    Report of the ANNUAL FORUM OF THE EAF-NANSEN PROJECT / THEME: THE ECOSYSTEM APPROACH TO FISHERIES - OPPORTUNITIES FOR AFRICA. Rome, 16 December 2008 2010
    Also available in:

    The first EAF-Nansen project Annual Forum was held at FAO headquarters in Rome, on 16 December 2008 under the theme: The Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries – Opportunities for Africa. It was attended by 35 persons made up of national experts, representatives of partner projects, the Institute of Marine Research in Norway, Norad and FAO. The agenda was made up of presentations on the EAF-Nansen project, results of some of the project activities and case studies. The Annual Forum is for progress reporting, dissemination of experiences, identification of best practices and discussion of strategies. The objectives of the 2008 Forum were to provide the platform to exchange views on the EAF-Nansen project implementation and on proposals for future collaborative activities that will speed up understanding and uptake of the principles of EAF and most importantly its implementation to ensure more effective management of fishery resources in Africa. The keynote presentation on Global Pers pective and Applicability of EAF in Africa made reference to the World Bank/FAO report entitled “The Sunken Billions: The Economic Justification for Fisheries Reformâ€Â and highlighted the need for change in fisheries management that involves improving human well-being and equity, applying the precautionary approach, developing adaptive management systems, ensuring compatibility of management measures and broadening stakeholder participation among others. Other presentations were on the ecos ystem surveys conducted by the R/V DR. FRIDTJOF NANSEN in African waters and some of the results obtained, legal aspects of EAF and the development of a Communication Strategy and the GIS component for the EAF-Nansen project. The case studies were from Norway, Australia, Mozambique and the EAF pilot project in the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem area involving Angola, Namibia and South Africa. The opportunities that the EAF-Nansen project offers as building blocks to putting EAF into p ractice were outlined. There was an observation that the human dimension aspects of the EAF-Nansen project are relatively weak and the need for greater involvement of economists in the project was highlighted. It was suggested that political support is required to realize the benefits to be gained from implementation of the new management approach.

    The Consultation on a collaborative programme to assess and monitor climate-related changes in marine ecosystems in tropical/subtropical regions and in the high seas using the research vessel “Dr Fridtjof Nansen” was held at the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Paris on 5 and 6 September 2012. The Consultation was held within the framework of the EAF-Nansen project (Strengthening the Knowledge Base for and Implementing an Ecosystem Approach to Marine Fisheries in Developing Countries) and was attended by a total of 19 participants, representing six UN agencies, and four national institutions. Dr Wendy Watson-Wright, Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO opened the consultation. The principal objective of the consultation was to discuss the possible components of the new EAF-Nansen project and the involvement of partners other than FAO and IMR, espe cially other UN Agencies. The project is expected to contribute to answering questions in relation to climate change and impact on the oceans. It is intended to set baselines and develop a system to monitor marine ecosystems in change as a result of climate variability and other drivers of change such as fisheries and pollution, in close cooperation with relevant on-going processes.
