Prospectus – FAO fisheries training programme in support of the implementation of international instruments

In 2017, FAO launched its Global Capacity Development Programme to support the implementation of the Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter, and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing (PSMA) and complementary international instruments, regional mechanisms and tools to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. The programme aims to contribute to national, regional and global efforts to prevent, deter and eliminate IUU fishing. For the proper implementation of the programme, FAO developed its fisheries training framework, based on a modular approach, which has been invaluable in harmonizing the courses delivered under the programme. This modular approach also provides flexibility for the creation of new courses to cater for specific needs. This prospectus provides an overview of the modules offered under the FAO fisheries training framework, including a detailed description of each module, its corresponding lectures and expected learning outcomes. Elsewhere, the prospectus provides detailed information on each of the courses currently offered, including their objectives, target participants and overall expected learning outcomes, as well as other relevant information.
