The Arafura and Timor Seas (ATS) is part of the North Australian Shelf large marine ecosystem (LME), which is a tropical sea lying between the Pacific and Indian Oceans and extending from the Timor Sea to the Torres Strait and including the Arafura Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria. The region is adjacent to the Coral Triangle , which hosts the world’s highest marine biodiversity and contains some of the most pristine and highly threatened coastal and marine ecosystems. At the regional scale, the ecosystems of the ATS play an important economic and ecological role in the littoral nations bordering the Arafura and Timor Sea: Indonesia, Timor-Leste, Australia, and Papua New Guinea.

The marine environment in the ATS region is in serious decline, primarily as a result of overharvesting and other direct and indirect impacts of anthropogenic stresses and global climatic changes. Fisheries in the ATS region represent an extremely complex productive, socioeconomic sector, with multiple actors, target species sought, and technology used. The main characteristics of depletion of shared ATS transboundary stocks by fishery were assessed as part of the ATS transboundary diagnostic analysis (TDA) in 2012. In addition to climate change, unsustainable harvesting, illegal unreported unregulated (IUU) fishing, and bycatch are having significant impacts on the populations of key marine species in the ATS region, particularly globally threatened coastal marine megafauna including migratory, rare, and threatened species of turtles, dugongs, seabirds/shorebirds, sea snakes, cetaceans, sharks and rays. Lastly, potential sources of marine pollution in the ATS region include marine debris, marine based pollution from oil and gas activities, as well as waste from fishing and shipping vessels.

This project will cover the five-priority transboundary environmental problems identified by the TDA: (i) unsustainable fisheries and decline and loss of living coastal and marine resources; (ii) modification, degradation and loss of coastal and marine habitats; (iii) marine and land-based pollution; (iv) the decline and loss of threatened and migratory species; and (v) impacts of climate change on the ATS

This project is building upon the foundational results realized in the first phase of the ATSEA program, which applied the tried and tested GEF International Waters focal area approach, starting with a participatory transboundary diagnostic analysis (TDA) and followed by development of a regional strategic action program (SAP) and national action programs (NAPs). This second phase of the ATSEA program, is designed to support the initial implementation of the ATS SAP, endorsed through Ministerial Declaration in 2014.

Scope of Work

The ATSEA-2 project needs to develop and implement a local, provincial, and national level communication and outreach strategy, as part of the effort to engage and involve local stakeholders in the implementation on the Arafura & Timor Seas National Action Plan, and to disseminate the results and achievement of the project to local, national, and international stakeholders.

Therefore, the consultant would be expected to develop outreach and awareness strategies for ATSEA-2, both at the NCU level as well as at the field level, as well as develop their action plan and facilitate its implementation.
