Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS): Enhancing the Contribution of Fisheries Sector to Ending Hunger and Malnutrition in West Africa Region

  1. 1. ECOWAP « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE…» Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS): Enhancing the contribution of fisheries sector to ending hunger and malnutrition in West Africa Region SIDIBE Aboubacar, PhD Senior Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy Officer ECOWAS Commission, Abuja, Nigeria Accelerating the End of Hunger and Malnutrition. A Global Event November 28-30, Bangkok Side Event: Learning from FIRST EU-FAO Policy Assistance for Ending Hunger and Malnutrition
  2. 2. « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE …» ECOWAP Context : Fisheries and Aquaculture in West Africa ➢ Annual fish production is estimated at nearly 3 million tons with a very large disparity between the countries of the region. ➢ Fish is the main source of animal protein available and accessible for the majority of 355 millions persons in West Africa (over 60% of households rely on fish for their animal protein and micronutrient needs) ➢ The different estimates would indicate an average annual consumption of 14 kg per inhabitant with significant inequalities between countries. ➢ The sector is very importance in the region: ▪ For Small-Scale Fisheries (more than 70% of the total production) ▪ For poverty reduction (six millions direct & indirect jobs creation). The 15 Member States of ECOWAS
  3. 3. « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE …» ECOWAP ➢ Policy incoherence which affect the ability of the sector to make a positive contribution to FSN and poverty reduction (i.e. commercial objective versus industrial fishing impact, lack social protection, etc.) ➢ Very weak coordination and lack of effective collaboration in the programs and projects actions for FSN and Fisheries & Aquaculture; and weak human and institutional capacities at national and regional level. ➢ Absence of a Regional Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy focused on FSN to improve the contribution of the sector to the FSN of the populations. ➢ The main consequence of these “défaillances” is the poor investments in fisheries and aquaculture sector (e.g. investments do not lead improved value chain process to FSN, weak monitoring of resource flows and progress, etc.) Context : Key challenges/bottlenecks need to be addressed in the fisheries sector to improve its contribution to food security and nutrition (FSN).  The objective of FIRST Programme is to create an enabling environment for the development and implementation of the ECOWAS Integrated and Coordinated Regional Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy to enhance the contribution of the sector to food security and nutrition and poverty reduction in West Africa.
  4. 4. « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE …» ECOWAP Funding of the fisheries and aquaculture sector in the National Agriculture Investment Plan for Food Security & Nutrition (NAIP-FSN) in some ECOWAS member States Country Level of funding* Comments Cabo Verde High 49,6 % (including crops, livestock and forest) of the total cost of the NAIP-FSN (2010-2015) Benin Average 26,9% of the total cost of the NAIP-FSN (2017-2021) Burkina Faso Weak 0,48% of the total cost of the NAIP-FSN (2016-2020) Ghana Weak 3,3% of total budget of Medium-Term Agriculture Sector Investment Plan (METASIP, 2009 – 2015) Guinea Weak 5,6% of the total cost of the NAIP-FSN (2018 – 2025) Nigeria Weak 1,33% of the total cost of the NAIP-FSN (2018 – 2020) Côte d’Ivoire Absent Fisheries sector is mentioned in the NAIP-FSN but without any provisional budget Senegal No available NAIP-FSN not yet finalized *High: >50% ; Average : between 10% & 50% ; Weak < 10%
  5. 5. « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE …» ECOWAP Main achievements to date and related lessons learnt at National level ➢ Review/Analysis of the Contribution of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Policies and Strategies to Food and Nutrition Security of populations in 13 countries West Africa. ➢ Identification of priority actions in the implementation of existing national policies and strategies to improve the availability, accessibility, use and sustainability of fish and fishery products for the populations.
  6. 6. « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE …» ECOWAP Main achievements to date and related lessons learnt at Regional level ➢ Established mechanism for coordinating actions and investments in fisheries for FSN and reviewing progress: ▪ Adoption of the mandate and composition of the Regional Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture of ECOWAS (Frame supporting the process of elaboration and implementation of the Regional Policy for Fisheries and Aquaculture focus on FSN). ▪ Official establishment of the Regional Platform of Non State Actors in the Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector in West Africa and Mauritania (WANSAFA).
  7. 7. « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE …» ECOWAP Main achievements to date and related lessons learnt at Regional level ➢ Consensus on the necessary Strategical axes to achieve the FNS goal in the ECOWAS Regional Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy: ▪ Strengthening the fish production of small-scale fisheries and aquaculture mainly oriented for feeding local populations in West Africa ▪ Development of the value chain activities and intra- regional trade of fish and fishes products Some international instruments are guiding the regional and country work: ➢ Code Of Conduct For Responsible Fisheries (CCRF), ➢ The Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (VGSSF), ➢ Policy Framework & Reform Strategy for Fisheries and Aquaculture in Africa (PFRS-AU), ➢ Fisheries Policy Guidance Notes developed by FIRST Programme (EU-FAO).
  8. 8. « …ECOWAS OF PEOPLE …» ECOWAP In Conclusion: What else should be done to ensure greater effectiveness of investissment in Fisheries & Aquaculture in ECOWAS region to accelerate progress on ending hunger and malnutrition ➢ Strengthening human capacity at the regional and national levels in terms of integrating food and nutrition security concerns into the sustainable development of fisheries and aquaculture, and vice versa. ➢ Mobilizing and strengthening public and private investments in fisheries and aquaculture for food and nutrition security. ➢ Make information and knowledge available on political economy issues that may hinder the implementation of regional fisheries and aquaculture policy in West Africa.
