Workshop on the Environment-Fisheries Nexus in the Western Indian Ocean
In September 2022, the NC-SWIOFC Partnership Project and the ACP-MEAs III Programme jointly organized a consultation meeting on the environment-fisheries nexus followed by the 11th session of the SWIOFC Scientific committee. The aim was to identify priority areas of concern and recommend processes that can be used to develop joint policy recommendations and indicators as well as knowledge and information sharing mechanisms while linking policymakers and key stakeholders in the environment and fisheries sectors.
Outputs and recommendations from this first consultation meeting should inform the delivery of activities supporting policy dialogues, collaboration, as well as knowledge and information sharing in the environment-fisheries nexus- regionally and nationally, within the frameworks of the SWIOFC-Nairobi Convention partnership project , the ACP MEAs III Programme (regional marine environment status report), and other closely linked processes.
