BACKGROUND

Nauru is a small island state and one of the smallest independent nations in the world. It is located 41 km south of the equator at 0o32’02.5 South and 166o55’57.8 East which is in the dry belt of the equatorial oceanic zone. The one island nation is roughly 6 km by 4 km in length and width respectively covering a land area of 21 km2 and with an estimated population of 10,084 in 2011. The country has a coastline of 30 km and claims an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 309,888km2. The island is divided into 14 different districts of varying sizes and number of inhabitants which are all situated along the coast except for 1 and with a population density of over 1,500 persons per km2. Surrounding the island is a fringing coral reef ranging from 120m to 300m wide, which drops away sharply on the seaward edge to a depth of 4,000m. The central plateau which lies between 20-45 meters above sea level is comprised of a matrix of coral-limestone pinnacles and limestone outcrops between which extensive deposits of high grade phosphate rock are found..

The outcome of this work is expected to strengthen NFMRA ability to work with communities to effectively manage the coastal fisheries and marine resources sustainably.

Background
Nauru is a small island state and one of the smallest independent nations in the world. It is located 41 km south of the equator at 0o32’02.5 South and 166o55’57.8 East which is in the dry belt of the equatorial oceanic zone. The one island nation is roughly 6 km by 4 km in length and width respectively covering a land area of 21 km2 and with an estimated population of 10,084 in 2011. The country has a coastline of 30 km and claims an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 309,888km2. The island is divided into 14 different districts of varying sizes and number of inhabitants which are all situated along the coast except for 1 and with a population density of over 1,500 persons per km2. Surrounding the island is a fringing coral reef ranging from 120m to 300m wide, which drops away sharply on the seaward edge to a depth of 4,000m. The central plateau which lies between 20-45 meters above sea level is comprised of a matrix of coral-limestone pinnacles and limestone outcrops between which extensive deposits of high grade phosphate rock are found.

 

Economic data for Nauru is not current but it is estimated that in 2011, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita was US$6,954 and GDP growth was 14% per annum. The mining industry since it started have dominated contribution to the GDP. Contribution from the Fisheries Sector have always been considered negligible and was always pooled together with other services even though the revenue from foreign fishing licenses has increased quite significantly over the last 5 years.

 

The fisheries in Nauru consists of 2 main sectors. The Oceanic Fishery which consists of the pelagic tuna resources and foreign fishing activities in the 200 mile EEZ, allowed through license agreements and which is strictly managed under regional arrangements through the Party to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) and the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) under the FSM Arrangement and the Palau Agreement. The Coastal Fishery Sector on the other hand consists of the inshore tuna fishery, the reef fishery including the deep bottom fishery and coastal marine resources which are within the territorial waters (high water mark to 12 nautical miles offshore). The latter sector provides the mainstay for food security and subsistence and livelihoods.

 

The Nauru Ridge to Reef (R2R) GEF Project has been designed to develop, establish and implement a government and community partnership approach to increase knowledge for better management of natural resources and ecosystem services for the entire Island of Nauru (South Pacific) through innovative integrated land, water, biodiversity, coastal and marine management approaches thereby protecting and increasing livelihoods opportunities, food security, and enhancing climate resilience. These goals will be achieved by building Nauru’s capacity to implement a comprehensive cross sectorial regime for sustainable land, freshwater water, solid waste, coastal and marine area management and ensuring the initiatives are mainstreamed and established into all levels of decision making including government policy, laws and regulations and community plans.

 

The coastal fisheries and marine resources of Nauru are critically important for subsistence and local livelihood activities for the people of Nauru. Over many hundreds of years these resources have been exploited on an open tenure system which allows anyone to fish anywhere in the inshore waters and which has led to heavy exploitation. The management of these resources is subsequently the responsibility of the national government although historically and even currently, communities tend to claim some authority over adjacent community marine and coastal areas.

