The purpose of the Workshop was to assist countries in the subregion to develop capacity to elaborate national plans of action to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (NPOAs–IUU). The Workshop addressed issues relating to the 1995 FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, the 2001 FAO International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IPOA–IUU) and the FAO Fisheries Technical Guidelines for Responsible Fisheries No. 9 that have been developed to support the implementation of the IPOA– IUU; decision-making about IUU fishing and skills enhancement through the identification of key issues relating to the elaboration of NPOAs–IUU, the primary vehicle by which the IPOA–IUU will be implemented by countries. Working groups were formed to encourage maximum participation in the Workshop. A review of the major IUU fishing problems in the region and their possible solutions were discussed. Funding for the Workshop was provided by the Government of Japan through project GCP/INT/942/JPN entitled “Promotion of Sustainable Fisheries: Support for the Plan of Implementation of the Wo rld Summit on Sustainable Development: Phase II”.
