Feasibility study for an ASEAN General Fisheries Policy 

GTZ - Project Dates:
May 2019 - June 2020

Description of Project:
Feasibility study for development a General Fisheries Policy for ASEAN countries. Relevant national and regional fisheries and aquaculture policies were reviewed to identify commonalities and differences, policy briefs were prepared on EU fisheries policy and other regional policies from non-ASEAN countries to learn lessons and best practice, and baseline environmental economic and social data were reviewed to present a picture of the baseline situation and to consider the need for a General Fisheries Policy. Policy options were then specified representing potential policy of different scope and content (possible topics to be included in the policy), with the options then subjected to multi-criteria analysis to identify a preferred option. Recommendations were also made as to 'next steps' necessary to develop and agree the policy in detail.
