Fisheries, aquaculture and food security – Annual meeting Norway FAO 8 January 2013

  1. 1. Annual Meeting Norway FAO 8 January 2013
  2. 2. Key messages  Fisheries & aquaculture are critical for food security  Their contribution is often undervalued  Sustainability of fisheries is still a major concern globally  Sustainable aquaculture growth is needed to increase fish production and meet future supply- demand gap
  3. 3. FISH AS FOOD In many parts of the developing world, fish represent the single most important source of animal protein. For 1.5 billion people, fish contributes about 20% of animal protein intake Fish provides an affordable source of significant micro- nutrients, minerals, and essential fatty acids, of special importance in child- development

  5. 5. FI Priorities : Consistent with FAO’s Strategic objectives:  SO1: Contribute to the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition  SO2: Increase and improve provision of goods and services from agriculture, forestry and fisheries in a sustainable manner  SO3 - Livelihoods of rural populations and in particular for women and youth improved through enhanced employment opportunities and conditions, increased access to productive resources and rural services  SO4 - Enable more inclusive and efficient food and agricultural systems at local, national and international levels  SO5 - Increase the resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises And consistent with cross-cutting issues related to:  Governance  Gender
  6. 6. Making the most of quantity, quality and value FOOD CCRF, EA FI’s work
  7. 7. Future Fish Supply and Demand Global food fish supplies in 2011 was around 150 million t Population and consumer demand for fish increasing globally and by 2030, we will require 260 million t of fish Aquaculture growth rate is declining. If this trend continues, the global fish supplies in 2030 will only reach 210 million tonnes - gap of 50 million t To bridge this supply demand gap: 1. Recover depleted/Overexploited fish stocks 2. Reduce post-harvest fish loss and reduce waste 3. Accelerate the rate of growth of sustainable aquaculture
  8. 8. Strengthening FI’s work on key priority areas  Sustainable fisheries  Improved knowledge and governance (EAF-Nansen)  IUU fishing: Port State Measures  Reduction of Fishing Capacity  SSF  ABNJ  Improving collection of Fishery Statistics  Improve post harvest practices  Sustainably increase of aquaculture ClimateChange
  9. 9. Major Challenges for increased aquaculture production 9  Land and water  Cost and energy efficient productivity  Ecosystem impacts  Feeds: Fishmeal, Fish Oil and other ingredients  Biosecurity and health  Climate change  Conducive policy  Technology and knowledge  Finance and investment
  10. 10. Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme - GAAP 10 In order to meet these challenges and to address the issue of bridging the supply and demand gap of fish in the coming decades, and to assist Member Countries in their efforts, FAO is in the process of developing a programme – Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme (GAAP)
  11. 11. GAAP A programme to be implemented by many stakeholders and partners, with FAO leadership. Addressing regional demands and priorities. Reflecting on FAO’s new decentralization policy. Based in different regions and sub-regions. Executed in projects of different scales and scopes at global, regional and/or national levels.
  12. 12. 12Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme Intensification - Asia Regional Sustainable intensification of aquaculture in Asia with focus on social, economic, environmental and climate change aspects
  13. 13. Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme Development - Africa Regional Development of African aquaculture through policy assistance, aquaculture service and technology provision, commercial seed and feed development, and strengthening aquatic biosecurity
  14. 14. 14Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme Diversification - Latin America Regional Sustainable diversification of aquaculture in Latin America through implementation of IMTA and EAA concepts, improving sustainability of tilapia, shrimp and salmon sectors
  15. 15. 15Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme Capacity Development - Central Asia Regional Establishing aquaculture in Central Asia through policy and legal assistance and institutional and human capacity development
  16. 16. 16Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme Support to Europe - Europe Regional Technical assistance for aquaculture production for appropriate countries based on the new EU guidelines on aquaculture development
  17. 17. 17Global Aquaculture Advancement Programme •Sustainable feeds • Investment •Improving knowledge and building capacity at national levels in specific key priority technical areas
  18. 18. Stronger Resource Partnership with Norway? • Create a stronger resource partnership between FI and Norway for complementing and enhancing each other's development efforts towards achieving aquaculture sustainability • Take advantage of Norwegian competence • Stimulate south-south cooperation for reducing poverty and hunger, improving food and nutrition security, increasing income and making lives better for many in need!
