will be:

1.  Research Work

Information collection and analysis about preventive and control of aquatic animal diseases measures implemented in small aquaculture enterprises of the APEC economies (biosecurity measures, good aquaculture practices, and hygiene and disinfection). It is expected that the consultant will carry-out a research and investigation from:

a. Literature review

b. Online surveys circulated among related agencies.

c. Discussions from the online meeting

d. Case studies from voluntary APEC economies.

The timeframe for the execution of these activities will run from May 2021 to October 2021.

The outcomes of the research work will be included at the Guidebook.

2.  Online Meeting

The Online meeting will gather officials and policy makers in charge of aquaculture health services from APEC economies.

The meeting will be held on October 2021 and will last 2 days.

At the meeting, economies will share their impressions of the draft Guidebook, that will be circulated in advance. They will also share some experiences that will contribute with the Guidebook investigation.

The agenda main topics will be:

1. Explain the risk analysis methodology for the development of the guide.

2.  Revision of the guide, for receive a feedback from the economies in order to accomplish the objective of the guide.

3. Guidebook on Biosecurity and Good Aquaculture Policies and Practices

This document will promote the identification of best practices and policies in order to strengthen aquaculture Health Services in the APEC region.

The elaboration of the guidebook will involve:

1. The research work

2. The online meeting

The Guidebook will consider the following sections:

1. General information (introduction, basic definitions of risk analysis, general information on the aquaculture production center).

2. Steps to follow to structure the Biosecurity plan

3. Risk analysis principles for structuring the Biosecurity plan

4. Development of the model of Biosecurity Plan

5. Implementation of Biosecurity Plan

6. Annexes (formats to be used in the Biosecurity plan)

7. Bibliographic references

It is expected that the Guidebook, to have approximately 20 pages, will be an APEC publication and will be uploaded on the APEC website by November 2021, aiming to encourage its application through the main actors in each APEC economies.

Outcomes: 

1. Public officials will have the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge in biosecurity and management of aquaculture diseases in order to implement novel policies in their own economy.

2. Raise awareness about the importance of the sustainable management of aquaculture diseases in order to promote best practices among APEC economies.

3. Reduction of the risk of disease introduction in small aquaculture enterprises due to the implementation of the guidebook.

4. By the adoption of new management systems, it is intended to promote safety in the commercial exchange of aquaculture goods among APEC economies.

Beneficiaries: The primary beneficiaries will be high and mid-level officials and policy makers in charge of the implementation of aquaculture health services since they will be invited to participate at the online meeting. They are the project’s directly beneficiaries also given that they could implement policies from the information and recommendations provided through the guidebook for public policy purposes.

Indirect beneficiaries will be small aquaculture enterprises (which have approximately 50% female workers) of the APEC economies, which will use the guidebook as a guide for good practices.

Dissemination

The Guidebook on biosecurity and good aquaculture policies and practices will be published on the APEC website, after being endorsed by SCSC. Since health authorities from APEC Economies are the target audience, it is suggested and recommended to voluntarily publish the guidebook also in their websites.

There is no intent to obtain a monetary benefit from the Summary Report.

The Project Overseer will present the preliminary Guidebook at SCSC2 2021.

The Guidebook will consider the following sections:

- General information (introduction, basic definitions of risk analysis, general information on the aquaculture production center).

-  Steps to follow to structure the Biosecurity plan

-  Risk analysis principles for structuring the Biosecurity plan

-  Development of the model of Biosecurity Plan

-  Implementation of Biosecurity Plan

-  Annexes (formats to be used in the Biosecurity plan)

-  Bibliographic references

Gender

During the project, we will promote the participation of women specialists in aquaculture, specifically in the online meeting with specialized bodies of APEC Economies. We will encourage economies to nominate both female speakers and participant. With their participation, we would have a greater scope of the role of women in the health management of small enterprises dedicated to aquaculture activity. We expect to have a minimum of 40% female participation for both speakers and participants. It should be noted that most of the team that carried out this project (approximately 75 percent) and that will be part of the whole process of the project, are women.

In terms of impact, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization – FAO, in aquaculture, women are frequently responsible for most of the feeding, harvesting and processing of fish and shellfish, representing about 50 percent of the people working in this sector, and are involved in various activities along the value and production chains, taking key roles in input supply, extraction and cultivation, primary and secondary processing, and marketing[1]. They may become managers of small domestic enterprises, such as fishponds, and thus contribute to the improvement of their family's income and nutrition[2].

Since the guide seeks to benefit small aquaculture enterprises, women in this sector would benefit from the impact of implementing good aquaculture practices and could even increase their production and trade.

