Improving fisheries food security and sustainable livelihoods for Pacific Island communities

Executive summary

The Coastal Fisheries Governance Project aims at strengthening governance structures and processes for effective management of coastal fisheries and aquaculture, both at national and subnational level. It specifically focuses on supporting Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) in developing legislation and policy and in improving monitoring, control, surveillance and enforcement (MCS&E).

The project provides technical assistance and training to SPC members upon request, and includes an awareness raising component to promote compliance with rules and regulations. It also offers one-year positions for Pacific Island Junior Professionals, as well as opportunities for PICT governments to send officials on short-term attachment with SPC.

As a regional organization, SPC provides the technical and expert inputs and assistance to support government action at the forefront of sustainable management of coastal fisheries and aquaculture in the Pacific.



Goal

Food security and livelihoods in Pacific Island countries are improved through skilled staff and communities managing and enforcing robust policies and legislation for sustainable coastal fisheries and aquaculture.
