*Tetra Tech International seeks applications for multiple positions on the
newly awarded USAID SEA – project*

*Project overview*

The Indonesia Sustainable Ecosystems Advanced (SEA) Project is a five-year
contract that supports the Government of Indonesia to conserve biological
diversity and improve the governance of marine resources at local,
district, provincial and national levels. By using an ecosystem-based
approach to management and engaging key stakeholders, the SEA Project will
1) enhance conservation and sustainable use of marine resources by
reforming fisheries management and promoting marine protected areas to
enhance fisheries productivity, food and nutrition security, and
sustainable livelihoods within the target area; and 2) strengthen the
leadership role and capacity of the Ministry of Marine Affairs and
Fisheries and local governments to promote conservation and sustainable
fishing. The SEA Project is implemented by Tetra Tech and a consortium of
partners that includes Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Coral Triangle
Center (CTC) and WWF-Indonesia (WWF). The SEA Project will run from March
2016 through March 2021.

The SEA Project is predicated on an ecosystem approach to fisheries and
marine resources management, which implies that it will integrate across
sectors and assist in the development of plans and implementation actions
that address biophysical, governance and socio-economic concerns. To
accomplish this vision of ecosystem approach and integration, it will need
to formulate a consistent level of baseline information for project areas
so that actions and longer-term plans will truly address the underlying
issues and threats to the geographic areas of focus. Such an approach will
also provide a model for other areas in Indonesia and a systematic means of
scaling up coastal and marine resource management by local districts,
provinces and the national government.

The SEA Project will implement activities in the three provinces —West
Papua, North Maluku, and Maluku Provinces—that lie within Indonesia’s
Fishery Management Zone WWP-715. This zone was chosen to be the site of the
SEA Project because of the area’s high marine biodiversity, status as a
national priority area for fisheries, the presence of small island
provinces/districts, high rates of extreme poverty and high vulnerability
to climate change. The project will also operate at a national scale to
support specific activities of the Ministry of Marine Affaires and Fisheries