This project promotes the following APEC pillars of women’s economic empowerment:

·  Pillar 2: Access to markets;

·  Pillar 3: Skills, capacity building, and health.

PO is committed to collect sex-disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (and not only the APEC funded) from the project event. This data will be included as part of the submission of the Completion Report to the Secretariat when the project completes and will serve to guide future POs on their own gender parity targets.

Risks

Risk 1: Lack of interest from the economies to participate in the survey or propose case studies for the research work. 

Risk management: Contact every economy, specially the cosponsors, to gain their support and effective reply. 

Risk 2: Lack of interest from the economies to participate in the online meeting, where the consultant will collect feedback on the preliminary guidebook, previously sent to APEC economies, in order to incorporate their comments in the final guidebook. 

Risk management: Make contact with every economy, especially the co-sponsoring to gain their support and effective reply, given that it is expected that economies will share and exchange experiences in preventive measures that contribute to Aquatic Animal Health Services. 

Risk 3: Consultant’s delay in providing deliverables. 

Risk management: Request the consultant for the use of plans and production of reports to help measure and monitor project progress and close monitoring of the project time plan. 

Risk 4: Lack of interest from the economies to implement in their economies the recommendation provided at the Guidebook. 

Risk management: We have considered that APEC, as a non-binding forum, works on a voluntary basis. Nevertheless, the PO will together with related agencies to recommend and suggest the implementation of these recommendations, taking into account that they will benefit not only the policies that they would implement, but also small aquaculture enterprises.

Linkages

If needed, the consultant, during the collection of information and analysis, could request the participation [1]of various international organizations such as the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in order to contribute with information, guidelines and recommendations in the elaboration of the guidebook.

The project builds on previous achievements of the APEC Policy Partnership on Food Security (PPFS), in particular, the Road Map towards 2020 and the APEC Sub-committee on Standards and Conformance of the Committee on Trade and Investment (CTI) that promotes the reduction of trade barriers, through the adequate sanitary measures due to aquatic resources diseases, seeking to benefit small enterprises of the sector.

In addition, it is linked to the UN SDGs since this proposal is aligned to SDG2 and SDG12: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture; and Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns, respectively; and to the Agreement on the Implementation of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures of the World Trade Organization (WTO), strengthening the management of aquaculture diseases to minimize the production loses by the best practices exchange between APEC economies, contributing to the economic reactivation post COVID-19.

The project does not duplicate previous work, but it complements “OFWG 01 2018S - APEC Training Workshop on Eco-Aquaculture to Enhance Food Security in APEC Region”. This project will be circulated among PPFS members for comments and inputs. Non-APEC stakeholders, such as the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are expected to contribute with the guidebook through online interviews or other methods provided by the consultant. Likewise, the project includes an online meeting, with specialized bodies of APEC Economies, to share the preliminary guidebook, and exchange experiences in preventive measures that contribute to Aquatic Animal Health Services, in order to collect additional information of the policies implemented in APEC economies and from the circulation of the preliminary guidebook, receive comments.

Finally, we consider that APEC is the best option since it brings together 21 economies, which includes most of the leading economies in aquaculture issues. In this regard, they could share with their experiences in the application of measures for the prevention of diseases in aquatic animals, since by implementing these practices and biosecurity measures, they could guarantee the sustainable development of this activity in their economy. This is how these experiences could be compiled through the elaboration of the guidebook that can be applied in all economies, focusing on the development of small aquaculture enterprises in the region.



[1] They will be asked to provide the information required for the Biosecurity guide and will be invited to participate in the meeting as guests, since is very important to involucrate all actors relate to this issue, including international organizations ( such as : OIE, FAO, WTO and academia).

Sustainability

Through the meeting, the importance of government institutions intervening and providing facilities for the application of the guidebook in small aquaculture enterprises and female participation will be emphasized, in order to promote adequate health management that allows an improved trade exchange between economies.

Peru seeks to give continuity to the project, holding a workshop in 2022 to capacitate economies on the correct application of good aquaculture practices and security measures in small enterprises, supported by the guidebook. Likewise, it will seek to learn about the progress and experiences of the economies in the application of this health management tool, in order to compare our experiences and improve the management of the main intergovernmental actors

The Guidebook will increase the knowledge of officials and policy makers in APEC economies, allowing them to implement novel measures in biosecurity and aquaculture management in order to improve and increase the commercial exchange of these goods taking into account food security, sustainability and competitiveness.

The Guidebook will also allow SMEs to implement these new management measures in order to increase their production and access to new international markets.

Finally, during the meeting a satisfaction survey regarding the preliminary guide and the exchange of experiences the guide will be distributed (which is expected to be improved with the contributions of the economies during the online meeting).
