ABSTRACT
The Latin America and Caribbean Regional Consultative Meeting was one of three regional consultative workshops carried out as a follow-up to the 2009 inception workshop of the FAO Extrabudgetary Programme on Fisheries and Aquaculture for Poverty Alleviation and Food Security. The workshops built on the outcomes of the Global Conference on Small-scale Fisheries held in Bangkok in October 2008 and referred to the recommendations made by the 26th Session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) in March 2009 with regard to the potential development of an international instrument and programme for Small-scale fisheries. The purpose of the workshops was to provide guidance on the scope and contents of such an international small-scale fisheries instrument and on the possible priorities and implementation modalities for a global assistance programme. It was organized around plenary presentations on key subjects and working group discussions. The workshop agreed that an international instrument on small-scale fisheries and a related programme would be important tools for securing sustainable small-scale fisheries. It recommended that a small-scale fisheries international instrument and assistance programme should be informed by human rights principles and existing instruments relevant to good governance and sustainable development, comprise the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) as a guiding principle for resource management and development, and incorporate Disaster Risk Management (DRM) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) as an integral part considering that DRM is a continuum process, before, during and after a disaster. The instrument should draw upon the available experiences with good governance practices in small-scale fisheries at national, regional and global levels and strengthen mechanisms for information sharing and communication, including by regional and subregional organizations and by associations and networks of fishworkers organizations, both of men and women, and civil society organizations (CSO). The instrument should draw on the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, as well as the international voluntary guidelines that are being developed under the auspices of FAO on land tenure and natural resources. It was recognized that there was a continuing need to promote the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries in small-scale fisheries.
