18 Jun 2015 | newsletter   Issue 1 on Building Knowhow on the Application of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management in Sabah
The ADB /GEF-supported Regional Technical Assistance for Coastal and Marine Resources Management in the Coral Triangle - Southeast Asia (CTI-SEA) is being implemented in the Sulu-Celebes/Sulawesi Large Marine Ecosystem, which includes Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines (CT3). Experts from the CT3 have identified overexploitation of marine resources and habitat loss among the key problems in transboundary waters. Specifically, the coral reef fisheries in the region have been adversely affected by the high demand for live grouper; rampant illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing; and the rapidly growing population in coastal areas. To address these critical issues, the CTI-SEA has taken steps to address IUU fishing at both the regional and national levels. In Malaysia, the project is building the capacity of government staff and other concerned stakeholders on the application of the ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAFM) for coral reef fishes. This experience note discusses CTI-SEA's training on Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management to a total of 56 fisheries personnel and stakeholders under a cost-sharing scheme with DOF Sabah and DOF Malaysia.

11 May 2015 | report   Gulf of Mexico LME - Strategic Action Programme (SAP)
This Strategic Action Programme (SAP) is a policy document negotiated by the governments of United Mexican States (Mexico) and the United States of America (U.S.) through the coordination of the appointed Technical National Focal Points to the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem Project (GoM LME), the Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT) of Mexico and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the U.S. The document outlines the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the GoM LME and aims to promote shared policy goals and legal and institutional actions to address priority transboundary problems that have been previously identified by both NOAA and SEMARNAT in the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA). The TDA was completed in October 2011 and is the primary source of scientific and technical information for the recommended strategic actions presented. This document and the TDA have been developed as part of the project, “Integrated Assessment and Management of the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem”, with the financial support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the implementation support of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

30 Mar 2015 | newsletter   Issue 1 on Climate Change Adaptation: Seaweed-producing village heeds wake-up call for early action adaptation planning
The climate change adaptation subproject of CTI-SEA in Indonesia aims to raise the awareness of national and local government planners as well as coastal communities about climate change. As a first step, a participatory vulnerability assessment (VA) was conducted in Arakan, Tatapaan, South Minahasa in February 2014 using the Guide to Vulnerability Assessment and Local Early Action Planning (LEAP) tool. Results showed that the village was vulnerable to the impacts of climate change due to their exposure, high sensitivity and low capacity of the community. The process not only catalyzed local early action but also taught citizens that they had to develop their own adaptation plans based on their needs and ensure that these are ready for institutional support.
