    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.

Until March 2020, the ISLME project team had facilitated the involvement of parties to take part in research and analyze the marine and fisheries issues in the ISLME region. Universities, ministries, provincial and district/city government working units participated in the series of activities mentioned in this newsletter. Findings and recommendations from the results of this research and capacity building programs are important for the Government to develop action plans for the management of fisheries resources related to ISLME. The Newsletter Vol. 1/March 2020 highlights main activities conducted during the implementation of ISLME Project, such as Fishery Survey in Timor-Leste, drafting Timor-Leste Aquaculture Decree-Law, and its direction. This edition also covers stories from the field such as the adoption of e-logbook for small scale fisheries in North Java, FAO collaboration with UNRAM to assess lobster fisheries status in FMA 573, and also, the result of ISLME Project Facilitation including EAFM training and workshops. Findings and recommendations are stated in this newsletter for follow up. In addition, the Governments of Indonesia and Timor-Leste have taken the initiative to fill the gaps in the ISLME area through a series of capacity building programs. Content and messages in this newsletter are expected to be known and heard by the partners, government, universities, NGOs, community groups, private sectors in Indonesia and Timor-Leste and the global community in general. These partners, institutions or communities are the targets of this March newsletter.

    Indonesian Sea Large Marine Ecosystem (ISLME) Project of “Enabling Transboundary cooperation for sustainable management of the Indonesia Seas” is a Project of GEF/FAO cooperation with Indonesia and Timor Leste to strengthen regional cooperation and support the effective and sustainable management of ISLME area. The implementation of ISLME project has been designed to improve fisheries resource management, in four Fisheries Management Areas (FMA or FMA) of Indonesia that are FMANRI 712, 713, 714 and 573 and the coast of Timor Leste bordered to Indonesia waters. There are three components of the project namely: 1) Identifying and addressing threats to the marine environment including unsustainable fisheries; 2) Strengthening capacity for regional and sub-regional cooperation in marine resources management; and 3) Coordination with regional information networks, monitoring of project impacts, and dissemination and exchange of information. According to ISLME Project Document (GCF/RAS/289/GFF), through an important process under component 2, the project are piloted at seven sites, four of them will be in Indonesia (FMA 712, 713, 714, and 573) and two in Timor-Leste and one in transboundary area. An intensive consultative processes have been conducted in national level, particularly with Directorate of Fisheries Resources Management, Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, and others related institution (e.g. DG of Aquaculture, Marine Spatial Planning and Management, Surveillance), and in the 7 provinces (Banten, West Java, Central Java, East Java, West Nusa Tenggara, East Nusa Tenggara and East Kalimantan) related to 5 priorities group of fishery, i.e. blue swimming crab, snappers and groupers, small pelagic fish, lobsters, and mud crab.
