The need for dynamic data was a key part of a presentation delivered by Martin Purves, IPNLF Managing Director, at a recent meeting discussing Indonesian fisheries initiatives and progress with key funders.

IPNLF’s Martin Purves addresses regional fisheries management issues, including the role of RFMOs in tuna fisheries.

Held on 8 and 9 October in Bali, the Indonesia Marine Funders Collaboration (IMFC) Grantee Conference is a biennial event that brings together major donors in the marine space, including the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation, Margaret A Cargill Philanthropies and USAID, as well as many of the region’s grantees. In this setting, they freely discuss the status of current initiatives and share stories and experiences from their various projects, particularly in Indonesia.
