EAFM Technical Advisory Team and Grantee Meeting
Host: USAID Oceans

Location: Manila, Philippines
Earlier this year, USAID Oceans awarded two grants for “The use of eCDT data for improving fisheries management.” Under these grants, the awardees – Masyarakat Dan Perikanan Indonesia (MDPI) and Mindanao State University (MSU) Naawan Foundation for Science and Technology Development, Inc. – are collecting electronic catch documentation and traceability (eCDT) data, conducting real-time data analysis, and using analytical results to inform local and national fisheries management decision-making.
On November 5th, USAID Oceans will hold a meeting between the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM) Technical Advisory Team and EAFM grantees in Manila, Philippines. The meeting will be an opportunity for Advisory Team members to provide input and guidance on grantees’ progress to date and identify next steps for development of their eCDT solutions.
