The functions of the IPC are to: (i) study the scientific, technical, social and economic aspects of poplar and willow cultivation; (ii) promote the exchange of ideas and material between research workers, producers and users; (iii) arrange joint research programs; (iv) stimulate the organization of congresses, meetings and study tours; (v) report and make recommendations to the Conference of FAO through the Director General of FAO; and (vi) make recommendations to National Poplar Commissions through the Director General of FAO and the Governments concerned. At present there are 37 member countries of the IPC, of which 14 are developing countries and five are countries with economies in transition. IPC Sessions are held every four years. The previous meeting was in Budapest, Hungary in 1996. Five Working Parties as subsidiary bodies of the IPC reflect the main issues concerning the cultivation and utilization of the Salicaceae including (i) Poplar and Willow Genetics, Conservation and Improvement; (ii) Poplar and Willow Diseases; (iii) Poplar and Willow Insect and Animal Pests; (iv) Production Systems and Environmental Applications for Poplars and Willows; and (v) Logging and Utilization of Poplar and Willow Wood.

    The eighth session of the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) was held in Tirana, Albania, from 25 to 28 October 2005. It was attended by delegates from fifteen Members of the Commission. The Committee appraised the scientific and technical activities performed by its subsidiary bodies during the intersessional period as well as those of the FAO regional projects supporting the Commission. SAC reviewed fishery management proposals emanating from its Sub-Committees and formulated related advice for consideration by the Commission. It identified research priorities and agreed on its workplan for 2006. It also suggested measures for the protection of certain marine ecosystems. In particular, SAC endorsed some principles for implementing the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF), favoured the establishment of a Network on fish technologists to address gear selectivity issues and reiterated the importance of further standardiz ing stock assessment methodologies. The Committee emphasized the need to pursue efforts for implementing the Operational Units concept addressing the multispecies fisheries. It expressed the wish to accelerate the establishment of the GFCM databases and information system, including its vessel register and to monitor market aspects affecting fisheries management. The Committee renewed for another term the mandate of its Chair, as well as of its vice-chairpersons and further endorsed the nominati on of the coordinators of the four Sub-Committees.

    The IFIP project started in January 1989 with the main objective of promoting a more effective and rational exploitation of the fisheries resources of major water bodies of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa. The project is executed by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), and funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for a duration of four years.There are eleven countries and three intergovernmental organisations participating in the project: B urundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia, Zaire, Zimbabwe, The Communaute' Economique des Pays des Grands Lacs (CEPGL), The Preferential Trade Area for Eastern and Southern African States (PTA) and the Southern African Development Coordination Conference (SADCC). The immediate objectives of the project are: (i) to strengthen regional collaboration for the rational development and management of inland fisheries, particularly with respect to shared wate r bodies; (ii) to provide advisory services and assist Governments in sectoral and project planning; (iii) to strengthen technical capabilities through training; and (iv) to establish a regional information base. The present document consists of five out of twelve papers which were presented at the Symposium on Socio-economic aspects of Lake Victoria Fisheries or prepared for the Symposium by Tanzanian researchers who due to unforeseen circumstances could not attend. The Symposium was held i n Kisumu, Kenya from 25 to 27 april 1990. It was sponsored by the UNDP/FAO Inland Fisheries Planning (IFIP) project and organized in the interval of time separating the Fifth and the Sixth Session of the CIFA Sub-committee for ILake Victoria. The papers presented here are unedited and therefore do not imply the expression of any responsibility for the contents nor any opinion on the part of IFIP. This is the third publication following from the Symposium. After the report of the Symposiu m (TD/10/90), the other papers presented at or prepared for the Symposium have been issued in Volume 1
