    The year 2015 marked the end of the global Millennium Development agenda and 2016 heralds a transition to the new 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. Asia-Pacific Region not only met the MDG target of halving the proportion of people suffering from hunger, but was also the region with the largest reduction in the number of undernourished people in the world. Despite good progress being made by many countries in tackling malnutrition, the overall rate of progress is less than desired and the re are several countries and sub-regions where the prevalence rates are still very high. The analysis presented in this report will help encourage dialogue and shape a new public narrative towards eradicating hunger and malnutrition and creating a transformative change for sustainable development.

    Most governments are taking concrete actions to address the problem and there is a clear recognition of strengthening agriculture and food systems in a manner that brings more affordable, hea lthier and diverse food options within everyone’s reach.

    This report also introduces a special section which will focus on a different selected key issue or trend affecting food security and nutrition in the region each year. This year, the focus is on the importance of milk and smallholder dairy in view of the remarkable growth in the production and consumption of milk and milk products in the region. The section concludes that the promotion of milk consumption and small-scale dairying offe rs potential for triple wins in nutrition, rural livelihoods and the environment.

    This document is the result of country review and assessment missions to eleven Asian countries under the Norwegian funded FISHCODE Project GCP/INT/648/NOR) undertaken during January 1999 and October 2000. It focuses on the MCS component of fisheries in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myamar, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. The intent of the missions was threefold: 1) assess fisheries management and MCS capability; 2) assist where possible in adv ice for immediate MCS steps to enhance current systems, and finally, 3) assess potential regional or sub-regional mechanisms for cooperation in fisheries management, including the MCS component. The report first provides a comparative analysis of the findings of the missions, presents a synopsis of potential regional cooperation and then provides more detailed information and suggestions to enhance MCS on a regional basis.
