Join Australia Awards’ Online Dialogue “Mitigating Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Fishery Supply Chain in Maluku” on Tuesday, 22 June 2021 at 10:00 – 12:30 WIT (or 08:00 – 10:30 Jakarta time).
COVID-19 presents an unprecedented challenge to public health and poses a domino effect to many other sectors, including to marine and fisheries. With the implementation of lockdown measures that limit the movement of goods and people, supply chains for maritime commodities have been put to test. Fishing activities in many coastal areas, such as in Maluku, have either stopped or been significantly reduced due to the low demand.
As one of the largest seafood producers in the world, Indonesia must address the challenges in the industry so that the pandemic effect to coastal communities can be contained. Join us to discuss this issue with experts from various professional backgrounds in this industry from the government, civil society organisations, private sector and university.
Speakers of the event:
This event will be hosted by Adjeng Hatalea, a journalist at TribunAmbon.com and alumna of English Language Training Assistance (ELTA) program. The discussion will be moderated by Irene Sahertian-Matakena, a consultant in the fisheries industry and alumna of the University of Tasmania. There will be opening remarks from the Australian Embassy in Indonesia and Provincial Government of Maluku.
This event will be conducted in Bahasa Indonesia, and you can watch it here on the Australia Awards in Indonesia’s YouTube channel.
