    This document presents the results of applying the Fishery Performance Indicators Development (FPI-DEV) tool to the large pelagic fisheries sector of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. This rapid assessment tool is designed to support coastal and island developing countries, including Small Island Developing States (SIDS) like Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, in measuring improved sustainability outcomes for fishery systems. The report details improvements to be made to the five pillars of sustainable development: sustainable economic development, environmental sustainability, inclusive development, increasing scientific knowledge and ocean governance, with a focus on sustainable marine fisheries and seafood processing in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

    La Sourfrière volcano eruption
    2021

    On 9 April 2021, La Soufrière volcano in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines erupted, with multiple explosions occurring over a period of several weeks, affecting most of the island’s population and displacing thousands due to the mandatory evacuation issued the day before. The effects of the disaster on the country’s main economic activities add to the already complex situation due to the largest wave of coronavirus disease 2019 in the country coupled with the worst outbreak of dengue fever in recent history in the region. Reports show extensive damage and losses in critical areas. Forests and farms have been wiped out, along with the destruction of large areas of staple crops and the loss of productive assets. In addition, recent heavy rains have caused both flooding and lahar flows across various parts of the country. This has severely disrupted the livelihoods of vulnerable populations who depend on agriculture, livestock, fisheries and forestry for their subsistence. In response, FAO is requesting USD 2.5 million to support 4 000 affected households through rapid recovery and rehabilitation activities to ultimately strengthen their resilience against multiple hazards and systemic risks, as well as complex emergencies affecting and threatening the entire food system.
