Output 1: Policy and institutional frameworks for sustainable coastal and marine resources management improved

Indonesia:

Collection of 24,125 files consisting of digital GIS shapefile data, satellite imagery, technical studies and catalogue database have been completed. Fourteen staff in the MMAF have been trained on database management.

The study on live reef food fish trade (LRFFT) in Sulawesi region, together with the report on existing policies, laws, and regulations on coral reef fisheries, has been completed. The legalization on size limitation and management of live grouper fish trade (LGFT) in Indonesia through Director General of Capture Fisheries Circular and MMAF Ministerial Decree will be expected.

Output 2: Ecosystem-based approach to coastal and marine resources management pilot-tested

171 persons were trained on various aspects of coastal resources management and climate change adaptation as of 31 December 2016. The following training will be conducted by 30 June 2017:

-MPA management for local government staff of Provincial Marine and Fisheries Agency of North Sulawesi and District Marine and Fisheries Agency of Sangihe;

-Implementation of ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAFM) for stakeholders in Kwandang Bay;

Output 3: Effective project management established by ADB and the CT3 governments:

ADB fielded a review mission from 9-16 March 2017 and met with representatives from the coral triangle initiative (CTI) regional secretariat (RS) and the national coordinating committees in CTI Southeast Asian countries (CT3) from Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines. ADB has approved the proposed Youth Participation in ADB's 5th Asian Youth Forum and 50th Annual Meeting to be held during the first week of May 2017, and the Tri-national workshop on the establishment of a sea turtle marine protected area network and monitoring, control, and surveillance in the Sulu Sulawesi Marine Ecoregion to be held in Manado, Indonesia in May 2017.
