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.



Trade Issues and Policy Coherence in Fisheries

A Developing Country Perspective on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Standards and Other Non-Tariff Barriers

There is a need to examine critically the coherence of trade and fisheries policies towards sanitary and phytosanitary standards (SPS) on one hand, and development-oriented policies (such as those towards poverty reduction in developing countries) on the other hand, with a view to addressing inherent incoherencies.
