Economic Analysis for the Indonesian Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries

As part of a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation, and in cooperation with IPB (Bogor Agriculture University) Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, CSF is developing an economic analysis and a set of recommendations to the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) and the Government of Indonesia (GOI) for implementing the Presidential Instruction on the Acceleration of Development of the National Fishery Industry.

Fishery Opportunity Analyses in Latin America

As part of a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation, CSF is conducting fishery opportunity analyses in three Latin American countries with important fishery sectors: Peru, Chile and Mexico. These analyses are designed to help CSF identify the best ways and geographies in which to grow our integrated marine and fisheries strategy, which helps to improve conservation decisions by incorporating sound economics into marine and fisheries management. Until now, CSF’s Oceans and Fish program has been focused on the Indo-Pacific region, but with this timely support, we are beginning to lay the groundwork to expand our marine program in Latin America, where CSF has a long-standing terrestrial presence.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!

In May 2016, staff from the CSF Brazil team travelled to the Salgado Paraense region, located on the northern coast of the state of Pará.  Their goal was to collect important information as part of our project on the sustainability of mangrove ecosystems. This project seeks to sensitize the government and society to the benefits these ecosystems provide, and make recommendations about economic instruments that could be used to promote financial sustainability of protected areas.
