Reinforcing fisheries' governance in Guinea
This project aims to reinforce the fisheries’ governance in Guinea and control IUU fishing activities in its Exclusive Economic Zone.
The 15, 16 and 17 February in Conakry (Guinea), GRID-Arendal in
partnership with TMT, PRCM and the Guinean Ministry of Fisheries,
Aquaculture and Maritime Affairs conducted a series of workshops around
new technologies to combat IUU fishing activities and reinforcement of
the licensing process in the industrial fisheries sector.
Local authorities were highly involved in the event, which also received
strong interest from the various stakeholders. This led to
discussions in support of the design of the next phase, which involves
training and targeted capacity building in 2022.
We thank our partners for this great event and are looking forward to the upcoming activities building on the positive momentum highlighted in this local video coverage.
