[ABNJ Tuna & Biodiversity] Building a Business Case for EMS in Ghana - Executive Summary

The Government of Ghana, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) have formed a partnership under the Common Oceans Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ) Tuna Project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and implemented by FAO to pilot EMS technologies in Ghana. The objective for the project was to support building a business case for EMS in the Ghanaian fleet, including options for financing a permanent implementation of the system. The business case is intended to inform the Ghanaian Government of the capital and recurrent costs of equipment and operations as well as required legislative changes and institutional arrangements necessary to utilize the EMS as an enforcement tool.
