At Our Ocean Conference, Global Fishing Watch welcomes international partnerships to enhance ocean management

Key collaborations will bolster fisheries governance through greater transparency, data-sharing and policy reform

ATHENS, Greece, April 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Fishing Watch, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing ocean governance through transparency of human activity at sea, has announced three pioneering collaborations with Greece, Panama and the West African Sub-Regional Fisheries Commission (SRFC) in a bid to harness technology and data-driven solutions for enhanced transparency, improved fisheries management and greater ocean sustainability.

The partnerships, unveiled at the 9th Our Ocean Conference held in Athens, Greece, will leverage open data to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, promote sustainable fisheries management and enable marine protection through deepened engagement with governmental bodies spanning three continents. In addition, they will provide Global Fishing Watch the opportunity to highlight transparency as a critical marine management tool and advance policy reforms regarding the adoption of vessel tracking methods like automatic identification systems (AIS) and vessel monitoring systems (VMS), as well as regional data sharing practices.

Today’s announcements mark a milestone in our collaborative efforts to mobilize open data and technology in the fight against illegal fishing and toward improved global fisheries management,” said Tony Long, chief executive officer of Global Fishing Watch. “More importantly, our expanding network of partnerships shows that governments and multilateral institutions are increasingly recognizing the role Global Fishing Watch can play in achieving better and more transparent ocean governance.”

Collaborative partnerships, political will and open data can drive tangible impact and help deliver lasting results for a sustainable ocean future for all,” Mr. Long added. 

Leveraging Technology for Ocean Action

Presented at an official conference side event co-hosted by Greece, the Athanasios C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation and Global Fishing Watch, the partnership with Greece commits authorities to utilizing Global Fishing Watch’s platform, which provides visualizations and analysis of fishing activity, for critical support in bolstering the country’s marine protection efforts.

Greece commits to establishing a scientific monitoring and surveillance system for all its marine protected areas that will be supported with advanced monitoring techniques and digital tools, such as remote sensing and automatic communication with sea vessels,” Dr. Petros Varelidis, Secretary-General for Natural Environment and Waters of the Hellenic Ministry of Environment and Energy, confirmed. “The support of Global Fishing Watch and the Athanasios C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation will enable us to monitor fishing activity in near real-time.”

A ‘significant step forward’ against IUU fishing

The Our Ocean Conference also welcomed a new partnership between Global Fishing Watch and the seven West African SRFC Member States comprising Cabo Verde, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea- Bissau, Mauritania, Senegal and Sierra Leone. Through the new three-year agreement with SRFC, Global Fishing Watch will support Member States with analysis and generated insights to inform targeted monitoring, control and surveillance (MCS) actions, bolstering countries’ abilities to manage activity in their waters and safeguard livelihoods and regional economic and environmental ecosystems.

The 5,500 kilometer coastline of West Africa is home to some of the most diverse fisheries in the world and maritime activity plays a key role across the region. Indeed, fisheries and aquaculture directly contribute US$24 billion to the African economy, with the demand for fish expected to increase by 30 percent by 2030. Inadequate monitoring and enforcement, however, have led to rampant IUU fishing, with nearly 40 percent of fish caught illegally, resulting in substantial economic losses and environmental degradation.

The collaboration with Global Fishing Watch represents a significant step forward in the fight against illegal fishing in West Africa,” said Dr. Khallahi Brahim, Permanent Secretary of the Sub-Regional Fisheries Commission. “By joining forces, Global Fishing Watch and the SRFC can help transform fisheries governance, protect marine resources and secure the livelihoods of millions of people dependent on the fishing industry.”

The new partnership will work to ensure that SRFC Member States are fully equipped for better cooperation, monitoring and compliance, and also help establish cross-cutting initiatives with key stakeholders in ocean governance. The collaboration will pave the way for policy reforms and seek to establish AIS usage and data sharing as central pillars of SRFC Member States’ governance practices. It will also support government agencies in developing and retaining capacity to harness data and technology to strengthen management, including MCS, enforcement and marine protection.

