ACP Fish II

The regional meeting of West African states is pursuing the ACP Fish II Programme, the overall objective of which is to promote fair and sustainable management of fishing grounds with a view to reducing poverty and increasing food security in the ACP countries. The press release containing this information explains that the programme, which was launched in June 2009, will extend over a period of four and a half years ending in November 2013. It emphasizes the fact that ACP Fish II is a decentralised programme and will be managed on a regional basis by Regional Facilitation Units (RFUs) located in Senegal, Gabon, Uganda, Mozambique, Belize and the Solomon Islands, each one of which will serve a number of ACP countries. The same source reveals that the RFU in Senegal will coordinate programme initiatives and activities in the following countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Ivory Coast, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo. At the Dakar meeting the objectives of the programme and the means available to support fishing policies and implementation strategies are to be presented. At the same meeting, the source continues, “the representatives of the fisheries administrations and the regional fisheries organisations will be asked to identify existing needs and the types of activities to be supported by the programme in order to meet those needs”.
