Directives volontaires visant à assurer la durabilité de la pêche artisanale

The Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication


The SSF Guidelines are the result of a bottom-up participatory development process based on the recommendations of the Twenty-ninth and Thirtieth Sessions of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI). Between 2010 and 2013, FAO facilitated a global process that involved more than 4 000 representatives of governments, small-scale fishers, fish workers and their organizations, researchers, development partners and other relevant stakeholders from more than 120 countries in 6 regional and more than 20 civil-society organization-led national consultative meetings. The outcomes of these consultations provided the basis for the work of an FAO Technical Consultation, which met in May 2013 and February 2014 to agree on the final text. The endorsement of the SSF Guidelines by the Thirty-first Session of COFI in June 2014 represents a major achievement towards ensuring secure and sustainable small-scale fisheries.
