  1. ROUNDTABLE 1: SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION FOR SUSTAINABLE FISHERIES & AQUACULTURE FOR FOOD SECURITY Venue: Taming Sari III Convenor / Discourse Leader: Dr Lida Pet-Soede Leader of the Coral Triangle Network Initiative, WWF • Discussants: • Dato’ Goh Cheng Liang • President, Marine Fish-Farmers Association of Malaysia & Group Executive Chairman, GST Group of Companies, Malaysia • Prof Dr Ridzwan Abdul Rahman • Team Leader, Strategic Environmental Assessment on Food Security, Sabah • Mr Patrick Caleo • Country Manager, Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Australia & New Zealand • Ms K. Sineenart Chuichulcherm • Asian Sourcing Manager, Mars Global Petcare, Thailand • Ms Margareth Meutia • Senior Officer, SEAFOOD SAVERS Secretariat, WWF-Indonesia

  2. REPORT: • Research and assessment on food security for the whole Coral Triangle is important. This will allow for investments and government enabling policies to address those food security aspects as they vary throughout the region. Furthermore, it could inform development and innovation in technology to improve food security where it matters most. In case of several external factors influencing seafood production, this knowledge will facilitate decisions between producing seafood for exports or for domestic purposes. • 2. Technology available to share information and connect producers – fishers and farmers with buyers and consumers such as what was described by NOKIA would truly improve the understanding and the profiling of those farmers and fishers who are responsibly producing seafood and it could provide information to producers about what the market is asking for. In addition, it would enhance the awareness of the Asian consumers either on environmental sustainability or social livelihood issues which could eventually lead to an increased demand for sustainable seafood even within this region. • 3. Innovative incentives and financial support for example from Blue Carbon mechanisms and platforms like Seafood Savers and MSC could upscale some of the early examples of sustainable and responsible initiatives in the Coral Triangle region throughout the broader sector and across the entire region. • 4. In Science, Technology and Innovation, there is a role for the government and private sectors to play The government can create enabling conditions to ensure livelihoods and food security, and the private sector can work on consolidating different supply chains so that even small producers (fishers and farmers) have benefit of market access and additional benefits of reducing waste and loss of product quality.

  3. ROUNDTABLE 2: RENEWABLE ENERGY, GREEN TRANSPORTATION & LOGISTICS Venue: Tun Sri Lanang I Convenor / Discourse Leader: Mr Ahmad Zairin Ismail Senior Vice President Energy, Manufacturing, Building & ICT Discussants: • Atty.

  4. To create a small team under one of the CTI Technical Working Groups with members from the CT6 countries and the private sector, with other partners that will consider, prioritize and promote actions towards: • CONDUCTING A TABLE TOP REVIEW of existing assessments and feasibility studies • Reducing the impacts of marine transportation, through such actions as: • having at least 2 CT countries to complete the ratification of the global Ballast Water Convention • urging organizations involved in offshore oil and gas as well as countries to use best practices • developing additional management mechanisms to address transit in the more sensitive marine areas and sea lanes of the Coral Triangle (hot spots) • Developing renewable energy and alternative energy options as one of the main sources of energy throughout the Coral Triangle, through such actions as: • sharing of technology and business cases to improve livelihoods and environmental management of businesses, which are already commercially viable • creating a model area to install some best renewable energy practices • Encourage CT6 states to strengthen national legislation and compliance, and where necessary to enact new laws, • that develop regulatory frameworks for renewable energy, its potential, risks, operations, and beneficiaries • that sustainably manage marine resources including renewable energies, marine habits within the EEZ
