A roadmap for managing Vanuatu’s coastal fisheries in the future

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Wednesday, 20 March 2019, marked a significant milestone for the management and development of coastal fisheries in the Republic of Vanuatu. It was the date on which the ‘Vanuatu National Roadmap for Coastal Fisheries: 2019–2030’ was approved by the Minister responsible for Fisheries. The approval came after a final stakeholder consultation workshop in Port Vila at the end of 2018. The signing and launching of the ‘roadmap’ culminated after a year’s worth of work that started in November 2017, and involved a series of planning, design and review workshops with the Vanuatu Fisheries Department’s staff and partners. The roadmap will guide the management and development activities along Vanuatu’s coastlines.
