Informal meeting on the Global Strategic Framework in Support of the Implementation of the SSF Guidelines (SSF-GSF)

11/07/2018 - 11/07/2018 Rome, Italy

During the third day of COFI, an informal meeting on the SSF-GSF took place in FAO Headquarters. In 2016, the FAO Committee on Fisheries welcomed the development a Global Strategic Framework in Support of the SSF Guidelines (SSF-GSF), with the full and effective participation of all regions and in consultation with all small-scale fisheries stakeholders. The proposed vision for the SSF-GSF is to provide a global mechanism for facilitating interaction between COFI Members and interested actors to support the implementation of the SSF Guidelines at all levels.

A zero draft was developed by FAO, working in close collaboration with the IPC Fisheries Working Group, to elaborate on the purpose, role, and structure of the SSF-GSF consisting of Friends of the SSF Guidelines, an Advisory Group, a Knowledge Platform and a Secretariat. The informal meeting brought together these stakeholders to further develop the purpose, role, and structure of the SSF-GSF, as invited by COFI.
