The objective of the Programme is to enhance the capacity, skills and experience of the selected participants with regards to the problem of management of sustainable fisheries, its scientific foundation and policy implications. This is directly linked with SDG 14 “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development” and its targets.

Selected participants should gain basic understanding of bioeconomic theory, knowledge of the Icelandic ITQ system, on sight exposure to some key management actions and improved confidence in discussing different methods used to manage fisheries in context of their home country.

Total cost of the programme was estimated to be USD 30.000, to be carried by the World Bank through Bappenas. GRÓ-FTP did not charge fee for its own staff-time. Additionally, GRÓ-FTP compensated costs incurred in Iceland in excess of the USD 30.000.

Beneficiary: Coremap-cti group from Indonesian Ministry of National Development Planning (Bappenas), Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries and one from the University of Halu Oleo.

Organisers: GRÓ-FTP organised and conducted the Training Programme (Stefán Úlfarsson and Julie Ingham) in cooperation with the University of Akureyri (Hreiðar Þór Valtýsson) and the Marine and Freshwater Institute.

Description

The Programme gives a concise overview of the concept of fisheries management, its scientific foundation and policy implications.

Special emphasis is put on a “triple bottom line” approach to sustainability, i.e. environmental /biological, economic and social.

Examples and case studies are drawn from the Icelandic experience. Lectures and discussions are augmented by site visits to relevant institutions and companies.

Throughout the programme participants will work on an assignment. In it, they will be encouraged to put their own fisheries into context with the content of the Training Programme.

On completion they will present key results in an open seminar.
