BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT

The Regional Plan of Action for Small-Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea (RPOA-SSF) is a historic political commitment setting out a ten-year roadmap towards the long-term environmental, economic and social sustainability of the sector. It builds on the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines), and sets out the specific principles, objectives and – importantly – concrete actions over nine key thematic areas: scientific research, data, management measures, value chains, participation in decision-making processes, capacity building, decent work, role of women, and climate and environment.

THE SESSION
Within the context of the United Nations International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA 2022), this two-hour session will explore the importance of the RPOA-SSF for small-scale fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea while showcasing initiatives and first hand experiences of the Friends of SSF’s members. The session will take a deep dive into some of topics of the RPOA-SSF and address, for example, participation of small-scale fisheries actors in decision-making processes and capacity building, including the current European stakeholder involvement’s status in the Mediterranean, as well as the role of women in fisheries and actions needed for achieving gender equality.
