ATSEA Inception Workshop

The tropical and semi-enclosed Arafura and Timor Seas (ATS) are shared  by Australia, Indonesia, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea (PNG). The ATS  region is extremely rich in living and non-living marine resources,  including major fisheries and oil and gas reserves. The ATS region is  located at the intersection of the two major Large Marine Ecosystems  (LMEs), the Indonesian Seas to the north and northern Australian waters  to the south, and is also an integral part of the Coral Triangle zone  considered to have the highest marine biodiversity in the world. The ATS  region exhibits high productivity that sustains both small and large-scale fisheries that provide livelihoods for millions of people in  the region.

ATSEF Regional Secretariat supported by member countries, together with  the GEF and UNDP had developed of the Full-Sized Proposal (FSP) on the  Arafura and Timor Seas Ecosystem Action (ATSEA). Prior to the  implementation of the project, the secretariat in collaboration with the  Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Indonesia, especially the  Agency for Marine and Fisheries Research, and UNDP is holding an  Inception Workshop to officially start the Arafura and Timor Seas  Ecosystem Action (ATSEA).
