This document contains the report of the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Aquaculture Network for Africa (ANAF), which was held in Entebbe, Uganda, from 4 to 6 December 2012.

The meeting was attended by the ANAF National Focal Points from nine member countries, two international consultants, two representatives from NEPAD, a representative from ACP FISH II (Eastern Africa), a consultant from the FAO Regional Office for Africa and an FAO Aquaculture Officer. The meeting discussed the steps for the establishment and management of National Aquaculture Advisory Group (NAAG) and National Aquaculture Farmer Associations (NAFA) in ANAF Member Countries. The participants adopted a strategy to turn ANAF into a functional Intergovernmental Organization and they discussed and endorsed the ANAF work plan for 2013. During the session, three task forces were established and elaborated their terms of references for the preparation of three distinguished reports. These reports will describe the measures that ANAF member countries shall take in order to turn the ANAF into an Intergovernmental Organization.
