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.



Coherence through Co-operation

The Challenge for Achievement of Policy Coherence for Fisheries Development in the Pacific

Policy coherence for fisheries development and its relationship to fisheries management is discussed in the opening section of this paper, before a more fulsome description of the particular challenges and barriers to achieving policy coherence in the Pacific. The paper then discusses efforts in New Zealand to improve policy coherence for fisheries development in the Pacific through the development of a whole of government strategy for New Zealand’s involvement in Pacific fisheries issues.
