    Legal report on the ecosystem approach to fisheries in Mozambique
    An analysis of the ecosystem approach to fisheries in selected national policy and legal instruments of Mozambique
    2022
    Also available in:

    Legislating for the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) is complex, due to the holistic nature of the EAF involving multiple factors that underpin the social, economic, environmental, and institutional aspects of fisheries sustainability. These factors include ecosystems integration, risks, inter-sectoral collaboration, research, participatory processes, monitoring, control, surveillance, and enforcement, among others. To assess how the EAF is being implemented through national policy and legal frameworks, FAO developed A diagnostic tool for implementing an ecosystem approach to fisheries through national policy and legal frameworks. The present legal report on the EAF used the diagnostic tool to assess the alignment of selected policy and legal instruments of Mozambique with the EAF. This assessment analysed the extent to which 82 EAF legal requirements, which are considered the minimum standards in legislating for the EAF, are reflected in Mozambique 's policies and legislation relevant to the fisheries sector of the country and other relevant sectors (such as environment, wildlife, ecosystems, and maritime affairs). Based on this preliminary diagnosis, gaps were identified in the assessed instruments, and recommendations were made for improving the implementation of the EAF. This report was elaborated following a participatory approach with the involvement of the national competent authorities of Mozambique. Drafted in July 2021, the report was first submitted to the national authorities of Mozambique in October 2021, further revised in view of the adoption of new relevant legal instruments by Mozambique and re-submitted to the national authorities in June 2022. The Ministry of the Sea, Inland Waters and Fisheries of Mozambique endorsed this EAF Legal Report of Mozambique in September 2022.
