    The Latin America and Caribbean Regional Consultative Meeting was one of three regional consultative workshops carried out as a follow-up to the 2009 inception workshop of the FAO Extrabudgetary Programme on Fisheries and Aquaculture for Poverty Alleviation and Food Security. The workshops built on the outcomes of the Global Conference on Small-scale Fisheries held in Bangkok in October 2008 and referred to the recommendations made by the 26th Session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) in March 2009 with regard to the potential development of an international instrument and programme for Small-scale fisheries. The purpose of the workshops was to provide guidance on the scope and contents of such an international small-scale fisheries instrument and on the possible priorities and implementation modalities for a global assistance programme. It was organized around plenary presentations on key subjects and working group discussions. The workshop agreed that an international instrum ent on small-scale fisheries and a related programme would be important tools for securing sustainable small-scale fisheries. It recommended that a small-scale fisheries international instrument and assistance programme should be informed by human rights principles and existing instruments relevant to good governance and sustainable development, comprise the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) as a guiding principle for resource management and development, and incorporate Disaster Risk Managem ent (DRM) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) as an integral part considering that DRM is a continuum process, before, during and after a disaster. The instrument should draw upon the available experiences with good governance practices in small-scale fisheries at national, regional and global levels and strengthen mechanisms for information sharing and communication, including by regional and subregional organizations and by associations and networks of fishworkers organizations, both of men an d women, and civil society organizations (CSO). The instrument should draw on the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, as well as the international voluntary guidelines that are being developed under the auspices of FAO on land tenure and natural resources. It was recognized that there was a continuing need to promote the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries in small-scale fisheries.

    The African workshop was one of three regional consultative workshops carried out as a follow-up to the 2009 inception workshop of the FAO Extra-Budgetary Programme on Fisheries and Aquaculture for Poverty Alleviation and Food Security. The workshops built on the outcomes of the Global Conference on Small-Scale Fisheries held in Bangkok in October 2008 and referred to the recommendations made by the 26th Session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) in March 2009 with regard to the potential development of an international instrument and programme for small-scale fisheries. The purpose of the workshops was to provide guidance on the scope and contents of such an international small-scale fisheries instrument and on the possible priorities and implementation modalities for a global assistance programme. It was organised around plenary presentations on key subjects and working group discussions. The workshop agreed that an international instrument on small-scale fisheries and a rela ted programme would be important tools for securing sustainable small-scale fisheries. It recommended that a small-scale fisheries international instrument and assistance programme should be informed by human rights principles and existing instruments relevant to good governance and sustainable development, comprise the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) as a guiding principle for resource management and development and incorporate Disaster Risk Management (DRM) and Climate Change Adaption (C CA) as an integral part considering that DRM is a continuum process, before, during and after a disaster. The workshop recognised the value and worldwide acceptance of the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries and strongly felt that a small-scale fisheries instrument should be closely aligned to the Code. The instrument should build on what already exists and use a similar language to the Code. In developing the instrument, reference should be made not only to States but also to other sta keholders, recognizing the shared responsibility with regard to resource sustainability and livelihood security. Local, national and regional ownership should be ensured. Implementation aspects should be considered already at the design stage, including the need for technical guidance and supportive mechanisms. Results monitoring should be based on well-defined impact indicators and be an integral part of the implementation modalities.

    There is growing international and national recognition of the critical role small-scale fisheries play in food security and poverty alleviation. Latest estimates indicate that they contribute over half of the world's marine and inland fish catch. Yet small-scale fishing communities often face precarious and vulnerable living and working conditions. Contributing factors include insecure rights to land and fishery resources, inadequate or absent health and educational services and social safety n ets, vulnerability to natural disasters and climate change and exclusion from wider development processes due to weak organizational structures and representation and participation in decision-making. In response, the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific convened a workshop in Bangkok, Thailand from 6 to 8 October 2010 to consult with national and regional stakeholders in Asia and the Pacific to identify good practices in the governance of small-scale fisheries. This document presents th e outcome of the workshop.
