The Chatham House International Forum on Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (IUU) brings together leading policymakers, researchers, industry representatives and civil society groups from across the world to discuss the latest initiatives, regulations and research in the areas of fisheries governance and trade in illegal fish products.
The 12th International Forum was originally scheduled to take place from 19-20 March 2020 at the Chatham House in London but was postponed due to COVID-19. Thus, they have decided to transform the 2020 conference into a series of webinars, delivering the discussions virtually over the course of a week from 18-22 May 2020.
For WorldFish, our very own Pip Cohen and Editruth Lukanga will be attending as keynote speakers. So don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity and register in advance to secure your spots.
