    The 2019 annual meeting of the ICES-FAO Working Group on Fishing Technology and Fish Behaviour (WGFTFB) was held from 8 to 12 April 2019 in Shanghai, China. The meeting was hosted by FAO in close collaboration with the Shanghai Ocean University. More than 120 fishing technologists, scientists and other stakeholders, representing 23 countries from Europe, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia, attended this meeting. This report summarizes the four-day symposium, on “Responsible Fishing Technology for Healthy Ecosystems and a Clean Environment”, which was organized as part of the 2019 annual meeting of the ICES-FAO WGFTFB. The symposium comprised eight thematic sessions: (i) abandoned, lost and otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG): assessment of quantity and measures to prevent ALDFG and its impact; (ii) interactions of protected species in capture fisheries; (iii) light, fish behaviour and fishing; (iv) technology and management to reduce bycatch and discards; (v) selectivity of fishing gear: means and methods; (vi) new technologies for fisheries research and education; (vii) energy, technology, analysis and simulation; and (viii) Chinese fisheries - status, challenges and future. The symposium provided an opportunity for fishing technologists and other experts from ICES and FAO member countries to exchange knowledge and ideas from around the world, especially from non-ICES member countries in Asia and Latin America.

    Enabling legal environment for the responsible governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forestry
    Legal brief for parliamentarians in Latin America and the Caribbean No. 4
    2020
    Also available in:

    The responsible governance of tenure, based on principles of human rights, allows for fair access to land, fishing and forests. It also protects people against arbitrary loss of their rights, including evictions. It prevents discriminatory practices and results in transparent and participatory decision-making processes. It also guarantees equality before the law and can prevent disputes, thanks to its mechanisms of conflict resolution. Ultimately, it promotes food security by guaranteeing access to natural resources and protecting the rights of the people who depend on them. This document contains the keys to make governance fairer, based on principles established by Human Rights. This document will address: i) an analysis of the international and regional framework established by the legal bases in Latin America and the Caribbean; ii) the measures recommended to the States to face this challenge; iii) the need to include the gender issue in resource tenure; and iv) the necessary parliamentary actions to promote legislation in their favour.
