    Legislating for the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) is complex, due to the holistic nature of the EAF involving multiple factors that underpin the social, economic, environmental, and institutional aspects of fisheries sustainability. These factors include ecosystems integration, risks, inter-sectoral collaboration, research, participatory processes, monitoring, control, surveillance, and enforcement, among others. To assess how the EAF is being implemented through national policy and legal frameworks, FAO developed A diagnostic tool for implementing an ecosystem approach to fisheries through national policy and legal frameworks. The present legal report on the EAF used the diagnostic tool to assess the alignment of selected policy and legal instruments of the United Republic of Tanzania with the EAF. This assessment analysed the extent to which 82 EAF legal requirements, which are considered the minimum standards in legislating for the EAF, are reflected in Tanzania's policies and legislation relevant to the fisheries sector of the country and other relevant sectors (such as environment, wildlife, ecosystems, and maritime affairs). Based on this preliminary diagnosis, gaps were identified in the assessed instruments, and recommendations were made for improving the implementation of the EAF. This report was elaborated following a participatory approach with the involvement of the national competent authorities of the United Republic of Tanzania. Drafted in July 2021, the report was submitted to the national authorities of the United Republic of Tanzania in October 2021 and, based in the additional information provided, was further revised in May 2022. The Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries endorsed this EAF Legal Report of the United Republic of Tanzania in October 2022.

Drafted in July 2021, the report was submitted to the national authorities of Cabo Verde in October 2021, further revised in view of the adoption of additional relevant legal instruments by Cabo Verde and the integration of the conclusions and recommendations from the Coastal Fisheries Initiative Report from August 2022. The report was re-submitted to the national authorities in October 2022. The National Directorate of Fisheries and Aquaculture, under the Ministry of the Sea, endorsed this EAF Legal Report of Cabo Verde in October 2022.
