    The inception workshop for the preparation of the FAO/GEF project “Mainstreaming Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Use into Inland Fisheries Practices in Freshwater Ecosystems of High Conservation Value” was held in Jakarta, Indonesia, on 8–9 September 2014. It brought together stakeholder groups from both government and non-government sectors, including private industry, academia and UN Agencies. The workshop reviewed the overall project framework approved for funding by the GEF and its four main components on: (i) mainstreaming of inland aquatic biodiversity into resource development and management policy; (ii) demonstrations of conservation and sustainable use of inland aquatic biodiversity; (iii) monitoring and assessment of inland aquatic biodiversity; and (iv) project monitoring and evaluation, and adaptive learning. It also identified issues of concern that could be addressed in the project (including the need to generate global environmental benefits in the GEF Biodiver sity Focal Area), clarified project preparation steps, and confirmed potential Indonesia partners, champions and resources during the preparation and, eventually, project implementation phase. As a next step, the workshop recommended that four technical workshops should be organized by the national consultants, including one on each of the three islands selected for the project, i.e. Sumatra, Java and Borneo. The technical workshops will provide a baseline analysis, identify gaps and areas of wo rk at the project sites, and provide inputs to the project result framework. The project preparation team will work towards having consultants’ reports completed by mid-February 2015 and a mid-term progress workshop by mid-March 2015, which will allow the preparation of a draft project document by May for submission to GEF in June 2015.

    Report of the FAO Regional Workshop on Port State Measures to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing. Cape Town, South Africa, 28–31 January 2008. 2008

    This document contains the report of the FAO Regional Workshop on Port State Measures to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing, which was held at Cape Town, South Africa, from 28 to 31 January 2008. The objective of the Workshop was to develop national capacity and promote bilateral, sub-regional and/or regional coordination so that countries will be better placed to strengthen and harmonize port State measures and, as a result, implement the relevant International Plan of Act ion to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA–IUU) tools and the FAO Model Scheme and contribute to the development of a legally-binding instrument on port State measures. The Workshop addressed: background and framework for port State measures; global and regional issues relating to IUU fishing and port State measures, and the 2005 FAO Model Scheme on Port State Measures to Combat IUU Fishing; the 2007 draft Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, De ter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing and the implementation of regional and national port State measures; adoption and implementation of port State measures by regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) and the implementation of measures in the Southern and East Africa subregion; operational and information requirements for effective port State measures; industry perspectives on port State measures and national responses to questionnaires; and key issues for fur ther action and cooperation in strengthening and harmonizing port State measures. Working groups were formed to enhance the participatory nature of the Workshop and as a means of engendering broader and deeper discussion on concepts and issues relating to port State measures. In one exercise they addressed various aspects of port State measures, and recommended and prioritized areas for regional cooperation in implementing port State measures. They also identified further types of support needed to implement port State measures and in another exercise they considered certain thematic aspects relating to the FAO Model Scheme and the draft Agreement on port State measures. This exercise included legal aspects, information requirements, systems and inspection procedures, the results of inspection and training. Funding and support for the Workshop were provided by the FAO Regular Programme, by the Government of Norway through the Trust Fund for Port State Measures (MTF/GLO/206/MUL) and the FishCode Programme (MTF/GLO/125/MUL [Sweden-SIDA] [SWE/05/IUU Port State Measures/IUU fishing]). Funding was also provided by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
