The Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) is implementing the Ocean Partnerships for Sustainable Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation Project (OPP) in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean region. OPP is financed by the World Bank with funds provided by the Global Environment Facility. Among other OPP activities, FFA is responsible for conducting knowledge sharing and promoting inter-regional cooperation with developing coastal States and other stakeholders globally.
As part of this work, FFA will convene a Pacific - Global Zone-based Tuna Fisheries Management Exchange (the “study tour”), whereby representatives of other regions that host tuna fisheries will be invited to visit FFA Headquarters in Honiara, Solomon Islands. Over the course of a four-day visit, participants will examine and discuss the “Pacific model” for fisheries cooperation, with a specific focus on the benefits (biological, economic and social) of zone-based management arrangements.
FFA is now seeking the services of a Consultant to assist with this activity.
The attached EOI document provides the detail for this consultancy, closing off August 11 2017 at 5pm Solomons time.
