Sustainable Fishery and Renewable Energy in Perspective of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Re-visiting SDG Indicators 7.2.1 and 14.7.1
Keywords:sustainable fishery, renewable energy, SDGs, fishing vessels/fleets, on board application
This article explores sustainable fishery and renewable energy with the perspective of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a special focus on improving the data collection, computation, reporting and analysis for SDG Indicators 7.2.1 and 14.7.1. This article finds that the estimation of renewable energy consumed in fishing vessels/fleets, which is a part of SDG Indicator 7.2.1, can be used to estimate the costs for preserving and/or processing fishes on board, which is essential to compute the value added of marine fishery. A number of practice-oriented implications, especially in the context of small island developing states (SIDS) and least developed countries (LDCs), are discussed in this article. For example, international organizations may consider taking effective actions in capacity development and awareness raising, especially in SIDS and LDCs. More interdisciplinary studies, which can provide evidence for holistic approaches to support the development renewable energy and its use in fishing vessels/fleets, should also be encouraged. This article, as an early conceptual research in this field, also have limitations which should be addressed by future studies.
