Annex III - List of IFS Grants for Research on Aquaculture, 1974-77

The meeting noted that governments and aid-giving agencies have not yet given enough priority to aquaculture and everything possible should be done to get the importance of this sector fully recognized. It is essential to inform policy makers of the potential contribution of aquaculture to the protein food supply of the world during the next two decades. Compilation and dissemination of information on successful aquaculture projects in an appropriate form would be of considerable value in this regard. Services of a capable technical writer capable of describing the results of projects in lay-man's language would be necessary for this purpose. It was mentioned that the IDRC Aquaculture Mission report lists a number of successful projects in Asia, based on which suitable write-ups may be prepared. FAO, in cooperation with USAID, should take the initiative in this regard.

It was recognized that the present meeting, the first one held to discuss aid programmes in aquaculture, was very useful for the exchange of views and information. A free flow of information between multilateral and bilateral donors could greatly contribute to better utilization of available aid resources. Further meetings of this type with greater participation of donor agencies should be considered, possibly in conjunction with COFI or FAO regional fishery body meetings. Meantime, available relevant information on approved and pipeline aid projects should be compiled by the Aquaculture Development and Coordination Programme (ADCP) and distributed as regular issuances to the agencies concerned. The meeting noted that there may be differences in policies between aid agencies regarding release of information on pipeline or even on-going projects. While all efforts should be made to achieve completeness in the coverage of projects, even incomplete information would be of value.

The meeting was not able to discuss the details of the information to be collected but suggested that a small group may be asked to prepare a suitable questionnaire. This group could assist in determining the format and frequency of the issuances to be prepared for distribution.

The meeting did not attempt to negotiate the funding or implementation of specific projects, but the organization of aquaculture research on a regional basis received some special attention. Based on the accounts of different initiatives in this regard, it was agreed that discussions among donors concerned would be most valuable in developing a rational and harmonized approach. The UNDP representative was requested to explore the possibility of a unified approach by bilateral and multilateral donors to provide broad-scale financial support for aquaculture development.
