Lembaga, Sabang, Pulau Aceh, Meulaboh, C - One of the first steps was to meet with Panglima Laot up and down the east and west coast of Aceh. These meetings facilitated by Panglima Laot Krueng Aceh were to conduct an assessment to identify specific needs and capacities within the local fishing communities. The goal of this assessment will be identify key stakeholders, relationships, sensitivities, risk points as well as outline, timeline, budget and performance indicators. Also, within the context of this assessment there will be an overview of how the fisheries community and potential partners might carry on these programs after the close of tsunami reconstruction activities in Indonesia.
