    This document describes the overall principles and main thematic areas of the EAF-Nansen Programme’s Science Plan, including the use of the research vessel (R/V) Dr Fridtjof Nansen as a key tool for fieldwork. Three main research areas are identified, dealing with impacts of fishing, oil/gas activities and presence of contaminants, and climate variability and change on marine resources and ecosystems. These research areas are then subdivided into eleven main themes. Data used for the research activities are collected through the surveys with the R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen, including the data collected during the previous phases of the Nansen Programme.

    This is the report of a regional workshop organised under the EAF-Nansen Programme “Supporting the application of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries management considering climate and pollution impacts”. The workshop took place at the premises of the National Fisheries Research Institute (Institut National de Recherche Halieutique - INRH) in Casablanca, Morocco from 5 to 7 May 2017. The main objectives of the workshop were to determine regional priorities within the research themes of the EAF-Nansen Programme science plan, identify specific research that could be carried out collaboratively and to review objectives of the 2017 R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen survey in Northwest Africa. Ce document est le rapport d'un atelier régional organisé dans le cadre du Programme EAF-Nansen «Appuyer l'application de l'approche écosystémique de la gestion des pêches en tenant compte des impacts du climat et de la pollution». L'atelier s'est déroulé à l'Institut national de recherche halieutique (INRH) à Casablanca, au Maroc, du 5 au 7 mai 2017. Les principaux objectifs de l'atelier étaient de déterminer les priorités régionales au niveau des thèmes de recherche du plan scientifique du Programme EAF-Nansen, d’identifier les travaux de recherche spécifiques qui pourraient être menés en collaboration et d’examiner les objectifs de la campagne 2017 du N/R Dr Fridtjof Nansen en Afrique du Nord-Ouest.

    The EAF-Nansen Programme (2017-2021)
    Supporting the Application of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management considering Climate Change and Pollution Impacts
    2018
    Also available in:

    The Norway-funded Nansen Programme has supported developing countries in fisheries research and management for more than 40 years, evolving over time to address key drivers of importance for fisheries management. This makes it one of the longest running fisheries projects in the world (if not the longest). Over the years the programme has developed into a unique mechanism for cooperation, knowledge and manpower exchange in developing regions and particularly in Africa. On 24 March 2017, the programme agreement for the new EAF-Nansen Programme "Supporting the application of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries management, considering climate and pollution impacts " was signed in Oslo, Norway, by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), the Norwegian Institute for Marine Research (IMR) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Fisheries and environmental surveys with the research vessel Dr Fridtjof Nansen have been an important and integral part of the program throughout its lifetime- and a brand new state of the art research vessel has been made available to the new programme. Thanks to the use of the UN flag, the R/V Dr. Fridtjof Nansen could easily move across jurisdictional boundaries and address transboundary issues. As for the EAF-Nansen project, the EAF-Nansen Programme is implemented by FAO in close collaboration with the Institute of Marine Research of Norway, who operates the R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen and provides scientific services to the Programme.
