Masyarakat dan Perikanan (MDPI) was established as an independent foundation to provide ongoing care for the conservation of the fisheries resources of Indonesia and the region. MDPI has been working to support the economic improvements of the fishing communities and supply chains. MDPI was awarded a grant by USAID Oceans in August 2017 for the “Initial Pilot Trialing of Catch Documentation and Traceability Systems for Small-scale Fisheries” where it leveraged its knowledge and capacity to support and advance the works of USAID Oceans on eCDT data management, testing, and implementation. Under the grant, MDPI engaged with local and national partners to develop, deploy, and begin piloting the eCDT system technologies Trafiz and TraceTales. The tools help capture and validate key data on products, including legality and movement throughout the supply chain, from the point of harvest to the end consumer. Data collected by these tools will be leveraged under the grant for enhanced fisheries management.
