Fishing for Coherence

Proceedings of the Workshop on Policy Coherence for Development in Fisheries

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.



Discussant's Note on Perspectives on Fisheries Access Agreements

Civil Societies' Views

I am very grateful to the OECD and Chair for the opportunity to put some questions from another member of civil society.

My role here was defined for me this morning by George Carner and Lori Ridgeway to put pressure on governments and by the Workshop to provoke a discussion with some questions. I will therefore ask questions with 4 areas: the Viking approach; the environment and development interface; access and subsidies; RFMOs.
