Description:

The EAF-Nansen Programme "Supporting the Application of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management considering Climate and Pollution Impacts" is an initiative to support the implementation of the ecosystem approach in the management of marine fisheries. The aim is to promote sustainable utilization of marine living resources and improved protection of the marine environment. The program is executed by FAO in close collaboration with the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) of Bergen, Norway and funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad). In partnership with research institutions in partner countries and regions, provide the knowledge base for the sustainable management of fisheries in the face of increasing fishing pressure, climate variability and change, pollution and other anthropogenic stressors. Supporting fisheries management institutions in partner countries and regions to improve fisheries policy and management in line with an ecosystem approach to fisheries, including taking into consideration the risks and opportunities related to climate and other environmental variability and change. Developing institutional and human capacity for fisheries research and management, including the promotion of gender equality and effective participation of women in all programme activities.
