This brochure is intended to provide guidance and proposed next steps for the development of a Sustainable Fisheries Fund (SFF) for the Western Central Atlantic Fishery Commission (WECAFC). The WECAFC member countries and FAO are currently [as of year of publishing in 2019] working on the establishment of a regional fisheries management organization (RFMO) in the Western Central Atlantic region, and this document focuses on a potential funding concept, which would act as an intermediary for deploying capital to support the transition to sustainable fisheries in the region. It provides a short overview of the SFF and the next steps in the development process of the SFF concept for consideration by relevant governments and investors.
