    Kenya fisheries governance 2012
    Also available in:

    Fisheries governance in Kenya has historically being focused on the inland sector. Governance of the marine sector has and still is weak although the essential components of good governance are in place. Fisheries legislation is generally sound with the new bill aiming at strengthening Kenya’s interests in the offshore sector – in particular the tuna and shrimp industrial sectors. Due to the high level of community involvement on the coast, interaction with the industrial fishing sectors, such a s the shrimp fishery, is a major governance and fishery management challenge. Governance of Kenya’s fisheries in the offshore sector is almost zero and limited to licensing fees with no culture of managing these licenses. This has effectively led to “non-performance” of Kenya due primarily to weak governance in this sector. Within territorial waters a key governance structure has been the implementation of Beach Management Units – essentially a co-management approach. There is little evidence to demonstrate the effectiveness of BMUs although in principle the concept is good.

    This FAO Legal Paper looks at and evaluates the present laws and policies relating to sustainable small-scale fisheries in the fisheries and aquaculture legislation in operation in Sierra Leone and makes recommendations to align them with the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT). This Paper provides a brief introduction of the fisheries sector in Sierra Leone, focusing on the small-scale sect or with an overview of the uses and access rights to resources. It provides an analysis of institutional structure and fisheries management and identifies the importance of inclusion for certain communities and traditional systems in order to improve livelihoods and economic prosperity for the state. This Paper forms part of a series of legal assessment reports for Sierra Leone against the VGGT, which were endorsed by the Committee on World Food Security in May 2012.
