Community Development Projects
The program goals are:
To Promote the involvement of western Pacific communities in western pacific fisheries by demonstrating the application and/or adaptation of methods and concepts derived from traditional indigenous practices.
To promote the development of social, cultural and commercial initiatives that enhance opportunities for western pacific communities to participate in fisheries, fishery management or conversation.
To benefit the indigenous community who have not had capability for substantial participation in the fisheries or marine resource management in their native lands.
