Project Summary

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the fisheries sector including the implementation of fisheries enforcement measures. In order to contain the spread of  COVID-19, fisheries authorities have to impose certain safety and health measures. However, such measures have reduced their capacity to effectively enforce fishery regulations compliance and ability to combat illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing. As the pandemic continues, it is more urgent to implement not only resilience against the pandemic but also effective fisheries enforcement strategies.

To address this issue and through the Implementation Plan of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Roadmap on Combatting IUU Fishing, Indonesia proposes to hold a 2-day workshop for all APEC Economies in August 2023 which will discuss enforcement strategies to prevent, combat and deter IUU fishing in the midst of Covid-19 Pandemic. The project will also focus on creating recommendations on effective fisheries enforcement strategies during the Covid-19 pandemic and post-pandemic recovery, including activities to return compliance and monitoring back to pre-covid levels through sharing of experience from all APEC economies and experts.

Relevance

Issues: The impact brought by the Covid-19 pandemic is very significant to all sectors of life including to marine and fisheries sectors of all APEC Economies. It has not only affected the coastal community’s livelihood, fishing practices,and fisheries market but also fisheries enforcement. Certain measures have been imposed to avoid the spread of  COVID-19 among fishers, vessel crews, observers, and fisheries inspectors. Many APEC economies have also imposed a lockdown for their officials and have reduced the levels of staffing. Some APEC economies, especially the developing economies have to reallocate their fisheries enforcement budget to fund emergency activities to contain the pandemic. As a result, there is a clear reduction in the capacity of authorities to effectively enforce fishery regulation, compliance, and ability to combat IUU Fishing in general.

In November 2020, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) released the second assessment of the impact of Covid-19 on fisheries, and aquaculture. According to FAO assessment, all areas of Fisheries Monitoring Control and Surveillance (MCS) (which also include fisheries enforcement aspect) have been reported to be, or expected to be affected, at varying levels through the different regions, including the APEC region. Therefore, to avoid the further negative implication of the pandemic, APEC economies are required to find a solution on how to implement enforcement strategies that both are safe and effective.

Considering the uncertain nature of this pandemic, further discussion to find effective fisheries enforcement strategies during the Covid-19 pandemic and how the strategies are also able to assist APEC economies to speed up post-pandemic recovery within the sector is very much required. Moreover, this project is also designed as a direct implementation of the APEC roadmap on combating IUU fishing,

The project provides assistance to all APEC economies in addressing the problems of implementing effective fisheries enforcement predominantly caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and to speed up the recovery process on the implementation of the fisheries enforcement to the pre-pandemic situation. The project will be started by conducting workshop preparation and selecting several APEC economies to be the presenter during the workshop by distributing a questionnaire to all APEC economies to collect initial information about the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the effort of combating IUU fishing, particularly on implementing fisheries enforcement and how the APEC economies mitigating the issues. The project will be continued by a workshop on sharing experiences and lessons learned among all APEC Economies. The output of this project is a recommendation to be applicable during the pandemic and in other similar situations in the future. 

Eligibility and Fund Priorities: As this project sought its funding from ASF General Fund, this project is designed to strengthen the capacity of APEC members’ (especially developing economies) policymakers and officers by strengthening and developing knowledge on fisheries enforcement, in order to improve their policies and regulations related to the implementation of effective fisheries enforcement during the emergency situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemics and also to assist the recovery of post-pandemic within the sector of fisheries enforcement. 

Capacity Building: This project directly aims the capacity building of APEC Member Economies to achieve effective implementation on fisheries enforcement strategies during pandemic and in the pre-pandemic situation through specific and focused workshop. Hence, in the 2-day workshop the following capacities are expected to be develop from the participants:

a) Enhancement of fisheries authorities’ capacities for not only to ensure the compliance of fisheries rules and regulations, but also ensuring that no fisheries violations occur, including but not limited to ensure the legality of the fishing vessel, the permits, the fishing process and the catch. In practice, it involves conducting inspection and investigation whether it is in the port or at sea with minimum human to human contact to minimise the spread of Covid-19 virus during the pandemic and with limited budget due to budget efficiency during the pandemic.

b) Strengthen the capacity of fisheries authorities to utilize health management tools and the use of technology as a key part of the journey towards fully reinstating law enforcement measures as they give a framework for operational officer to actively manage different situations and risks arising from Covid-19.  Therefore, to realize this capacity building program, the workshop is also expected to emphasis different tools that APEC economies can use to smooth this process. 

Moreover, there will be lesson learned and experience sharing among the participants from all APEC economies during the implementation of this project that can be used by the policy maker to help the implementation of fisheries enforcement activities during the emergency situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and to speed up the post-pandemic recovery process.

Objectives

The main objective of this project is to enhance the capacity of fisheries enforcement policy maker by producing a set of recommendations on effective fisheries enforcement actions during the Covid-19 pandemic that can also be incorporated during other similar emergency situations in the future and also to speed up post-pandemic recovery process within the sector.

