Institutional collaboration is key to regulating coastal fisheries in Kiribati

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Kiribati made significant progress towards strengthening national coastal fisheries governance with the recent National Consultation Workshop on Kiribati Coastal Fisheries Regulations, organised under the Coastal Fisheries Governance Project funded by

    the New Zealand Government. The workshop was held in Tarawa on 8–9 May 2018, and was attended by approximately 30

    representatives from Kiribati’s Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources Development (MFMRD), Ministry of Internal Affairs

    (MIA), Ministry of Women, Youth and Social Affairs (MWYSA), Ministry of Environment, Lands and Agriculture Development (MELAD), the Office of the Attorney General (OAG), a local fishers’ association, donor partners, and a team from the

    Pacific Community (SPC) and the Pathways Project. The workshop provided an important opportunity for key stakeholders to

    come together, share information and experiences, and explore opportunities for future cooperation.
