Global Sustainable Supply Chains for Marine Commodities (GMC) brochure
Marine resources play an essential role in human well being and social and economic development worldwide. The global increase in demand for seafood coupled with an increase of the number of fisheries that are poorly managed, overfished, or negatively affected by Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, poses a significant threat to the sustainability of fish stocks, to ocean biodiversity, and to the livelihoods of fishermen and women across the world. The United Nations Development Programme´s (UNDP) inter-regional initiative Global Sustainable Supply Chains for Marine Commodities (GMC) is led by the fisheries and planning authorities of Costa Rica, Ecuador, Indonesia and Philippines, and financed by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF). This initiative establishes multi-stakeholder dialogue round tables (platforms) for the development and implementation of sustainable fisheries management policy (National Action Plans).