This project is also a direct implementation of the APEC Roadmap on IUU Fishing, as mandated by the Implementation Plan of APEC Roadmap on Combatting IUU Fishing (Activity 2.2.a).

Alignment

Alignment to APEC: This project supports sustainable growth in the Asia-Pacific region by accelerating the implementation of APEC commitments to combat IUU fishing as stipulated in the 2005 Bali Plan of Action, 2006 direction to the APEC Fisheries Working Group, APEC Ministerial Statements, and recent APEC 2021 Leaders' Declaration.

The project closely refers to New Zealand’s  2021 priority “Increasing Inclusion and Sustainability for Recovery” and Thailand’s 2022 priority “Promoting Balance, Sustainability, Inclusivity in All Aspect” by continuing the ongoing work on combat IUU Fishing as this project aims to support the continued efforts of APEC economies on combating IUU fishing during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

This project also directly supports the APEC Roadmap on Combatting IUU Fishing by implementing one of its planned activities (Activity 2.2.a: Establish a regional workshop for enforcement strategies, to prevent, combat and deter IUU fishing related to the Covid-19 pandemic). 

Alignment to Forum: This project is designed to support the APEC Ocean and Fisheries Working Group (OFWG) priority work area “Sustainable Use of the Marine Environment” as stipulated in OWFG Strategic Plan 2021‐2023 through promoting the protection and conservation of the marine environment and the sustainable use of fisheries.

This project is also the implementation of OFWG 2021-2023 objective “Advance the implementation of the Roadmap on Marine Debris (MD) and the Roadmap on Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing” through direct implementation of one of APEC Roadmap on Combatting IUU Fishing activities.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: The outputs of this project are outlined below:

1. The 2-Day Workshop on effective fisheries enforcement in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The workshop is designed for 2 (two) days and aims to discuss the implementation of fisheries surveillance during the Covid-19 pandemic. The tentative location for the 2- Day Workshop would be in Jakarta, Indonesia with the expected date in August 2023. The APEC economies, experts, international organizations, and RFMOs representatives will be invited to this workshop. The experts are expected to deliver a presentation related to the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on fisheries enforcement activities. The participants from the APEC economies are expected to share their experience, lessons learned, and best practices if they have successfully overcome the limitation on implementing effective fisheries surveillance during the Covid-19 pandemic and identify a strategy toward effective fisheries surveillance post-pandemic. The selection process of 4 (four) speakers from APEC economies will be managed before the workshop through the dissemination of a simple questionnaire through online the preliminary survey to all APEC economies. The preliminary survey aims to cover the issues regarding challenges and obstacles faced by all APEC economies including their key success factor in managing effective fisheries enforcement amid the Covid-19 pandemic. The questionnaire survey would also discover women’s perspectives regarding the issues and its impact on women. The result of this questionnaire survey hence becomes the initial data to be developed and to be incorporated into the compendium of recommendations document that will be presented, discussed and finalised during the workshop and as a means for consideration to determine workshop’s speakers.  The chosen speakers from APEC economies are according to the APEC economies' best practices on the implementation of fisheries enforcement in response Covid-19 pandemic.

2.  Project Summary Report: A 25-page report of overall execution and achievement of the project the description of the project, the summary of overall messages and learnings from the workshop and a compendium of Recommendations on effective fisheries enforcement strategies during the Covid-19 through sharing of experience from all APEC economies and experts.

the summary of overall messages and learnings from the workshop compiled and highlighted the presentation presented by the experts and selected APEC economies’ representative and the discussion and also discussion process of developing the recommendation related to Fisheries Enforcement Strategies to Prevent, Combat and Deter IUU Fishing Related to Covid-19 Pandemic.

The Compendium of Recommendations will be developed according to APEC economies’ experience and best practices on implementation of fisheries surveillance during the covid-19 pandemic. Besides, the compendium of recommendations will also include the specified technology and method for enforcement and the adjustment of policy and regulation that can be applied in their respective economies. The result of this compendium of recommendations will list 7-10 fisheries enforcement tools and strategies during pandemic and post-pandemic recovery.

Outcomes: There are two specific measurable outcomes for this project:

a) Increased knowledge of the workshop participants on specific strategies, tools, and methods for fisheries enforcement that can be implemented during and post-pandemic and can also be incorporated during other similar emergency situations in the future. This outcome can be measured by a post-project survey sent to all participants on their understanding of the specific strategies, tools, and methods for fisheries enforcement discussed during the workshop and the relevance to be adopted into policy and regulation;

b) From the workshop, it is expected that APEC economies will benefit from the actions listed in the project’s recommendation. This outcome can be measured by the number of APEC economies adopting the project’s recommendations and to be tracked by a following-up online survey of the APEC member economies in 6-12 months after the commencement of the workshop

Beneficiaries: The main beneficiaries of the projects will include policy makers, regulators, technical government institution responsible for fisheries MCS or enforcement (e.g., government ministry, fisheries MCS authorities, fisheries management authorities and port authorities), Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and regional fisheries forum/organizations. The project's recommendations are expected to provide set of fisheries enforcement strategy that will be beneficial for aforementioned agencies toward effective implementation of fisheries enforcement during pandemic and post-pandemic recovery.

