Stages 3 & 4: action plans and implementation
From the collective definition of improvement actions…
To improve the gaps identified during Stage 2, action plans were developed in Stage 3. There were collectively elaborated with the fisheries’ stakeholders (fishermen and their representatives, scientists, administrations, marine parks managers, NGOs). The action plan of a fishery includes :
– a list of improvement actions to achieve the requirements of the MSC Fisheries Standard,
– a suggested leader with potential partners for each action,
– a timetable detailing the yearly milestones to carry out efficiently each action.
… to the implementation of Fisheries Improvement Projects
Those action plans aim to act as roadmaps for the stakeholders to ensure the long-term sustainability of each fishery. Stage 4 of Medfish project aims to support stakeholders in the first steps of the actions plans’ implementation. For each engaged fishery, specific workshops are being held for the stakeholders to take the lead on the actions and initiate a dynamic by identifiying the prioritary actions to implement in short-term.
