    This document is the report of the Global Stakeholders’ workshop Entebbe 2016: Advancing a Global Work Programme for FAO on Tenure and Rights-Based Approaches for Fisheries and was produced with the technical and financial support of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The Global Stakeholders’ Workshop was hosted and organized by the Lake Victoria Fisheries Organization (LVFO), which is an institution of the East African Community. The Food and Agriculture Organization ( FAO) of the United Nations provided technical and financial support to Entebbe 2016. The meeting was held at the Imperial Botanical Beach Hotel and Convention Center between the 1st and 4th March 2016 in Entebbe, Uganda. The global workshop followed-up on other events on rights-based approaches for fisheries such as the global forum UserRights 2015 (Siem Reap, Cambodia, March 2015) and the informal think tank Friends of UserRights 2015 (Fiumicino, Italy, October 2015). Next to UserRights 2015 an d Friends of UserRights 2015, Entebbe 2016 took into account the results and information generated by recent consultations supporting the development of the Small-scale Fisheries Guidelines (SSF Guidelines). It specifically addressed issues related to concepts and terminology in fisheries tenure and provided improvements on information and knowledge for improving the global knowledge base on how to improve fisheries tenure on a practical level. The purpose of Entebbe 2016 was to: a) foster a mut ual understanding of the challenges faced by different groups in fisheries communities with regard to rights-based approaches for inland and marine fisheries; b) advance the skeleton global work programme on rights-based approaches in marine and inland fisheries1; and c) review the first part of the document A technical guide to support the implementation of the voluntary guidelines on the responsible governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forests in the context of national food security. T he knowledge gained at Entebbe 2016 was used to summarize the report.

    The Friends of User Rights 2021 – Online Expert Meeting was organized by FAO to seek the participating experts’ inputs on the work done by the FAO Tenure Team since the last Friends of User Rights meeting in 2019 and guide the way forward on FAO’s fisheries tenure work. The expected inputs from the meeting included (1) review and comment on the draft policy brief of tenure and tenure-related definitions, (2) review and comment on the paper on inland fisheries, and (3) recommendations for the way forward, including next steps and additional activities for the development of guidance on how to design and implement appropriate tenure, access and user rights in fisheries. There was broad agreement among participants that FAO should explore different formats for the papers to contribute to and support technical guidance. Regarding the technical guidance, participants provided several outlines and content options that FAO could use in the future.

    This workshop was the second of a series of regional workshops on fisheries tenure and user rights. It aimed to discover regional nuances and specificities of the Latin America and Caribbean area to develop how-to guidance on appropriate tenure systems and rights-based approaches for fisheries. Representatives from both government and non-government sectors attended this workshop. Participants at the workshop presented fisheries tenure and user rights of 11 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Jamaica, Grenada, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama and Uruguay. Participants discussed in plenary three topics: 1) Recognition and allocation of tenure rights and responsibilities; 2) Transfers and other changes to tenure rights; and 3) Administration of tenure. Participants made recommendations for future work, including (1) increasing efforts on securing small-scale fishers rights; and (2) finding solutions on how different sectors can coexist. To do so, participants requested more information and guidance on tenure and user rights in fisheries along with on-the-ground support.