Direct individual beneficiaries of the projects include medium to high management level policymakers, fisheries inspector, fisheries investigator, and practitioners directly in the events and written outputs of the project. Policymakers, fisheries inspectors, fisheries investigators, port officers and practitioners from APEC member economies who work in fisheries monitoring, control, and surveillance sector with at least 5 years of experience in their position or work will be targeted as the direct beneficiaries of the projects. An equal gender proportion of the project's direct beneficiaries will be a priority.

Second beneficiaries will include other APEC Economies’ government agencies that indirectly take part in the effort to combat IUU fishing such as Navy, maritime police, maritime border protection authorities, fish quarantine authorities. These government agencies in bigger scope are being involved in the implementation of fisheries surveillance. Therefore, the report and recommendation from this project will be useful for them.

Dissemination

The Project Summary Report is submitted to the Secretariat for review and approval, then to OFWG for endorsement.  The Project Summary Report will then be published as an APEC document under APEC publication guidelines timed by December 2023. It includes the key learnings from the Workshop as well as the resulting Compendium of Recommendations incorporated. Materials from the workshop will be made available to APEC economies via the APEC website. The project will comply with APEC publication, copyright, and logo guidelines. The result of the project will be used to inform any future OFWG projects. The report is expected to highlight common concerns and appropriate next steps.

The target audience for this Project Summary Report are policymakers and regulators (e.g. policy advisers, policy analysts, managers, directors) from government departments in charge of fisheries enforcement of APEC member economies.

There’s no intention to sell the Project Summary Report.


Gender

We believe that both men and women can equally contribute to the effective implementation of fisheries enforcement in all APEC economies. The project will try to ensure that the gender balance of participants and speakers will be taken into account. Therefore, in the invitation letter to the workshop, we will ask APEC Economies to prioritize gender balance when nominating participants and speakers.

It should be noted that the field of fisheries surveillance is very specific, accordingly the number of experts working in this field is limited. As a consequence of that, it will not be easy to identify numerous female experts as speakers in the workshop. However, PO will work to ensure the target of female speakers/experts’ participation is reached by approaching female speakers/experts first. In this regard, PO is committed to collecting sex-disaggregated data for all speakers and participants (not only those funded by APEC) at the project event. This data will be included when submitting a Completion Report to the Secretariat upon completion of the project, as well as providing guidance to future POs on their own gender parity targets

The recommendation as the output of the workshop will identify if there are any gender-specific issues with regards to the implementation of fisheries surveillance during Covid-19 pandemic and highlight these in the recommendation so these can be considered by policy makers.

Linkages

Since the Covid-19 pandemic started in late 2019, several international or regional studies on the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the fisheries sector have been conducted including from FAO and SEAFDEC (Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Canter). FAO has released two assessments of the impact of Covid-19 on fisheries and aquaculture and SEAFDEC has also released a study on the Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Fisheries Sector of the ASEAN-SEAFDEC Member economies. Those publications are used as the justification for this project. The expert from both FAO and SEAFDEC will be invited to present their works during the workshop.

We believe that this project will not duplicate any previous APEC project or work because this project is designed specifically to address one of the current and latest problems in the fisheries sector that have not been covered by other organizations.

APEC is the best source of funds for this project because APEC is one of the largest regional organizations where all of its members are coastal Economies that provide approximately 52 percent of global fisheries. Any kind of effort to promote sustainable fisheries including the effort to combat IUU fishing will benefit the region, not just one economy.

Sustainability

This workshop is fundamental as it is one the furtherance of the 2019 APEC roadmap on combatting IUU fishing that has been adopted by OFWG. Moreover, the project is expected to provide a recommendation that provides a set of strategies derived from APEC Economies’ experience and lessons learned to overcome the limitation on implementing fisheries enforcement during the Covid-19 pandemic. After the project completion, the output will help APEC Economies to identify capacity-building opportunities going forward, and even find policy gaps and establish policy adjustments if needed.

Therefore, we believe that the outputs will provide ongoing benefits to the beneficiaries.

Moreover, the output of this project is also expected to promote innovation and technological breakthroughs that will improve efficiency and effectiveness of the implementation of fisheries enforcement in general, especially for post-pandemic recovery.

Possible next steps after the completion of the Project Summary Report and recommendations will be for the OFWG to agree to future action or way forward. The suggestion for future activities, if necessary, can be included in the implementation plan of the APEC road map on combating IUU fishing.