Charting a new era of ocean governance

Global Fishing Watch’s activity on the margins of the Our Ocean Conference also saw the renewal of an ongoing collaboration with the Government of Panama, first launched in 2019, aimed at building an improved, collaborative framework for data-sharing and policy development.

The updated agreement reflects a deepened relationship between the two parties and a growing commitment to fisheries transparency. Supplementing the VMS data of its vast international fleet, which has been visible on the Global Fishing Watch map since October 2019, Panama will now share vessel data from its list of international licenses, including fishing licenses, areas of operation and information related to fishing support vessels. Over the next five years, Global Fishing Watch will also provide technical and data-driven assessments for the Aquatic Resources Authority of Panama to help inform national policies and regulations related to fisheries management.

We are pleased to announce the renewal of the memorandum of understanding with Global Fishing Watch in our tireless fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing,” said Hamed Tuñón, General Administrator, Aquatic Resources Authority of Panama. “Our strengthened alliance reflects the continued commitment of both parties to protecting our oceans and preserving their biodiversity. Together, we will continue to use innovative technology and collaborative strategies to ensure the sustainability of our valuable marine resources.”

Now, more than ever, the global community must rally behind landmark initiatives to protect our ocean, combat harmful practices, and achieve ambitious conservation targets such as safeguarding at least 30 percent of the ocean by 2030,” Mr. Long concluded.Achieving these critical commitments will be virtually impossible without Global Fishing Watch’s innovative ocean monitoring technology and expertise.”

En unissant nos forces pour créer IXOPAY dans le giron du groupe TokenEx, nous nous plaçons dans une position unique pour aider les commerçants à développer une stratégie de paiement permettant d’optimiser le recours à plusieurs processeurs de paiement et d’améliorer à la fois leur chiffre d’affaires brut et leur résultat net. »

La fusion entre TokenEx et IXOPAY marque une étape cruciale pour le secteur des paiements, à l’heure de sa transition vers une approche multi-processeurs permettant de donner vie à une plateforme de paiement intégrale et unique qui comprend :

  • La tokénisation omnicanale — Universal Tokens permet aux commerçants d’utiliser un seul token de paiement pour les transactions en boutique et en ligne, et pour tous les processeurs de paiement, ce qui élimine le stockage des données de paiement au sein de plusieurs systèmes, réduit la complexité du système et permet d’harmoniser les données client.
  • La synchronisation des paiements — Cette plateforme des paiements très évolutive pour les commerçants repose sur des fonctions intelligentes d’acheminement, de gestion de pointe des risques en cascade, mais aussi sur des ajustements et des règlements centralisés, ainsi que sur une intégration basée sur des plugins comportant plus de 200 acquéreurs, d’autres méthodes de paiement et des fournisseurs de services de paiement.
  • La gestion du cycle de vie des cartes — Un ensemble complet de fonctionnalités permet de gérer la totalité du cycle de vie des transactions à grande échelle, y compris la mise à jour des cartes expirées, l’exploitation de l’efficacité des tokens réseau, l’acheminement rationalisé grâce à la vérification des numéros d’identification bancaire (ou « BIN » pour Bank Identification Number) et l’authentification des transactions avec le système 3D Secure.

« Cette fusion avec TokenEx nous permet de rassembler non seulement nos capacités uniques pour devenir la plateforme de paiement la plus complète pour les commerçants à travers le monde, et de nous reposer sur l’expertise de l’équipe de TokenEx pour fournir un service de grand standing à nos clients, principalement européens, sur le marché américain, » observe René Siegl, fondateur et président exécutif d’IXOPAY. Et de poursuivre : « Pour les commerçants qui apprécient l’avantage concurrentiel lié au traitement des paiements de manière stratégique, IXOPAY, une société du groupe TokenEx, prendra à terme la forme d’une plateforme complète d’optimisation des paiements omnicanale avec le nec plus ultra de la tokénisation et un acheminement intelligent des transactions. Elle confèrera aux commerçants un contrôle sans précédent sur leur chiffre d’affaires, et leur donnera l’avantage concurrentiel nécessaire pour prospérer dans le secteur du commerce international. » René Siegl, fondateur et Nathalie Siegl, PDG continueront tous deux de travailler chez IXOPAY, une société du groupe TokenEx en qualité de dirigeants.

