Creating Capability, Capacity & Culture Change 2000 1333 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) – Australia

The need to develop capability and capacity within Australian fishing and aquaculture is a key sectoral challenge.

Over the next decade, 41% of Australian agriculture, forestry and fisheries jobs will be transformed by technology. One in three new jobs created in these industries will be tech-related, making digital and data literacy essential. People who can lead, solve problems, think differently and adapt are critical to the success of Australia’s fishing and aquaculture sector and increasing ocean health.

Increased capability and capacity will be delivered using three initiatives: 1. Investing in people to strengthen capability and capacity, showcasing career and development pathways to enable and empower our future workforce 2. Establishing shared principles, values and trust through new ways of working to enable culture change and adoption 3. Developing confidence, resilience and courage to solve problems, manage uncertainty, respect and support each other.

This project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Ocean Best Practices for the Decade.
