FileFAO 2014 - The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 06, 2014 11:51 AM
This new edition of The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture highlights the significant role that fisheries and aquaculture plays in eliminating hunger, promoting health and reducing poverty. Never before have people consumed so much fish or depended so greatly on the sector for their well-being. Fish is extremely nutritious – a vital source of protein and essential nutrients, especially for many poorer members of our global community. Fisheries and aquaculture is a source not just of health but also of wealth. Employment in the sector has grown faster than the world’s population. The sector provides jobs to tens of millions and supports the livelihoods of hundreds of millions. Fish continues to be one of the most-traded food commodities worldwide. It is especially important for developing countries, sometimes worth half the total value of their traded commodities.

FileReport from the Strategic planning meeting for the Global Socioeconomic Monitoring Initiative for Coastal Management by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 27, 2014 10:24 AM
The Global Socioeconomic Monitoring Initiative (SocMon/SEM Pasifika) has been in existence for over ten years. For any organization including a network of volunteers such as this initiative, it was felt that the time was right for taking a moment for introspection, reflecting on the past, examining the present realities and planning for the future. With this in mind, and based on the results from a survey of SocMon regional coordinators, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency’s (NOAA) Coral Reef Conservation Program, GCRMN, Reef Rainforest Fund and implementing partner University of the West Indies Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) facilitated a meeting of SocMon Regional Coordinators and other partners that was held at NOAA’s Headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA.
