Support to design of the MSC's Bench Mark Tracking Tool Regional

Marine Stewardship Council - Project Dates:
January 2014 - December 2014

Description of Project:
Poseidon provided input into the MSC's benchmark tracking tool, combining its extensive experience in programme planning with experience from MSC assessments and Fisheries Improvement Plans.

Partial dissemination of the design work involved discussion at a wider forum of experts at a meeting held in Bali, April 2014. The work focuses on improving design and monitoring tools linked to delivery of MSC outcomes. In this context it is critical to apply appropriate and robust design frameworks, and to distance these projects from alleged 'green washing' activities being undertaken in some FIPs.

Poseidon is now managing 5 fisheries improvement plans in tunas, shrimp and blue swimming crab in Indonesia, Vietnam and the Solomon Islands.
