Indaba Hotel & Conference Centre, Midrand, South Africa
The first Stakeholder Consultation Meeting jointly organised by NEPAD and the FAO in support of the implementation of the FAO Strategy for Fisheries and Aquaculture in Africa will take place on 10-12 May 2011 in Midrand, South Africa. It will bring together participants from regional fisheries organisations, regional economic communities, donors as well as civil society. The three-day event will consist of a one-day plenary session and two days of consultation in working groups.
The aim is to strengthen and accelerate the fisheries and aquaculture sector in terms of their governance, management and adaptability to climate change. By doing this, the participants will address the rising importance of fisheries in meeting the MDG objectives ; and the sector’s crucial role in economic development and poverty alleviation in Africa, in line with the CAADP targets.
The objectives of the meeting are :
To participate and contribute to fisheries and programmes and closely link to existing and emerging regional and sub-regional fisheries organisations ;
To identify a new programme to support the implementation of the FAO strategy for fisheries and aquaculture in Africa ;
To support the development and implementation of a Comprehensive African Fisheries Reform Strategy promoted by the Partnership for African Fishereis (PAF) under the NEPAD Action Plan for the Development of African Fisheries and Aquaculture — as was recommended by the recent Conference of African Ministers of Fishereis & Aquaculture (CAMFA).
The FAO Strategy for Fisheries & Aquaculture in Africa is funded by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
