Jamaica hosts ACP regional fisheries management workshop

The ACP Fish II Programme enters its second phase concentrating efforts on boosting fisheries management in the Caribbean. In an effort to increase knowledge sharing at the regional level, Jamaica is hosting the Third Regional Programme Monitoring and Training Workshop over four days since on November 15, 2011.

Participants from 15 CARIFORUM countries at the highest levels of Government and other fisheries interest are gathering with a view to highlight the objectives and benefits of the Caribbean Community Common Fisheries Policy. They are meeting to analyse the operations of the ACP Fish II Programme implementation and to participate in training on the preparation of Terms of Reference within the European Development Fund (EDF) Project Cycle.

The four-day workshop forms part of a larger global project to strengthen fisheries management, improve food security and alleviate poverty in 78 African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) member states. “The ACP Fish II Programme is a four and a half year, EUR€30.0M programme funded by the European Union through the EDF. It has been formulated to design and develop planning and management capacities in ACP countries,” indicated Sandra Grant, ACP Fish II Programme Regional Manager for the Caribbean. […]

The Programme will result in improved legislation and management documents with Caribbean countries also being able to boost their surveillance systems, said Ms Grant.
