Pan-African Workshop on Strengthening Organizational Structures of Non-State Structures of Non-State Actors for Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in Africa

The workshop aims to strengthen non-state actor (NSA) platforms and their representation at regional and global levels for sustainable small-scale fisheries in Africa. Bringing together 40 participants—including non-state actors, other small-scale fisheries representatives and stakeholders, and regional organizations and partners—the workshop provides an opportunity for attendees to exchange experiences and discuss capacity development needs.

Expected outputs of the workshop include:

  • consolidation of the sub-regional NSA platforms including preparation of draft work plans
  • establishment of a pan-African NSA platform
  • recommendations for the development of the SSF-GSF with regard to regional linkages and representation
  • identification of priority research areas for small-scale fisheries
  • experiences shared on challenges and opportunities with regard to non-state actor representation, particularly small-scale fisheries representatives, in policy and decision-making processes at all levels.

The workshop is organized by WorldFish and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in collaboration with the AU Inter-African Bureau of Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) and hosted by the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
