Following the adoption of the Resolution and Plan of Action on Sustainable Fisheries for Food Security in the ASEAN Region Towards 2030 (RES&POA-2030) in 2020, SEAFDEC organized the RES&POA-2030: Regional Workshop on Development of the Key Indicators and Detailed Roadmap on 23 to 24 March 2022 through a virtual platform. The Workshop aimed at discussing the proposed key indicators, reporting template, and timeframe for monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the RES&POA-2030. The Workshop was attended by 75 participants from the SEAFDEC Member Countries, namely: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam as well as Secretary-General and Deputy Secretary-General of SEAFDEC, senior officials and officers from the SEAFDEC Secretariat, TD, MFRD, AQD, MFRDMD, and IFRDMD.
During the Workshop, the participants proposed to conduct the trial exercise in providing inputs to the reporting template before the key indicators are finalized at the second Regional Workshop in June 2022.
The Workshop was one of the activities under the regional program of the Japanese Trust Fund project “Assistance for Capacity Development in the Region to Address International Fisheries-related Issues.”
