ABSTRACT
The Regional Workshop to Assess the Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector Education, Training and Research Needs in Central Asia was organized within the framework of the Central Asia Regional Programme for Fisheries and Aquaculture Development (FishDev-Central Asia), fi nanced by the FAO -Turkey Partnership Programme (FTPP). The workshop took place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan from 12 to 14 January 2010. The workshop was hosted by the Institute of Zoology of the Uzbek Academy of Sciences. The workshop was attended by 35 participants, representing Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department and the FAO Subregional Offi ce for Central Asia. The objectives of the workshop were three-fold: 1) To identify research, development, education and training needs of the Central Asian countries based on country overviews submitted for the workshop and the country replies to the questionnaire comprising a list of priority areas for research and training/ education; 2) To carry out a sector-wide regional assessment/synthesis and comparative analysis of the situation in fi sheries and aquaculture research, education and training with the aim of providing insights for relevant stakeholders; and 3) To draft inputs for a regional fi sheries and aquaculture research, education and training programme for the sector, to be carried out by FishDev-Central Asia and other programs and interested partners. The Workshop recognized that the current institutional capacity in fi sheries and aquaculture research, development and training in the Central Asian region is not suffi cient to support a growth in fi shery production. Priority research and training/education needs were identifi ed based on country responses to a survey questionnaire. The analysis of the country responses to the survey indicated that the establishment of an institutional structure for improvement of education, training and research in fi sheries and aquaculture can be achieved through collaboration at regional level, with clear and comprehensive long-tem targets that are formulated, implemented and monitored by the committed stakeholders. The workshop concluded with some recommendations for further actions towards improvement of national and regional capacity in fi sheries and aquaculture education, training and research.
