    This document is the final report of the Third Intergovernmental Consultation on the Establishment of a Southwest Indian Ocean Fisheries Commission, held in Nairobi, Kenya, from 27 to 30 January 2004. The Consultation was attended by delegates from fifteen FAO Member countries, one international non-governmental organization, two international development agencies and the United Nations Development Programme. For waters under the sovereignty of coastal States, the Consultation agreed that a re gional body for the management and development of coastal fisheries, with advisory powers only, be set up under Article VI of the FAO Constitution. For the high seas, it agreed that there should be a separate instrument, outside of the FAO, with the power to take binding decisions on conservation and management measures. The Consultation recognized the right of involvement of coastal States in the high seas instrument and identified linkages between the proposed coastal State and the high seas a rrangements. The Consultation also agreed on the draft text for a resolution to the FAO Council and for the statutes of a regional body for the management and development of coastal fisheries. Possible elements of a draft agreement for the high seas were briefly discussed.

    In Kenya, to satisfy the rapidly increasing demand for animal source food (ASFs) of growing urbann populations, livestock holdings and value chains in and around peri-urban and urban areas are transforming more rapidly than elsewhere in the country, risking to exacerbate the negative impacts of livestock keeping on the environment and public health. The extent to which livestock-associated pathogens pose risks to public health is determined by the broader context in which livestock stakeholders operate and behave, both collectively and individually. Understanding stakeholders' behaviour as they perform various functions along the various livestock value chains is therefore crucial to inform, revise, and update policies. In order to identify major public health hazards associated with the particularly rapidly expanding poultry value chain(s), FAO, in collaboration with the veterinary service directorates of urban and peri-urban counties of Kiambu and Nairobi, surveyed the poultry value chain actors to assess their business practices and extent to which they comply with recommended biosecurity and public health practices.
