CTI-CFF Countries

The CTI-CFF is an agreement among six nations, sometimes referred to as the "CT6." The countries are:

Indonesia

The Indonesia CTI-CFF National Plan of Action (NPOA) goals and activities are closely tied to the CTI-CFF Regional Plan of Action as well as the government’s medium and long-term strategies related to coral reef, fisheries and food security. The NPOA guides and streamlines Indonesia's effort on the ground to achieve conservation of coral reef for the sustainability of fisheries and food security and help ensure that local targets are consistent with regional goals.

Malaysia

The Malaysia CTI-CFF National Plan Action focuses on the development and implementation of innovative management approaches to overcome climate change risks and overexploitation of marine resources that could spur new sources of growth for our livelihood. It embodies 12 guiding principles representing Malaysia’s commitments in various treaties, policies and declaration commitments in international forums and contains 134 specific actions that will directly contribute to achievement of five goals of the CTI-CFF Regional Plan of Action.

Papua New Guinea

The PNG Marine Program on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security from 2010-2015 contains the PNG CTI-CFF National Plan of Action and incorporates the five goals of the CTI-CFF Regional Plan of Action. The program integrates priority actions from all responsible government agencies in an integrated manner to ensure effective management of the country’s marine habitats and resources to sustain its coastal population.

Philippines

The Philippine CTI-CFF National Plan of Action mirrors the goals and targets for the CTI-CFF Regional Plan of Action and has six cross cutting themes that will ensure that its implementation is consistent with the integrated coastal management framework which is already being applied in the country.  These themes include research requirements, enabling policy, planning based on best practices and lessons learned, capacity building, enforcement of environmental laws and information and education campaigns.

Solomon Islands

The Solomon Islands CTI-CFF National Plan of Action (NPOA) is focused on adopting a people-centered approach to integrated resource management where communities will be the primary drivers as well as beneficiaries of sustainable resource management.  It is supported by cross cutting strategies such as development of policy legislation and institutional partnerships, data management and coordination for decision making, and capacity building.  The NPOA aims to ensure that 25% of Solomon Islands coastal, watershed and inshore areas are under 40% improved management through community based resource management and integrated coastal management approaches by 2015.

Timor-Leste

The Timor-Leste CTI-CFF National Plan of Action (NPOA) has parallel goals and targets to the CTI-CFF Regional Plan of Action and is aligned with the government’s existing and proposed policies, financial systems, development partner programs and most importantly with Millennium Development Goals and Poverty Alleviation Schemes and Plans.  The NPOA recognizes and capitalizes on the cultural and experiential diversity found in Timor-Leste and is considered a living and evolving document that will adapt to the continuous changes in Timor-Leste’s political and social backdrop.
