    Report of the EAF-Nansen Project Trainers Workshop. Rome, 16-20 February 2009 2011
    Also available in:

    A workshop for Trainers was organised at the FAO headquarters in Rome from 16 to 20 February 2009 under the EAF-Nansen project ¿Strengthening the Knowledge Base for and Implementing an Ecosystem Approach to Marine Fisheries in Developing Countries¿. It was attended by experts from the four operational regions of the EAF-Nansen project in Africa and one FAO EAF project in Europe. Jorge Csirke, Director of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Management Division, noted that the workshop i s one of the most important activities within the capacity building component of the EAF-Nansen project and that the participants are expected to be involved in national and regional activities under the EAF-Nansen project. The training covered fundamentals of the ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAF), ecological risk assessment methodology and the development and review of fisheries management plans. Participants were also introduced to workshop facilitation. Practical ex ercises were undertaken in working groups. It was noted that although there are several opportunities for the management of fisheries in Africa in line with the ecosystem approach, the major challenges include getting political and management buy-in, recognising that EAF is not just a scientific exercise and the lack of institutional integration and adequate resources for fisheries management. The Participants noted that the training had prepared them for the task expected of them but admitted that the practice looked a bit scary and that it would be better to organise another meeting where real issues are presented and the problems tackled. The aspects of the course on how to interact with stakeholders was singled out as extremely good so was the ecological risk assessment methodology although it was thought that a better appreciation of the latter would require a dedicated extended course.
