Dear Coordinators of CFS-HLPE,
The study on fisheries and aquaculture sectors in terms of sustainability to food security and nutrition completes the Global Strategy for Food Security and Nutrition. Most of the issues on the sector to be addressed have been taking into consideration.
But to sustainably address all the issues that the sector suffers from, it is important to include in the themes of reference a monitoring aspect on the sector. This implies identifying a minimum set of core data to be produced. This will assist policy decisions making towards sustainable development of the sector, including its sustainable contribution to food supply and provide basic data to assess the status of natural fishery resources and ecosystems, so as the impacts of fisheries and aquaculture activities.
Most of the time, censuses are carried on food production and livestock, and indicators are developed on the status of food security and nutrition while fisheries and aquaculture sectors, which also are sources of food, never know these and the few statistics on these sectors rest on the production. The rapid evolution of the sector needs more attention and it is very important to develop indicators for monitoring.
