    The workshop was organized by the FAO Subregional Office for the Caribbean in collaboration with the Development Planning and Inland Water Resources and Aquaculture Services of the FAO Fisheries Department, Rome. It was hosted by the Government of Saint Lucia, and attended by 15 participants from seven countries, four regional institutions and the FAO Fisheries Department. The syntheses of the national experiences and status of aquaculture development in the Lesser Antilles reflected a signifi cant level of diversity in the scale of activities among the island nations; they also revealed many similarities in the results and present status of aquaculture development in the subregion. The case studies elicited very positive comments and enquiries from the country representatives. In the plenary deliberations, to identify the constraints to and opportunities for developing aquaculture sustainably in the subregion, participants recognized the need to rank the aquaculture development act ivities based on individual country-priorities and stage of development. The workshop agreed that participants would consult with the decision-makers in their respective countries and communicate a priority-list of needs for possible technical assistance to the technical secretary of the workshop. It was also agreed that such a list would be used to identify common themes that could form the basis for a possible subregional Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) project proposal.

    Saint Lucia and FAO have partnered since the country joined the organization in 1979. Assistance has been geared towards sustainable agricultural development and food and nutrition security, with a parallel focus on natural resource management. Ranging from national policy support to community-level projects, interventions seek to improve agricultural productivity and local food production as well as income-earning opportunities for rural communities. Other key features of cooperation are disaster risk management and adaptation to climate change.

    Saint Lucia is facing numerous interrelated challenges, ranging from low availability and a lack of access to food, and to a high dependency on imported and processed foods. A high level of unemployment coupled with high food prices has left vulnerable households struggling to procure foods necessary to meet their nutritional requirements. The project aimed to assist the Government of Saint Lucia to reduce the import of foods of low quality, improve the nutritional content of the diets of the population, and enhance the livelihoods of rural communities producing the food.
