Some 500 million USD are spent annually on fisheries development projects. But fisheries access agreements and trade policies are sometimes applied in ways that dampen developing countries' ability to benefit fully from their rich marine resources. Also, many development projects do not pay sufficient regard to the sustainability issues that are a key for the future of the fishing sector. This publication, a compilation of papers from the Workshop on Policy Coherence for Development in Fisheries, addresses these issues.Click to Access:

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all participants on behalf of myself and in my capacity as chairperson of the Development Centre governing board which is also contributing to the coherence work of the OECD. It is a true pleasure for me to open this workshop. It represents a concrete expression of the increased attention policy coherence is getting within OECD and in the Member states.
