The Expert Seminar on Traditional Knowledge and Indigenous Peoples’ Fisheries in the Arctic Region will take place in FAO Headquarters (Rome) on Semptember 23 and 24. It will bring together Indigenous experts, fishers, researchers and other stakeholders from the region to share perspectives and exchange experiences on traditional knowledge and Indigenous peoples’ fisheries in the Arctic region. The anticipated outcomes of the Seminar include elements that could guide and support Indigenous peoples’ fisheries policy, taking into consideration FAO’s Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication, which stress elements of food security, governance, management and interculturalism.

The Seminar is jointly organized by the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, the FAO Indigenous Peoples Team, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland and the Government of Canada as a follow-up activity to the successful High-Level Expert Seminar on Indigenous Food Systems, held in Rome from 7 to 9 November 2018.

Strategically, the Expert Seminar on Traditional Knowledge and Indigenous Peoples’ Fisheries in the Arctic Region will be anchored by the FAO Blue Growth Initiative, a major area of work for the Organization that aims to balance the sustainable management of aquatic resources with economic and social benefits for indigenous peoples.
