FAO Fisheries is pleased to announce that The Rome Dialogue on Social Responsibility in Fisheries and Aquaculture Value Chains, will take place at the Abitart Hotel in Rome, from 19-20 June 2019. 

Rome Dialogue objectives

The Rome Dialogue will focus on measures to promote human and labour rights in fisheries and aquaculture value chains in order to encourage the industry to implement better practices on social responsibility in those value chains.
