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.



Policy Coherence in Fisheries and Aquaculture

Possibilities and Constraints

This paper will identify and discuss various issues related to policy coherence in fisheries and aquaculture. It is written as a commentary on and in dialogue with OECD’s earlier scoping paper on the same issue (OECD 2005), and tries to apply and validate some of the categories and recommended research strategies of that OECD paper.