Ministry to partner NIPSS in harnessing digital economy for youth employment


The Minister of State for Youth Development, Mr Ayodele Olawande, says the Federal Government is making efforts to harness the potential of digital economy in empowering the youths.

Olawande communicated this on Tuesday in Abuja when the Senior Executive Course (SEC) 46, 2024, of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) Kuru, Jos, visited the ministry on a study tour.

The minister said that synergy with NIPSS would go a long way in capacity building for young people in digital economy.

According to him, with more than 50 per cent of its population below the age of 30, Nigeria has a significant demographic advantage in the digital age.

Olawande said that the year’s theme was ‘Digital Economy, Youth Empowerment, and Sustainable Job Creation in Nigeria: Issues, Challenges, and Opportunities.”

According to him, Nigerian youths are tech-savvy, innovative and eager to contribute to the country’s economic growth.

‘However, they face numerous challenges, including limited access to qual
ity education, skills training, and job opportunities.

‘The digital economy offers a unique opportunity for Nigeria to leapfrog traditional development challenges.”

The minister said that with the rise of e-commerce, digital payments, and remote work, the youth could access global markets, skills training, and job opportunities like never before.

He said that the country must address the issues and challenges hindering the growth of the digital economy in Nigeria.

‘These include limited digital literacy and skills training, inadequate infrastructure, including internet penetration and electricity supply.

‘High cost of data and limited access to funding; cybersecurity threats and data privacy concerns; limited government support and regulatory frameworks.”

Olawande said that in order to overcome the challenges, the ministry had implemented various initiatives, such as digital skills training programmess for youth; focusing on areas like software development and, data analytics.

He also listed digital
marketing especially in the NYSC-Galaxy Back Bone partnership to improve infrastructure including internet connectivity and alternative electricity supply.

The minister said that other things were funding opportunities, such as grants, loans, and venture capital, to support startups and small businesses with the launching of the National Youth Investment Fund.

‘We recognise that sustainable job creation is critical to Nigeria’s economic growth and stability.

‘Our goal is to create an ecosystem that supports innovation, entrepreneurship, and employment opportunities for our youth.”

According to him, the ministry seeks collaboration in areas like policy development, providing insights and recommendations for policy development in areas related to the digital economy, youth empowerment and sustainable job creation.

He requested for assistance in the development of strategic plans for agencies, private sector organisations, and civil society groups working in those areas.

‘Capacity building-offering traini
ng and capacity building programmes for the youth to enhance their skills and knowledge in the digital economy and related fields.

‘Research and analysis-conducting research and analysis on various aspects of the digital economy, youth empowerment and sustainable job creation; providing data-driven insights to inform decision-making, among others.

‘As we move forward, it is essential to prioritise digital literacy, innovation, and entrepreneurship, while addressing the issues of infrastructure, funding, and regulatory frameworks.

‘By doing so, we can unlock the potential of the digital economy to create sustainable jobs and empower our youth to drive Nigeria’s economic growth and prosperity,’ Olawande said.

Speaking earlier, the leader of NIPSS delegation, Ms Nima Mann, said that they were in the ministry to research, proffer solutions, recommendations and strategies to help government chart its course for the year.

‘We are in the ministry to listen to what you are doing to help the youth; how you are do
ing it; strategic plans and way forward as well as how we can use the digital economy to chart the goal for sustainable job creation,’ she said.

Namport secures deal to have cruise liners stay longer in Namibia

The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) has secured a deal with several cruise liners to have passengers stay longer in the country once they have docked at the two ports of Walvis Bay and Lderitz.

Namport’s Executive for Commercial Services Elias Mwenyo during a tourism stakeholder engagement on safety and operation of the sector on Tuesday, said six passenger ships will be overnighting at the Port of Walvis Bay, come the new season commencing in October.

