    The Government of the Republic of Zambia is developing a National Policy on Climate Change whose main aim is to mainstream Climate Change in the country’s development goals and programs. At the same time, the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock is reviewing the National Agriculture Policy of 2004-2015 to capture changed political and the changing socio- economic and environmental conditions with special consideration of the climate change impacts on the Agricultural sector. The Government of Z ambia through the Ministries of Agriculture and Livestock (MAL) and the Ministry of Lands, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection (MLNREP), requested the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to facilitate a harmonization process between the two draft policies within the framework of the Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) project being implemented by the MAL with technical support from FAO with financial support of the European Union. A policy dialogue aimed at harmonizing the two polic ies was therefore convened with participants (see participants list in Annex 1) consisting of the key policy, planning and legal specialists from the two Ministries and Cabinet Office with technical support from the CSA Technical team and an independent facilitator agreed on by both Ministries at Chaminuka Lodge in Chongwe District of Lusaka from 12th-14th August 2013.

    The Indian Ocean Tu Commission (IOTC) is an intergovernmental organisation mandated to mage tu and tu-like species in the Indian Ocean and adjacent seas. Its objective is to promote cooperation among its Members with a view to ensuring, through appropriate magement, the conservation and optimum utilisation of stocks and encouraging sustaible development of fisheries based on such stocks. Since 1998, the IOTC has adopted a series of conservation and magement measures at its Annual Session. As req uired by Article X of the IOTC Agreement, each Member of the Commission shall ensure that such action is taken, under its tiol legislation, including the imposition of adequate pelties for violations, as may be necessary to make effective the provisions of this Agreement and to implement conservation and magement measures which become binding on it. At the Fourteenth Session of the IOTC, held in March 2010 as well as in previous sessions of the Commission, a general conclusion of the Commission was with regard to the low level of implementation of IOTC Resolutions. In particular it was noted that in some of the Member States and Cooperating non-Contracting Parties (CPCs) the concerned personnel of the fisheries administrations and other stakeholders (e.g., vessels’ owners) still have limited awareness of the objectives of the Commission; the IOTC Resolutions and the country obligations. In this context, the IOTC Secretariat solicited, and was granted assistance by the ACP Fish II Progr amme to fund a regiol workshop to support the implementation of the Resolutions of the Indian Ocean Tu Commission. The objectives of the Workshop were to build the capacity of some IOTC Members countries to implement the decisions (Resolutions) of the Commission and to discuss and understand some of the difficulties that these countries are faced with in the process of implementing these decisions. The Workshop also discussed measures that would help improve their compliance level. The Workshop saw the participation from seven ACP Member States (Kenya, Mozambique, Sudan, Tanzania, Seychelles, Mauritius, and Comoros) plus one other non ACP State (Maldives), which are also IOTC Members. The Workshop provided the ideal opportunity for the technical staff of the beneficiary countries, who are involved in implementing the decisions of the Commission, to share their experiences and challenges. At the conclusion of the Workshop the participants made nine recommendations, which in their view w ill result in improved implementation of the IOTC resolutions and a more effective Commission.
