The Strategic Action Programme (SAP) is a comprehensive plan to address the major fisheries, environmental and socio-economic problems affecting the Bay of Bengal Large Marine Ecosystem (BOBLME). The SAP has been developed by the Bay of Bengal Large Marine Ecosystem Project in close collaboration with relevant stakeholders from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. It recognizes that many of the issues facing BOBLME are transboundary in nature and that improved regional collaboration and management holds the greatest promise of positive change. The document is based on the transboundary diagnostic analysis (TDA) which was endorsed in March 2012 by the eight BOBLME countries. The SAP currently exists as a draft version and should be finalized by late 2014. For more information please click here.
