    This document contains the report of, and the papers presented at, the FAO/FFA Regional Workshop to Promote the Full and Effective Implementation of Port State Measures to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated [IUU] Fishing, which was held at Nadi, Fiji, from 28 August to 1 September 2006. The objective of the workshop was to develop national capacity and promote regional coordination so that countries will be better placed to strengthen and harmonize port State measures and, as a result, meet the requirements of relevant Regional Fishery Management Organizations and implement the relevant tools of the 2001 FAO International Plan of Action on IUU Fishing and the 2005 FAO Model Scheme on port State measures to combat IUU fishing (FAO Model Scheme). Funding and support for the workshop were given by: the FAO FishCode Programme through its TrainFish Component, supported by the Government of Sweden and its small islands developing States Component, supported by the Government of Jap an; the FAO Regular Programme; the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency; the West and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission; the Western Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Council; and the Governments of the Federated States of Micronesia, New Zealand, Tokelau, Tonga, the United States of America and Vanuatu.

    This document contains the report of, and the papers presented at, the FAO Workshop on the Implementation of the 1995 FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries in the Pacific Islands: A Call to Action which was held in Nadi, Fiji, from 27 to 31 October 2003. The goals of the Workshop were to facilitate a greater understanding of the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries among all stakeholders involved in fisheries in the Pacific Islands; to foster steps towards the more effective impleme ntation of the Code in the region; to encourage fishery policy revisions reflecting the objectives and general principles of the Code and to encourage an inclusive approach to management whereby stakeholders are involved in the development and review processes and the implementation of measures rather than an exclusive process where stakeholders are largely excluded from the processes. In the course of its deliberations, the Workshop addressed the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries and it s framework; legal considerations and issues relating to the Code; responsible fisheries management; responsible fishing operations; responsible aquaculture and inland fisheries; responsible post-harvest practices and trade and the integration of fisheries into coastal area management. In addition, there was a role-playing exercise concerning making responsible decisions about fisheries. To enhance the participatory nature of the Workshop, five Working Groups were formed. They focused on fisheri es management, fishing operations, aquaculture and inland fisheries development, postharvest practices and trade and the integration of fisheries into coastal area management. Each Working Group developed conclusions and recommendations. The Workshop endorsed several national, regional and global follow-up actions. The Workshop was funded by the FAO FishCode Programme through Project GCP/INT/823/JPN (SIDS: Responsible Fisheries for Small Island Developing States) and the FAO Regular Programme.

    The MAR-SFM Project conducted questionnaire surveys on MAR-SFM with eight Pacific countries to comprehend the status of development of MAR prior to the Workshop on Monitoring, Assessment, and Reporting for Sustainable Forest Management in the South Pacific Region, Nadi, Fiji, 10 - 12 October 2007. The responding countries include Fiji, Kiribati, Micronesia, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Samoa, Solomon, Tonga, and Vanuatu. The questionnaire focused on overall national monitoring and assessment systems, including applied remote sensing/GIS techniques, ground-level surveys or national forest inventories, forest/land cover classification, national and international reporting systems, use of MAR information, and coordination/collaboration.
