During the meeting

Formed in 2009, the CTI-CFF is a multilateral partnership of six regional countries i.e., Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste striving to collectively sustain coastal and marine resources by addressing issues such as food security, climate change, and marine biodiversity.

This unique platform allows member states to address food security through sustainable management of the marine resources, taking into consideration also climate change impacts, amongst others. The five main goals included in the cooperative engagement include (i) Seascapes, (ii) Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management, (iii) Marine Protected Areas, (iv) Climate Change Adaptation, and (v) Threatened Species.

MIMA looks forward to further supporting the NCC and the respective Technical Working Groups (TWGs) established to address the aims and targets of the CTI Goals especially in terms of cross cutting issues, including stakeholders’ involvement, addressing marine pollution, and climate-change related aspirations.
