The International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF) has expressed pleasure in noting that small-scale fisheries issues are integrated into almost all agenda items of the ongoing 33rd Session of the Committee on Fisheries (COFI 33) of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

ICSF stated this position in an intervention on agenda item 8.2 (Small-scale and Artisanal Fisheries Governance) of COFI 33.

The 33rd Session of COFI, being held in Rome during 9-13 July 2018, aims to review the status of the world’s fisheries and aquaculture and establish global agreements for effective fisheries management.

Welcoming the agenda item COFI/2018/7 and the complementary and additional information provided in COFI/2018/Inf. 17, 18 and 19, ICSF appreciated the clear and concise information provided in these agenda items and information papers on a diverse range of activities undertaken in relation to the SSF Guidelines in various parts of the world in meaningful partnership with different actors in the realms of awareness raising, strengthening the science policy interface, empowering stakeholders, and supporting implementation.

ICSF also welcomed the SSF Guidelines-Global Strategic Framework, developed in consultation with small-scale fisheries
