Thailand Fisheries Value Chain Analysis Workshop
Host: Thailand Department of Fisheries
Date: 31 Oct, 2019 - 31 Oct, 2019
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
USAID Oceans has been working closely with the Thailand Department of Fisheries (DOF) to support the country to develop and implement a robust electronic catch documentation and traceability (eCDT) system. Earlier in the year, USAID Oceans and the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) partnered with the Thailand DOF to complete a CDT Gap Analysis and held subsequent a Gap Analysis Socialization and Validation Workshop to discuss findings and identify next steps to further strengthen the eCDT system. Building on this momentum, on October 31st, USAID Oceans, SEAFDEC, and the Thailand DOF will hold a Fisheries Value Chain Analysis Workshop in Bangkok, Thailand. The workshop will be an opportunity for the partners to develop plans for interconnecting eCDT sub-systems and using eCDT data to enhance fisheries management.
