    How to monitor implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries?
    FSN Forum report of activity No. 164
    2020
    Also available in:

    This document summarizes the online consultation How to monitor implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries? held on the FAO Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum) from 17 February to 16 March 2020. The consultation was facilitated by the Small-Scale Fisheries Core Team from FAO in Rome, Italy. The goal of this online consultation was to solicit views, suggestions and recommendations for monitoring the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines), which were endorsed in 2014 by the FAO Committee on Fisheries. Input received during this consultation will feed into FAO’s work on measuring progress in the implementation of the SSF Guidelines at the national level. During the consultation, participants first shared ideas on how progress towards securing small-scale fisheries can be defined, selecting the most important chapters and paragraphs of the SSF Guidelines in this regard and discussing the geographical scales at which progress should be measured. Next, participants proposed indicators for assessing progress, with some of them sharing information on relevant monitoring and evaluation frameworks. Last, participants identified key elements of successful participatory monitoring and shared their own experiences in this field.

    Comment améliorer les rapports sur les forêts primaires
    Rapport sur l'activité du Forum FSN no. 163
    2020
    Also available in:

    Ce document est une synthèse de la discussion en ligne Comment améliorer les rapports sur les forêts primaires tenue du 11 au 25 février 2020 sur le site du Forum global sur la sécurité alimentaire et la nutrition (Forum FSN) de la FAO. Cette consultation a été animée par Brendan Mackey et Patrick Norman de la Griffith University, Australie. Cette consultation en ligne avait pour but de solliciter des commentaires sur un projet de document de référence portant sur les méthodes passées, actuelles et émergentes d’évaluation des zones de forêts primaires, actuellement en cours d’élaboration par la FAO en collaboration avec les pays et d’autres parties prenantes. Ce document de référence est destiné à faciliter les discussions lors des ateliers qui réuniront les correspondants nationaux de l’Évaluation des ressources forestières mondiales (FRA) de la FAO et d’autres experts pour discuter de la manière d’améliorer la communication d’informations sur les forêts primaires. Au cours de cette consultation, les participants ont débattu des définitions relatives aux forêts primaires et de leur adéquation aux besoins d’évaluation et de rapport, et ont identifié ce qu’ils percevaient comme des lacunes dans le projet de document de référence. Les participants ont en outre échangé des informations sur les méthodes et les données qu’ils utilisent pour évaluer les zones de forêts primaires et ont abordé les changements méthodologiques nécessaires pour améliorer les rapports, en veillant tout particulièrement à promouvoir la cohérence entre les pays.

    Report of the Expert Workshop on Aquaculture Co-management
    Hybrid meeting, Kigali, Rwanda, 8–10 June 2022
    2023

    The FAO Expert Workshop on Aquaculture Co-management gathered global experience and knowledge relevant to the definition and characterization of aquaculture co-management. The main objectives of the workshop were to: elucidate the concept of aquaculture co-management in terms of definition, rationale, scope, objective and underlying principles; discuss the effective implementation of aquaculture co-management; draft a methodology and the main steps to guide a successful implementation of co-management systems in aquaculture; and reflect on future sector developments and the role of co-management in aquaculture. The workshop took place in hybrid mode from 8 to 11 June 2022 in Kigali, Rwanda. Eighteen experts attended the workshop, with eleven attending in person and seven joining online. The main topics discussed included: (i) overview of the background document on Aquaculture Co-management; (ii) presentation of the concept and application scope, requirements and characteristics of aquaculture co-management; (iii) the models and practices to guide a successful implementation of co-management system in aquaculture; (iv) future sector developments and the role of co-management; (v) the monitoring and evaluation of aquaculture co-management; and (vi) the main steps to guide a successful implementation of aquaculture co-management. During the workshop, participants were presented with a draft rationale, a definition, principles and models of aquaculture co-management as outlined in a background document which was shared ahead of the event. They were then invited to provide advice on these elements of aquaculture co-management to establish a shared understanding of the concept and define a pathway for its further development. The expert input will be used to develop a methodology, produce a guidebook to establish aquaculture co-management systems, write case studies and conduct outreach activities.
