FAO Indonesia: Request for Expression of Interest for Non - Individual Consultant

The project on “Mainstreaming Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use into Inland Fisheries Practices in Freshwater Ecosystems of High Conservation Value” (GCP/INS/303/GFF-IFish) is funded by GEF with FAO as the Executing Agency and the Government Executing Partner being the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) of Indonesia.

The project intends to combine mainstreaming of inland aquatic biodiversity into resource development and management policy, with demonstrations of conservation and sustainable use of inland aquatic biodiversity in critical habitats at four sites in Kalimantan, Java and Sumatra, and effective monitoring and assessment.

After development of participatory land management plans for the critical inland aquatic ecosystems, at the selected demonstration sites in peatlands, river basins and wetlands in five districts in Kalimantan, Java and Sumatra, resource users from 5 Districts at 4 demonstration sites need training in EAFM and EAA principles to allow them to be active participants in the implementation. Three local communities at each demonstration site in Java, Kalimantan and Sumatra will be trained on Ecosystem Approach in Fisheries Management (EAFM)/ Ecosystem Approach on Aquaculture (EAA) as a tool to implement the local land management plans for the targeted inland aquatic ecosystems, i.e. river basin eel migration ecosystem, beje and peatland ecosystem and Clown knife fish river bed ecosystem. In addition, fish farmers will be trained in collective action e..g. to form associations.
