The OFMP II project supports Pacific Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in meeting their obligations to implement and effectively enforce global, regional and sub-regional arrangements for the conservation and management of transboundary oceanic fisheries thereby increasing sustainable benefits derived from these fisheries.
The project has three technical components, which are specifically designed to address the project objective with outcomes at three levels, regional, sub-regional and national, plus a component designed to provide for stakeholder participation and knowledge management, and a project management component as follows:
Component 1: Regional Actions for Ecosystem-Based Management,
Component 2: Sub-regional Actions for Ecosystem-Based Management,
Component 3: National Actions for Ecosystem-Based Management,
Component 4: Stakeholder Participation and Knowledge Management; and
Component 5. Project Management.
Structured in this way, the project:
PITIA is delivering on component 4 of the OFMP II: targets enhanced stakeholder participation, including industry participation in oceanic fisheries management processes, and improved understanding and awareness generally of the challenges and opportunities facing Pacific SIDS in oceanic fisheries management.
