This project was initiated by FAO in order to address how the ecosystem approach to fisheries and aquaculture can be used to address the impacts of climate change to fisheries and aquaculture in the Near East and North Africa Region (RNEA). This document provides suggestions and recommendations made by the experts regarding the adoption of the ecosystem approach to fisheries and aquaculture that are considered to be important in helping adapt to climate change in the region. It also contains five technical review papers (climate change, the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries, the ecosystem-based approach to aquaculture, climate change and fisheries, and climate change and aquaculture) and four subregional reviews (Mauritania/Morocco, Mediterranean, Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman) prepared as background material to the workshop. The report was prepared by the workshop secretariat.
