The overall objective of the workshop is to support the development of the International Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries (SSF Guidelines) by providing inputs and advice, both with regard to good policies and practices in the region and in respect of overall principles and contents and to provide comments on the current Zero Draft of the SSF Guidelines.

Discussions at the workshop will be forward looking and address implementation issues. The SSF Guidelines are intended to become an integral part of ongoing governance and development processes in support of small-scale fisheries. Accordingly, the workshop will promote cross-linkages between the SSF Guidelines and the policies and actions required in the Caribbean region.
