FAO Publishes Guide on Implementing Improved Tenure Governance in FisheriesTools
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Fisheries and Aquaculture Department has published a guide that explains the characteristics of the fisheries sector and provides technical guidance.
This technical guide assists in the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) with regard to fisheries in marine and inland waters.
Its purpose is to contribute to the achievement of the VGGT objectives in respect of the improvement of governance of tenure in fisheries. Special attention is given to small-scale fisheries considering the sector’s particular importance to food security and nutrition, poverty eradication, equitable development and sustainable resource utilization.
