    Legal report on the ecosystem approach to fisheries in Guinea-Bissau
    An analysis of the ecosystem approach to fisheries in selected national policy and legal instruments of Guinea-Bissau
    2022
    Also available in:

    Legislating for the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) is complex, due to the holistic nature of the EAF involving multiple factors that underpin the social, economic, environmental, and institutional aspects of fisheries sustainability. These factors include ecosystems integration, risks, inter-sectoral collaboration, research, participatory processes, monitoring, control, surveillance, and enforcement, among others. To assess how the EAF is being implemented through national policy and legal frameworks, FAO developed A diagnostic tool for implementing an ecosystem approach to fisheries through national policy and legal frameworks. The present legal report on the EAF used the diagnostic tool to assess the alignment of selected policy and legal instruments of Guinea-Bissau with the EAF. This assessment analysed the extent to which 82 EAF legal requirements, which are considered the minimum standards in legislating for the EAF, are reflected in Guinea-Bissau's policies and legislation relevant to the fisheries sector of the country and other relevant sectors (such as environment, wildlife, ecosystems, and maritime affairs). Based on this preliminary diagnosis, gaps were identified in the assessed instruments, and recommendations were made for improving the implementation of the EAF This report was elaborated following a participatory approach with the involvement of the national competent authorities of Guinea-Bissau. Drafted in July 2021, the report was submitted to the national authorities of Guinea-Bissau in October 2021. The Ministry of Fisheries, through its Secretary-General and Legal Office, endorsed this EAF Legal Report of Guinea-Bissau in July 2022.

This region includes the 22 member countries of the League of Arab States. Based on national statistics, data, reports and key informants the report provides an overview of the main characteristics of child labour among different sectors of economic activity in the Arab region. It also examines the impact of armed conflict and population displacement on child labour. The report concludes with a number of policy analyses and proposes several recommendations to address the issue of child labour in the region, the most important of which is the development of a regional strategy to combat the worst forms of child labour.
