Report of the Regional Technical Workshop on a Spatial Planning Development Programme for Marine Capture Fisheries and Aquaculture. Cairo, the Arab Republic of Egypt, 25–27 November 2012.
FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Report No. 1039. Rome. 127 pp.

The Regional Technical Workshop on a Spatial Planning Development Programme for Marine Capture Fisheries and Aquaculture, held in Cairo, the Arab Republic of Egypt, from 25 to 27 November 2012, was attended by 12 delegates from 6 member countries of the Regional Commission for Fisheries (RECOFI) and FAO. The workshop achieved four objectives: (i) it created awareness and initiated capacity building through a technical seminar on spatial planning for marine capture fisheries and aquaculture – it received feedback from each RECOFI country presentation on recent and relevant spatial planning projects; (ii) it presented the results and analysis of the "RECOFI Spatial Planning Development Programme for Marine Capture Fisheries and Aquaculture Questionnaire Survey"; (iii) it prepared and finalized a "Proposal for a Spatial Planning Development Programme for Marine Capture Fisheries and Aquaculture" in RECOFI member countries based on the survey outcomes, workshop deliberations and brainstorming; and (iv) it identified potential pilot projects on marine capture fisheries and aquaculture, which were later elaborated in detail by international consultants after the workshop and in consultation with workshop participants.
