Within the framework of the Biodev2030 project, and with the objective of reversing the loss of biodiversity by 2030, the presentation and validation of the voluntary commitments for the shrimp fishing sector took place on April 20, during a technical meeting.
These commitments focus on the need to strengthen fisheries surveillance by improving the number of surveillance and control staff and supporting the formalization of the Community Surveillance Committee. In addition, the commitment concerns the restoration of mangroves for the public sector. As for the private sector, represented by the GAPCM, it is to consolidate information on the commitments of its members in the specifications, to achieve a positive communication on the efforts made and improve the modalities of implementation of these commitments. Was recalled in the speeches of the spokeswoman of the GAPCM during her intervention, the commitment to support the small fishers by the allocation of regulated materials as well as the granting of trainings to their profits. For the representative of the Association of small-scale fishers, the commitments are translated by the improvement of the working tools of the members and the reinforcement of the surveillance against the bad fishing practices. It is also noted their participation in the restoration of mangroves.
Tiana Ramahaleo of WWF Madagascar mentioned that the activities corresponding to the action plans resulting from these commitments will be supported in order to achieve the objectives for 2030 for the benefit of nature and humanity. This national initiative led by the government of Madagascar is supported by the French Development Agency, Expertise France with the technical support of IUCN and WWF.
