    The Indonesian Seas Large Marine Ecosystem is a region shared by Indonesia (98 percent) and north coast of Timor-Leste (2 percent). Characterized by warm surface temperature and the Indonesian Throughflow (ITF) that contribute to climate regulation, the region is a hub of mega biodiversity with unique habitats and ecosystems that offer high fisheries productivities and various other valuable ecosystem goods and services. The region has been instrumental to ensure nutrition, livelihood and coastal communities wellbeing. However, increasing fishing pressures, human and economic activities have threatened the sustainability of the region’s resources. Through the FAO/GEF-supported ISLME project, Indonesia and Timor-Leste formulated the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) in close collaboration with national fisheries and marine experts and stakeholders. The SAP is a follow-up of the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA), an intensive, scientific causal chain analysis leading to the identification of the five Primary Environmental Concerns (PECs) to the region sustainability. With a vision to sustainable fisheries and healthy ocean in the ISLME area, providing ecosystem benefits for the long-term prosperity of the communities, the SAP aims to achieve three goals: ecosystem wellbeing, good governance and human wellbeing. The SAP’s five priority action plans are namely: (i) maintaining sustainable fisheries, (ii) restoring marine habitat biodiversity, (iii) reducing marine pollution, (iv) conserving ETP and other key marine species; and (v) responding to impacts of climate change. Each action. These are further elaborated into National Action Plans (NAPs), consisting 63 action plans for Indonesia, 25 action plans for Timor-Leste and 97 common action plans with an estimated total investment of USD 49 million over a five-year-period.The SAP, endorsed by both governments in January 2024, sets concrete timeframe, targets to achieve and the actors for each action plan initiative; and risks and management strategies to guide efforts towards sustainability.

    The Indonesian Seas Large Marine Ecosystem is a region shared by Indonesia (98 percent) and north coast of Timor-Leste (2 percent). Characterized by warm surface temperature and the Indonesian Throughflow (ITF) that contributes to climate regulation, the region is a hub of mega biodiversity with unique habitats and ecosystems that offer high fisheries productivities and various other ecosystem goods and services. However, its valuable resources have for years been increasingly exploited by various resource users.Indonesia and Timor-Leste, with FAO support, formulated the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) in close collaboration with expert stakeholders. The TDA is an intensive, scientific document that leads to the identification of the five Primary Environmental Concerns (PECs), namely (i) declining productivity and sustainability of ISLME fishery and aquaculture, (ii) degradation and loss of marine habitats, (iii) marine and land-based pollution, (iv) decline of biodiversity and key species, (v) climate change impacts.
