Title: CREATING THE INTERNATIONAL STANDARD FOR THE TRADE IN LIVE REEF FOOD FISH


1
CREATING THE INTERNATIONAL STANDARD FOR THE TRADE
IN LIVE REEF FOOD FISH
2
PROJECT GOAL
  • Build stakeholders consensus on what "best
    practices" needed.
  • Establishing limitations of acceptability of an
    International Standard through extensive informal
    and formal consultations with industry, relevant
    government and non-government organizations and
    expertise in the LRFFT in both SE Asia and the
    Pacific

3
Scope of the Live Reef Food Fish Standard
4
STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
  • Multi-stakeholder involvement achieved through
  • Expert workshops
  • Standards Advisory Group
  • In-country consultative seminars and workshops
  • In-country field-testing

5
RTs Kick off with Objectives Principles
6
INTERNATIONAL STANDARD OBJECTIVES
  • Promote sustainable harvesting / production of
    fishery resources
  • Be compliant with existing local and national
    (and international) authorities
  • Recognize rights of fishers and other
    stakeholders
  • Ensure stakeholder cooperation and involvement
  • Recognize socio-economic, gender and poverty
    issues

7
STANDARDS STRUCTURE
  • A Principle type approach was adopted in
    recognition of the need for the Standard to be a
    concise document
  • A Standard that consists of bullet criteria with
    underlying descriptors
  • A Standard augmented by supporting documentation
    including implementation guidance

8
The International LRFFT Standard
9
FINAL STANDARDS HIERARCHY
  • The Standard comprised of bullet criteria or
    Requirements
  • A compendium cross-referenced to the Standard
    through the Requirements consisting of
  • Best-Practices for each Requirement
  • LINKS to existing implementation guidance

IS THERE A NEED TO STRENGTHEN THE INTERNATIONAL
LRFFT STANDARD?
  • The Standard is 5 years old.
  • Perception and acceptance of Responsible
    Fisheries has moved on in 5 years.
  • Is The Standard Still Needed?
  • Is The Standard Still Relevant?
  • Are there lessons to be learnt from other
    programs to strengthen The Standard ?

12
Who Should Take The Lead?
  • NGOs
  • Consumers
  • Government
  • Demand Side Trade Associations
  • Supply Side Fishers Groups
  • ALL OF THE ABOVE

13
IMPLEMENTATION OPTIONS
  • Establish multi-stakeholder ROUNDTABLE to
    manage implementation of the LRFFT Standard
  • Maintain LRFFT Standard as a living document
    subject to revision and elaboration
  • Conduct industry gap analysis along Chain of
    Custody
  • Conduct outreach, capacity building and extension
    training programs

Lessons from Roundtables
  • Must have strong champions with stamina
  • Manage expectations of stakeholders on timelines
  • Balanced Representation, along value chain, is
    important
  • Guard the consensus process jealously
  • Be aware Race to the bottom
  • Technical challenges will be a constant but
    political will help.
  • Have a can-Do attitude
  • Have money for dedicated secretariat
  • MUST have a methodical, professional facilitators

17
Components of Roundtable by..
  • Engage governments to introduce incentives for
    such MSIs such as waivers of duties/taxes in
    lieu of certification,
  • Design a Monitoring and Evaluation Programme
    against the desired objectives of the standard.
    Design this from the very beginning
  • Ensure enough resources are allocated to a
    professionally run a Roundtable. It should have
    KPIs.

18
INSANITY is Expecting Different Results by doing
the same things repeatedly
19
CONCLUSION
  • OBJECTIVE
  • Develop a credible and robust Standard for the
    Live Reef Food Fish Trade by building broad
    consensus on best-practices needed to enhance
    industry sustainability
  • Extensive and open multi-stakeholder consultative
    process has guided Standards development over
    project duration
  • Initial lack of support for concept overcome by
    inclusive approach to the Standards development
  • Platform has been created for ongoing efforts to
    transform destructive aspects of the LRFFT
  • Integrated supporting documentation (i.e. CD
    Toolkit) will facilitate more extensive
    dissemination of the Standard
  • Dedicated website will enable wider stakeholder
    access to the Standard and ensure longevity

IMPLEMENTATION OPTIONS
  • Possible implementation frameworks
  • Industry member self-declaration (First-party
    certification)
  • Maintains status quo - no improvement in current
    practices
  • Seen as greenwash and has no credibility
  • Trade association compliance (Second-party
    certification)
  • Very difficult and expensive to run a credible
    program
  • Often becomes a lowest common denominator rather
    than best practice program
  • Seen as an exclusive club for members only
  • Independent accreditation (Third-party
    certification)
  • Highly credible as transparent, independent and
    includes third party verification
  • Can be expensive and difficult to implement in
    the artisanal sector without specialist capacity
    building for certification
