Strategy to Promote and Strengthen Environmental NGOs Stakeholder Participation and Public Awareness of OFM Issues
The Global Environment Facilitiy (GEF) is providing further assistance to the Pacific Islands Oceanic Fisheries Management (OFM) Project to support Pacific small island developing States (SIDS) efforts as they participate in the setting up and initial period of operation of the new fisheries commission that is at the centre of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries (WCPF) Convention. Pacific SIDS are reforming, realigning, restructuring and strengthening their national fisheries laws, policies, institutions and programmes in order to take up the new opportunities which the WCPF Convention creates and to discharge the new responsibilities which the Convention requires of them.
