Project document: Sustainable Management of Tuna Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation in the Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ)
Category: Tuna & Biodiversity
Type of document: Project documents
This Project, “Sustainable Management of Tuna Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation in the Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction”, is a critical component of the overall GEF supported ABNJ Program “ABNJ Global Sustainable Fisheries Management and Biodiversity Conservation in the Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction”. It offers a unique opportunity for GEF and FAO and their associated partners to fast track the development, management and sustainability of ABNJ fisheries and biodiversity conservation and to make vital and urgently needed progress in strengthening responsible fisheries management and practices in these fisheries. Without the Project, the current inconsistencies in management, high levels of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities and threats to biodiversity from current fishing practices would likely continue with increasingly negative impacts on the tuna stocks and marine biodiversity and with ensuing damage to the wellbeing of the millions of people directly and indirectly dependent on these resources for their livelihoods.
