Description of Project:
This project and related report presented the outcome of a prospective evaluation (ex ante) of a possible Protocol to a Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement (SFPA) between the European Union (EU) and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. The evaluation was designed to help the EU decide whether to give the European Commission a mandate to negotiate an SFPA and its implementing Protocol with Equatorial Guinea. The evaluation was conducted from July to November 2016 through consultation with the key stakeholders concerned with such a protocol: ship-owners, administrations of EU Member States and Equatorial Guinea, and the civil society (non-governmental organizations, NGOs).
