Adapting to climate change: the ecosystem approach to fisheries and aquaculture in the Near East and North Africa region

The FAO/WorldFish Center Workshop on Adapting to Climate Change: the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Near East and North Africa took place in November, 2009 to identify and address the impacts created by climate change in the region, and how the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) and Aquaculture (EAA) can be utilized for the management and adaptation of fisheries and aquaculture in the face of these impacts. The workshop was structured through working group sessions divided into three main topic areas, namely: a) identifying climate change impacts on fisheries and aquaculture; b) identifying adaptation/ management strategies for priority impacts/issues; and c) understanding regional and sub-regional capacities for the implementation of adaptation strategies.
