May 22, 2017
01

The first APEC Marine Sustainable Development Report (AMSD) developed by the APEC Marine Sustainable Development Centre received endorsement in 2014. The AMSD is the first comprehensive report in APEC to research the status and progresses of marine sustainable development of the Asia-Pacific region. Download the AMSD here

At the 2016 APEC Ministerial Meeting in Peru it was proposed to update the AMSD to promote regional marine sustainable development as a key APEC contribution to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The proposed theme of report 2 is ‘APEC Sustainable Development Report: Sustainable Development Goals in APEC’.

The report objectives are to:

1. reflect trends and endeavors of APEC and its member economies in achieving SDGs, especially SDG 14 and other goals and objectives relevant to ocean and coasts;

2. map and take stock of OFWG’s projects and activities relevant to marine sustainable development;

3. serve as a platform to take APEC’s active role in facilitating the implementation of 2030 agenda in Asia-Pacific region.

The APEC Marine Sustainable Development Centre is currently bringing together a core group of experts to support the development of the general report (which will be supplemented by a collection of economic reports) and is calling for nominations from APRU member experts with the following backgrounds:

1. marine management and policy especially marine pollution control
2. marine ecosystem conversation and resource management
3. ocean and climate change and sustainable fisheries management

Roles and Responsibilities of the core expert group

a) develop the general report by setting outline, collecting useful data and information, drafting and reviewing;
b) have sufficient communication during the formulation process of the report through workshops, informal meetings, tele-meetings and emails;
c) work in collaboration with APEC Marine Sustainable Development Centre to finalize and publish the final report;
d) design the questionnaire to collect relevant information from member economies for the purpose of drafting AMSD Report 2.
e) work on other issues concerning the developing and updating of the report;

A 2-day workshop is expected to be convened in Xiamen sometime between July and September 2017 for shaping the theme, chapter structure and outlines of the report. Date of the workshop is to be determined after the establishment of core expert group. Some funding maybe available to support academic expert participation. TBC in due course.

See the information sheet for more detail about background, proposed work plan, methodologies and time frame of overall project.

Nomination form for the core expert group will need to be submitted to [email protected] via emailed by end of Friday, May 26, 2017.

APRU will forward suitable nominations to the APEC project team who will contact selected experts by the middle of June 2017.
