Description of Project:
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and its international partners have been key participants in the international response to large-scale disasters around the globe that impact the livelihoods of those engaged in capture fisheries and aquaculture. Following a number of major disasters in recent years, FAO decided to assemble guidance based on the lessons learned and the overall concept of “building back better”. The Fisheries and Aquaculture Emergency Response Guidance (‘the Guidance’) consolidated the best practice in disaster response and recovery for fisheries and aquaculture and in turn helps to ensure that disaster response and recovery for fisheries and aquaculture is consistent with the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.
Poseidon participated in a workshop experts as part of the preparation of the Guidance document, provided a background thematic paper on fisheries and aquaclture policy and management, and made inputs to the Guidance document.
