    The Regional Conference on Food Security and Income Generation through Reduction of Losses and Waste in Fisheries was held from 15 -17 December 2013, in Nouakchott, Islamic Republic of Mauritania. The objectives of the conference were to review the current practices in the sector in the Near East and North Africa region, examine case studies of best practices globally and discuss the best options for the region, and identify policy level and operational level interventions to improve food securi ty and income generation through reduction of losses and waste in fisheries in Near East and North Africa region. Case studies from the region on best practices in five countries were presented and discussed, following which presentations, working groups and discussions focused on four technical topics: a) best practices and strategies for minimizing post-harvest losses and waste; b) improved utilization of fishery by-products for minimizing waste; c) value chain based approach for minimizing fi sh loss and waste; and d) best practices for fish bycatch and discard management. The conference unanimously adopted the Noukchott Declaration, which included, among other things the need for appropriate policies and legislative frameworks and strategies should be established, which include a more participatory approach to fisheries management and to create a supportive and enabling environment for value chain actors in small-scale fisheries. Additionally, declaration called on countries in the region to develop and build the capacity of resource users and managers, including post-harvest stakeholders and service providers, in order to pursue and achieve a significant reduction of loss and waste, throughout the fish supply chain from the catch to the consumer’s table.
