Officials from the Local Government – MIA and the Coastal Fisheries – MFMRD had returned from Abemama one of the pilot island under LDCF-I project after a formal handing over of the boat to the island council on the 5th December 2019.
The purpose of this aid is to assist the project in protecting and conserving of the marine resources such as in the enforcement of bonefish bylaws, protecting of the MPAs, cultivating of giant clams and sandfish, ark shell survey and other project activities.
The Mayor, the Clerk and the councilors, and some government officials were attending this event. The mayor gave his words of thanks to the LDCF-I project for providing the boat to their island council. He also said that, the boat will aid them in enhancing the enforcement of the bylaws or regulation for the marine resources and to boost the activity of LDCF-I project.
The Assistant Secretary from the MIA in his words challenged the island councils to use and keep the boat well as it is another asset that is very expensive. The Deputy Director from the Coastal Fisheries Division gave his remarks to and stressed to the island council that this boat is very crucial for the monitoring of the marine resources.
After the speeches, cutting of the cake was carried out by these 3 parties, the Mayor, The Assistant Secretary and the Deputy Director from Coastal Fisheries Division. This is to show their gratitude and collaboration to use wisely and keep it properly.
The last important part of this event was the counter sign between these 3 parties on the agreement to notify their roles and responsibilities in looking after this island council asset.
The trip was supported by the Kiribati LDCF I Project, funded by the Global Environment Facility and implemented under the Environment and Conservation Division through the support of the United Nations Development Programme.
