FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department’s programme to address climate change


The FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, along with the Global Partnership Climate, Fisheries and Aquaculture (PaCFA), support raising awareness on these issues to promote a coordinated response from the fisheries and aquaculture sector to climate change, notably through a strategic approach to maintain or enhance the health and resilience of global oceans and waters, and strengthening the capacity of dependent people and communities, integrating these closely into broader development strategies.

The goal of the programme is to enable people, communities and states to meet their social and development objectives effectively while responding to the additional challenges imposed by climate change on fisheries and aquaculture. The purpose of the programme is to support member states and partners to mitigate and adapt effectively to the impacts of climate change for fisheries, aquaculture and aquatic ecosystems, through policy development, knowledge development and exchange, normative outputs, practical demonstration, and capacity building.
