Workshop

Working papers

In October 2003, the Support unit for International Fisheries and Aquatic Research (SIFAR) organised a 'Workshop and Exchange of Views on Fiscal Reforms for Fisheries: To Promote Growth, Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Management'. This took place in the context of a wider OECD-DAC ENVIRONET initiative aimed at examining issues related to environmental fiscal reform (EFR) for sustainable development and poverty reduction.

This Key Sheet is the first of six summary documents on fiscal reform in fisheries based on the outcomes of the Workshop. The purpose of this Key Sheet is to present an overview of the workshop conclusions and recommendations, and to suggest some ways in which these conclusions might be taken forward.
