    SIS OT is an operational tool for guiding a gradual assessment process on a specific country's (in this example, Indonesia's) integrated surveillance capacity and cross-sectoral information system for zoonotic disease. A cross-sector Surveillance and Information Sharing System coordinated by One Health (OH) is critical for the rapid detection of zoonotic disease events in a country, using information from animal health, human health, environment, and other relevant sectors. Under a cross-sectoral OH coordination, SIS OT assists national authorities in their efforts to create and strengthen zoonotic disease surveillance and information sharing (SIS).During the SIS OT workshop, participants agreed on the scope and rationale for zoonotic disease targets such as Rabies, Avian Influenza, Japanese Encephalitis, Nipah, Anthraks, Leptospirosis, and others. The followings were established during the SIS OT workshop, which took place from 5-7 October 2021: 1) a step-wise methodology for independent evaluation of current national structures or systems; 2) a list of target activities to be completed, a plan for improving surveillance and information sharing, and a timetable for the development of integrated surveillance national system for zoonotic disease; and 3) a list of resources to support the list of activities, based on nationally determined priorities and unique situational needs.The SIS OT recommendations will be implemented during three time periods. Each activity is led by a ministry/institution, with other ministries/agencies assisting its implementation. Since 2021, a portion of SIS OT activities have been carried out concurrently and will continue to be carried out according to the specified timetable.

    Improving States’ Capacities to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing - GCP/INT/307/NOR 2024
    Also available in:

    Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing undermines national and regional efforts to conserve and manage fish stocks, and inhibits progress towards achieving the goals of long-term sustainability. The detrimental effects of IUU fishing are particularly severe for developing coastal states and Small Island Developing States (SIDS), impacting national economies, livelihoods and the environment. In response to this phenomenon, a framework of international instruments has been developed in recent decades, the most important among them the FAO Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing, commonly referred to as the Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA). In this context, this Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad)-funded project aimed to improve developing countries and SIDS’ capability in the cohesive implementation of provision and procedures consistent with the PSMA and related international instruments, regional mechanisms and tools to combat IUU fishing. The main recipient countries of FAO’s legal and technical assistance and capacity development comprised Ghana, Guinea, Indonesia, Madagascar, Namibia and Sri Lanka. Several other developing countries, both Parties and non-Parties to the PSMA, benefited from the project’s activities aimed at strengthening regional coordination and cooperation on port State measures (PSMs)/the PSMA and complementary instruments to combat IUU fishing.

    Checklists and technical guidelines to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing
    Volume III: Checklist of monitoring, control and surveillance (MCS) systems, operations, procedures and tools
    2024
    Also available in:

    This document is the third volume of a series of publications entitled Checklists and Technical Guidelines to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing. This checklist provides a list of minimum requirements to ensure that the national MCS systems, operations, procedures and tools aimed at combating IUU fishing are of the desired standard to achieve the objectives of the fisheries management framework in place. This checklist is meant to serve as a reference for entities to review and assess such systems, operations, procedures and tools, in order to identify opportunities to improve these and establish best practices that will allow them to fulfil international duties and obligations to combat IUU fishing.
