ICFO training project for CBFRM

BOBP-IGO co-operation with International Cooperative Fisheries Organization – training in community-based fishery resource management in Asian countries

The BOBP-IGO is assisting and facilitating a Japan-funded training project for promotion of CBFRM (community-based fishery resource management) in Asian countries. The five-year project began in Fiscal Year 2006, and will go on till Fiscal Year 2010. One country from Asia is selected every year. Philippines was the first country selected for project execution, Thailand is the second.

The project is being implemented by the International Cooperative Fisheries Organization (ICFO) of the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA). The project’s stated aims: to promote CBFRM by small-scale coastal fishers and their organizations; strengthen their activities; and thereby help sustainable production, job opportunities and poverty alleviation.

The project has three phases for every country. Under Phase 1, Japanese and other experts visit the selected country to study CBFRM and make recommendations. Phase 2 – a team of select fishers from the country visit Japan to study fisheries resource management activities there. Under Phase 3, a concluding project workshop is held in the selected country.

The BOBP-IGO has been entrusted with report preparation and production. So far, three reports have been prepared of the project work in the Philippines and two of work in Thailand.