Previously, the vessels would only spend a day before leaving the port for the next destination.

According to Mwenyo, this will ensure that passengers spend more time in the towns as well as neighbouring towns, as a result injecting more into the country’s economy.

‘We are expecting 44 more cruise liners, which is an indication that we are not just a stopover but are moving in the direction of becoming a destination for these tourists. We have heard the cries of the tour operators and from the port’s side, we have directly been engaging with passenger v
essel owners and informed them that stopovers are not really what we want but would like for tourists to stay longer and maybe even travel to other towns for activities,’ Mwenyo expressed.

He urged the Namibians to also integrate the culture of cruise liner tourism, try to get onto the vessels and experience what happens on the cruises and not just be the receivers every time.

Namport together with the tourism agencies in the town, he said will create opportunities for Namibians to have access to the cruise ships so that they can experience them.

‘Through the engagements with cruise line owners, we have also discussed job creation opportunities and we are therefore working very hard to get our young people to acquire employment on these vessels, as it is very rare to find Namibians working on these kinds of liners.’

Erongo Regional Tourism Forum member Kenneth Kapitako added that the cruise industry is important in the quieter tourism sector and has the potential to benefit the informal sector in the Eron
go Region and the country at large.

Kapitako noted that the forum has engaged and is currently engaging the relevant stakeholders in ensuring that Erongo and the rest of the country become a destination of choice for travellers.

Make staff housing your project – FCT workers beg Wike


Workers of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), under the Joint Unions Action Committee (JUAC), have appealed to the FCT Minister, Mr Nyesom Wike, to make staff housing one of his projects.

The workers made the appeal at the commencement of the JUAC Week in Abuja on Wednesday, with the theme, ‘FCT Civil Service Commission – A New Dawn’.

JUAC President, Mrs Rifkatu Iortyer pointed out that Abuja was one of the cities with the highest rent in the country.

Iortyer added that the development had forced many workers to stay in outskirt of the city where rent was affordable.

She said that to address the challenge, JUAC had secured a land eight years ago, for staff housing estate.

She, however, said that the union was financially incapacitated to allocate the land to the workers, in spite of paying compensation and other commitments.

She explained that the union had equally made some moves for additional housing for the workers but unsuccessful.

‘We appealed to the minister to consider our plea considering t
hat housing is key to our staff. If we cannot do it as a union, let the housing issue be one of our minister’s projects.

‘He should help us to have an affordable housing estate for our staff. We know him as ‘Mr Project’, as evident with the ongoing projects across the territory,’ she said.

The president also appealed to the minister to look into the transportation scheme for workers, noting that most of the staff buses were grounded since COVID-19 lockdown.

She commended the minister for being labour-friendly and a welfarist to workers, adding that the biggest gift to the FCT workers was the FCT Civil Service Commission (CSC).

‘FCT staffs can now grow to the peak of their career. We cannot thank him enough for making this a reality,’ she said.

Also, the FCT Head of Service, Dr Udo Atang, described Wike as a labour-friendly minister, stressing that he has made staff welfare his priority.

‘The minister had said that the establishment of FCT CSC is an integral part of President Bola Tinubu’s ‘Renewed Hope’
agenda.

‘So, our hopes have been renewed and reestablished. We are all potential permanent secretaries and potential heads of service,’Atang said.

Responding, Wike, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Mr Chidi Amadi, ascribed the successes so far recorded in FCT to the resourcefulness of the workers.

‘Today, we are celebrating a new beginning; a new beginning that gives hope.

‘A new beginning that gives motivation; a new beginning that gives us the assurance that whatever commitment and sacrifice we put in the service, there is the likelihood that it will be rewarded,’ he said.

The minister lauded the collaborative efforts of the workers for a common goal, and advised the leadership of the JUAC to build a culture of negotiation and not confrontation.

‘Collaboration should be the watch word. As long as we continue to have this seamless relationship, I will ensure that no worker will be left behind,’ he said.
