    In 2019, FAO conducted a workshop for the Pacific region to raise awareness on SDG 14.b and the important linkages to relevant regional and global frameworks, as well as to help strengthen capacities of member countries to collect and compile relevant data and information for reporting on SDG indicator 14.b.1. The workshop recommended that further guidance is needed to assist Pacific Island Member Countries to better understand and to consequently improve reporting on the SDG 14.b.1 indicator. The internationally agreed methodology for reporting on SDG indicator 14.b.1 is based on countries’ responses to three questions found in the online FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (CCRF) survey. The guidance document therefore provides detailed, practical guidance in the context of the Pacific, on the process for responding to the three FAO CCRF survey questions relating to SDG indicator 14.b.1, highlighting important links to relevant information including Pacific regional frameworks on coastal fisheries.

    Forty participants from the Islamic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates participated in the RECOFI Data Workshop Series: Minimum Data Reporting (MDR) regional database, RECOFI-FIRMS stocks and fisheries inventories and SDG Indicator 14.4.1: Proportion of fish stocks within biologically sustainable levels. The workshop reviewed the MDR indicators and priority species list for endorsement, reviewed the presentation of pilot MDR RECOFI regional database and adopted an MDR data submission template. With regards to the RECOFI – FIRMS stocks and fisheries inventories, the workshop acknowledged the progress made so far and recommended that the Member Countries finalize and publish the RECOFI Fisheries inventory. The workshop also recognized the importance of publishing the work on the priority species presented at each meeting of the WGFM under the RECOFI - FIRMS collection as marine resource fact sheets. The workshop discussed the focal points list for MDR/FIRMS that will be circulated to Member Countries for finalisation and further discussed at the next meeting of the WGFM and approved at the next session of RECOFI. On SDG 14.4.1, the workshop agreed that the SDG 14.4.1 focal point list would be verified and validated and RECOFI Members’ reference list of stocks would be confirmed as either shared, transboundary and national, and communicate any issues with the outcomes.

    In recognition of the fisheries sector’s contributions and responsibilities to the global goals, the Sustainable Development Goal Target 14 - Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development - includes a target and monitoring indicator specifically related to the sustainability of fish stocks which aims to monitor the proportion of fish stocks within biologically sustainable levels in order to achieve the target of restoring fish stocks in the shortest time feasible. As part of a larger workshop series on the SDG 14.4.1, the community of Regional Commission for Fisheries (RECOFI) countries were invited to participate in a special 3-hour introductory session on 5 August 2021 to present the indicator and reporting process, and participate in discussions towards a reference list of stocks for each country and for the region.
