    Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Synthesis for The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture 2019

    The Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Synthesis for The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture summarizes the state of biodiversity for food and agriculture in the region, based largely on information provided in fourteen country reports submitted to FAO as part of the reporting process for the report on The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture. Biodiversity for food and agriculture is the diversity of plants, animals and micro-organisms at genetic, species and ecosystem levels, present in and around crop, livestock, forest and aquatic production systems. It is essential to the structure, functions and processes of these systems, to livelihoods and food security, and to the supply of a wide range of ecosystem services. It has been managed or influenced by farmers, livestock keepers, forest dwellers, fish farmers and fisherfolk for hundreds of generations. The report was originally prepared as supporting documentation for an informal regional consultation on the state of Latin America and the Caribbean’s biodiversity for food and agriculture held in Panama City, Panama, 8 to 10 March 2016. It was later revised based on feedback received from the participants of the informal consultation and on an additional country report. It also discusses the state of efforts to promote the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity for food and agriculture in the region, including through the development of supporting policies, legal frameworks, institutions and capacities.

    The project “Sustainable management of bycatch in Latin America and Caribbean trawl fisheries” was financed by GEF, implemented and executed by FAO. With an overall evaluation rating of Highly Satisfactory, the assessment has identified notable results in strengthening regional collaboration, improving legal frameworks and co-management mechanisms; successful trials of bycatch reduction devices; and building capacity, including of women. The global environment objective (GEO) and the project development objective (PDO) were partially achieved, reflecting the over-ambitiousness of the design. However, the enabling environment created, and the transformational results will contribute towards achievement of these objectives in the long-term. Strategic partnerships and the high level of stakeholder engagement including the private sector contributed to successful delivery. Recommendations include actions to be taken by the project partners and stakeholders to build on the project results to achieve sustainable, long-term impact; thematic areas for follow-up projects; more realistic project objectives and improvement in institutional arrangements and administrative procedures for future projects; sustaining partnerships; enhancing livelihoods and empowerment of women fish workers; and better communication and knowledge management.
