POLICIES FOR DEVELOPING AND MANAGING AQUACULTURE: A DIALOGUE
Policies for aquaculture development and management are not harmonized globally. Different countries, based on their political will and the importance attached to aquaculture, policies differ. Some countries prioritize aquaculture national food and nutrition security, employment, and smallholder income, while some countries prioritize aquaculture as an export commodity and foreign exchange revenue. Some countries have equal impetus to both. Whatever the overarching goal and objective of aquaculture in a national economy, efficient development and management is imperative to achieve that goal and objective. Providing a conducive policy environment, encompassing all relevant and necessary aspects, is therefore vital to national development.
TIIKM will engage several key global figures into a dialogue, to discuss major issues, challenges and opportunities for creating conducive national policy environments which governs efficient and sustainable development sand management of aquaculture.
