2022 – International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture

The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2022 to be the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA 2022).

During this year, a range of initiatives and activities will help raise awareness, globally as well as locally, about the importance of small-scale artisanal fisheries and aquaculture for food security and nutrition, poverty eradication, and sustainable resource use. FAO will serve as lead agency for IYAFA 2022, in close collaboration with relevant organizations of the United Nations and other partners.

Stressing the importance of small-scale artisanal fisheries and aquaculture is also a step on the way towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
