A meeting was held this week with FarFish partners in Dakar, Senegal. The meeting was attended by Case Study representatives from ISRA/CRODT and COREWAM, a representative from the Ministry for Fisheries in Senegal, and representatives from two local fisheries organisations. The FarFish project coordinator, work package leader on capacity development and dissemination, and the director of the United Nations University Fisheries Training Programme were also in attendance.
The primary purpose of the meeting was to review and discuss the availability of data for use in the FarFish project, as well as capacity building opportunities available to CRODT.
The work undertaken at the meeting builds upon the training needs assessment efforts carried out through Work Package 7, as well as efforts throughout the project to gather and analyse data from the case study areas.
