Focus Partnering up with United Nations
Becoming the global reference
As I'm sure you all have memorized the FOCUS vision statement by heart
“To be the global reference for standards and innovative open source solutions for sustainable fisheries management “
we have since last taken some action to support our statement. I'm happy to reveal that FOCUS work and effort now has been recognized as true supporter of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Our support for SDG:14 is expressed as a UN-partnership, please visit the UN post about FOCUS, read more.
FOCUS will continue to seek partners and sponsors and intends to promote them all on focus.fish. If your organization wants to become a partner or sponsor of FOCUS, please contact me using the 'Contact' link bellow.
FOCUS has been addressed by Estonia with the intention to investigate the possibility of a donation covering a use-case relating to reporting for small-scale fisheries. FOCUS is thrilled about this information and has started an evaluation of the proposal according the our donation process.
The preparation of the next release of UVMS which will also mark the start of our usage of GIT-HUB and Jira issue tracking, is ongoing and has been verified. A draft developer how-to article has been published on FOUCS-Docs, feel free to read and contribute.