 

The increasing high levels of marine resources exploitation including fishing pressure and use of unsustainable fishing practices have directly decreased resource stocks and Nauru’s inshore fisheries food security. These threats are compounded by rapid population growth which is increasing the demand for protein sources from the marine ecosystem and the impacts of climate change which is weakening the resilience of the marine ecosystem to such pressures.

 

To be able to manage these threats and ensure the sustainability of the fisheries and marine resources, a strong and effective governance system is required that will assist the government and the communities in managing these resources in a sustainable manner. Currently this is lacking. The current Fisheries Act which provides the main legal platform for managing fisheries and marine resources have mainly been focused on the management of the offshore tuna resources and foreign fishing arrangements leaving the management of the inshore (within 12 nautical miles) and coastal fisheries and marine resources weak and inadequate.

 

In recognition of this weakness and need, the Nauru R2R project consistent with the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) 5 Biodiversity Strategy Objective 2 i.e. Mainstream Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use into Production Landscapes, Seascapes and Sectors intends to increase and expand sustainably managed landscapes and seascapes that integrate biodiversity conservation while maintaining economic livelihoods that are closely tied to maintenance of healthy ecosystems. More specifically this is to be implemented under the following project outcomes:

 

Component 1: Conservation of Marine Biodiversity; Outcome1.1: Improved management effectiveness of LMMAs and

Component 3: Governance and Institutions; Outcome 3.1: Biodiversity conservation and SLM mainstreamed in policy and regulatory frameworks.

 

Scope of work/Expected Output

The Fisheries Legal Specialist through this work will be expected to conduct the following for each of the outputs:

 

Output 1.1.1

a) Conduct a review of the current Fisheries Act with a view of strengthening the legal framework for managing coastal fisheries and marine resources as well as aquaculture;

b) Develop appropriate legislation and a marine regulatory framework that will support community based management of coastal areas and elicit District Community feedback into the process through a consultative process;

c) Review and formulate legal processes for enabling community based management arrangements;

d) Clearly delineate responsibilities in the implementation of coastal and aquaculture components of the Fisheries Act.

Output 1.1.2

e) Develop an effective supporting legal framework and arrangements that will allow the District Communities to establish and operate LMMAs;

f) Provide a draft of appropriate initial community by-laws to support community management and regulative efforts for their LMMAs and possible external impacts;

g) Develop guidelines for the processes for reviewing the community by-laws and to get them en-acted;

Output 3.1.1

h) Ensure that the revised Fisheries Act is aligned accordingly with national policies and other national legislations;

i) Ensure that the revised Fisheries Act and Regulations are coherent and do not compromise existing International Fisheries obligations and requirements;

j) Work closely with the Justice Department to ensure that the revision of the Fisheries Act follows the required processes and procedures of the Nauru Government;

k) Present a final draft of a revised Fisheries Act that includes a stronger legal framework for the development and management of coastal fisheries and aquaculture to NFMRA and the Justice Department, ready for submission to Government for their review and endorsement;

Output 3.1.2

l) Work with a local counterpart to develop local capacity, understanding and awareness of the legal processes and requirements in the legal issues relating to the management of coastal fisheries and marine resources and aquaculture;

m) Develop guidelines for a review and evaluation process for the Fisheries Act.

 

In achieving the outcome of this work, the Fisheries Legal Specialist will be expected to work closely with NFMRA and other relevant stakeholders to review and update the existing Fisheries legislation and identify the weaknesses threatening successful fisheries management and development especially with the integration and participation of communities into the coastal fisheries management process. It must also be stressed that the review and update should not only consider the fisheries sector but should take a more holistic approach and consider other sectors that have a direct or indirect impact on fisheries (e.g., the environment, hygiene and sanitation, pollution, investment codes, etc.).

 

The consultancy should include travel to country to enable sufficient national consultations on proposed legal amendments. The in-country travel will include collecting, reviewing and analyzing relevant documents dealing with the coastal fisheries and aquaculture sectors and consulting with NFMRA as well as other stakeholders (other local administrations and fishing communities). Consultative workshops is encouraged and must be conducted in a participatory fashion following international best practices and according to Nauru’s requirements in both the legal development process and the scope and conte
