Triple Impact FIPs: Part I

April 1, 2021

The sustainable seafood movement has driven improvement of upwards of 30% of global seafood production. Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) – multi-stakeholder interventions that leverage market forces – have been key to this achievement. Unfortunately, despite the successes achieved to date, accumulating research identifies several limitations to the conventional FIP model. These include: a tendency to stall and backslide, lack of suitability for developing world and small-scale fisheries, uneven distribution of the costs and benefits of improvement throughout supply chains, and failure to accommodate social performance. This results in significant risk for stakeholders, and the sustainable seafood movement.

To address these limitations and to maximize the success of FIPs, Ocean Outcomes, SmartFish AC, Wilderness Markets and Conservation International’s Oceans program broadened the FIP model to include fisheries’ social and financial dimensions by developing a Triple Impact Fisheries Evaluation Framework. The Triple Impact Fisheries Evaluation Framework increases the viability and decreases the risk of fisheries improvement by evaluating, tracking and incentivizing improvement of fisheries’ social and financial performance along with their environmental performance.

In part one of this two-part series, those involved in the development and piloting of the Framework will provide a high level overview of the Framework and insights into improving social and economic fisheries sustainability, including case study examples from partners implementing the framework in Mexico and South Africa.

Speakers:
Dr. Hoyt Peckham, Wildlife Conservation Society
Dr. Jocelyn Drugan, Ocean Outcomes
Dr. Elena Finkbeiner, Conservation International; University of California, Santa Cruz, Assistant Adjunct Faculty
Jada Tullos Anderson, Ocean Outcomes
Kristin Sherwood, FishChoice

Triple Impact FIPs Part II

April 14, 2021

Join us for part-two of our Triple Impact FIPs webinar series to learn first-hand how the Triple Impact Fisheries Evaluation Framework increases the viability and decreases the risk of fisheries improvement by evaluating, tracking and incentivizing improvement of fisheries’ social and financial performance along with their environmental performance.
In this 90min session, partners implementing the framework in Costa Rica, Mexico and South Africa, will provide their personal insights into improving social and economic fisheries sustainability and participate in a panel discussion followed by facilitated small group discussions.

Speakers:
Mariah Boyle, Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions
Hoyt Peckham, Wildlife Conservation Society
Cecilia Blasco, Smartfish Rescate de Valor, AC
Serge Raemaekers, Chris Kastern, Greg Duggan, ABALOBI
Ana Gloria Guzmán, Conservation International Costa Rica

Seafood MAP: gathering the seafood sector to accelerate the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

May 5, 2021

To accelerate change towards sustainability, the seafood sector needs simple guidance to understand the more than 64 percent of global seafood production that is currently not covered by certifications, ratings, and fisheries and aquaculture improvement projects.

Seafood MAP is a digital platform that will bring together as many seafood actors as possible on a single, unique and transparent platform to enable opportunities and growth in the sector. Like the GSSI Global Benchmark Tool, Seafood MAP is based on internationally recognized guidelines including the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. The common language will enable seafood industry actors to share their sustainability goals and journeys. Seafood MAP will also map local and regional projects with sustainability objectives anywhere in the world.

In this webinar, learn how Seafood MAP:

• Puts on the map those fisheries and aquaculture operations currently not on the radar;
• Leverages the influence of the GSSI Global Partnership to drive continuous improvement where certified product is not available;
• And amplifies collaborations and current efforts towards more sustainable seafood for everyone and the implementation of the UN SDGs.

Presented by Eva Mudde, Development & Innovation Officer, Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI).

Alliance Workshop: Setting Priorities to Achieve Our 75% by 2030 Goal

May 6, 2021

The Alliance has set an ambitious goal that by 2030, at least 75% of global seafood production is environmentally sustainable or making verifiable improvement and safeguards are in place to ensure social responsibility. During this session, we will share a proposal to prioritize topics and species for improvement in order to make progress toward the 75% goal and solicit feedback and input from the community. We will mostly focus on the environmental component of the goal on this call, as we will have an entire session dedicated to defining the ‘social safeguard’ component of the goal soon.

Please join us to share your thoughts on this strategy seeking to connect markets and policy work and how we set priorities to achieve this goal, and share your organization’s work and initiatives that will help reach the 75% goal.

The session will be recorded and shared for folks not able to attend in real time and feedback can be provided following our time together as well.

Attendees will not be expected to join on video, though we do hope you’ll share your thoughts throughout the call via audio and Mentimeter. We will be sharing slides and conducting a demo of some tools on the call as well.

The Fisheries Improvement Fund

May 20, 2021

Please join Wilderness Markets and WWF-US to learn about a pioneering blue finance vehicle – the Fisheries Improvement Fund – that they are developing to support fishery improvement projects (FIPs) and help reverse the global trend of fisheries decline. In this 60-minute session, you will learn how the proposed Fund will combine funding from multiple sources to support economic, social and environmental outcomes in fisheries and provide FIPs with the funding they require from the outset.

Presenters:
Stephanie Bradley, WWF-US
Neel Inamdar, Wilderness Markets

Background:
Wild capture fisheries provide food security, livelihoods and economic benefits to hundreds of millions of people around the world, particularly in developing countries. Unfortunately, many of the world’s fisheries are overexploited and the health of the ecosystems on which they depend is in decline. We believe that fisheries are an inherently renewable resource if managed well and can provide more fish, more predictable and resilient incomes and deliver higher environmental benefits if we invest in their recovery and continued management. However, the lack of significant, long-term financing for FIPs represents a barrier to scaling current efforts. Whilst other challenges to fisheries improvement efforts exist, it is not possible to increase the pace and scale of change without addressing the question of how we pay for those changes. This is why Wilderness Markets and WWF-US are collaborating to establish an innovative financing mechanism – the Fisheries Improvement Fund.

Protecting Human Rights in Sustainable Seafood: FisheryProgress’ social policy

June 23, 2021

For years, members of the Conservation Alliance community have been discussing and exploring approaches for improving both the environmental sustainability and social responsibility of seafood supply chains.

On May 12, FisheryProgress released its new Human Rights and Social Responsibility Policy (https://fisheryprogress.org/social-responsibility/our-approach), which sets tiered requirements for FIPs reporting on the website to help FIPs improve their social performance and provide seafood buyers with information to make informed sourcing decisions. You can read more about the FisheryProgress policy here (https://fisheryprogress.org/social-responsibility/our-approach) and watch a recording of the launch webinar hosted by Diversified Communications here (https://divcom-events.webex.com/divcom-events/lsr.php?RCID=211a2efc9e88b6024e87b19d1230607c).

Please join the Conservation Alliance and FisheryProgress for a candid discussion of opportunities and challenges related to the implementation of the policy. The webinar will include a panel discussion featuring representatives from Meijer, CeDePesca, and Conservation International hosted by Sarah Hogan from the Packard Foundation, and breakout discussions so attendees can talk more in depth about opportunities related to the policy.
