Workshop 4: Integrating Technology Systems
Time & Location
About The Event
The goal of this workshop is to have to multi-stakeholder dialogue to:
- Share tools and lessons learned for designing and implementing a Catch Documentation and Traceability (CDT) system, based on actual field implementation in Indonesia and Philippines
- Share current challenges and barriers to having a comprehensive and integrated CDT
- Identify actions and/or technologies which can overcome challenges
- Identify next steps for practitioners who wish to design and implement a comprehensive and integrated CDT in their supply chain
This workshop will engage various stakeholders (e.g. technology companies, seafood companies, industry associations, NGOs, and governments), who are at different stages of designing and implementing a comprehensive CDT system, and facilitate the exchange of ideas and practices to help them identify their next steps in order to move forward their actual CDT implementation.
The workshop will begin with resource person(s) providing an overview of CDT technologies/tools that have been implemented in Bitung, Indonesia and General Santos, Philippines, in both small & commercial scale supply chains. The resource person(s) will also go through a case study on benefits of CDT, lessons learned during implementation, and current/remaining challenges when implementing a comprehensive CDT system.
Following the overview, participants will break out into groups based on challenges they would like to work on (e.g. costs, financial incentives, interoperability).
During the first (40-min) exercise, each group will identify actions, technologies, and/or innovative finance tools which can help overcome the challenge their group is working on. Each group will report back their discussion.
During the second (10-min) exercise, each participant will be asked to identify their next steps in to move forward their own CDT implementation in their organization. Participants will share within their group, and a group representative will share to the rest of the audience.
