Ecuador and Peru implement project to conserve artisanal fishing sector sustainability

Ecuador and Peru launched the Coastal Fisheries Initiative - Latin America (CFI) in Manta, which includes integrated actions for the management and use of coastal fisheries in an inclusive manner, in artisanal and small-scale fisheries scale. The initiative was structured by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the non-governmental organization Conservation International (CI).

The two organizations signed the respective agreements for the technical and financial implementation of the project, which is valid for 48 months and aims to demonstrate holistic, ecosystem-based management to improve the governance of coastal fisheries in the Southeast Pacific.

In order to consolidate the project in both countries, it will be necessary to implement the following strategies: creation of practice communities with fishers, stakeholders and authorities of both countries, implementation of specific practical tests for seven fisheries and two sites, registration and exchange of experience and lessons learned, between both countries and between IPC participants and the implementation of lessons to improve the existing schemes of fisheries governance or to implement new ones.

The Coastal Fisheries Initiative is an association of six organizations that has been developed and funded within the framework of the GEF to safeguard the world's oceans and the marine environment.
