Title: INTRODUCTION TO THE SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF CASPIAN FISHERIES PROJECT SMCFP funded by EUTACIS by D


1
INTRODUCTION TO THE SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF
CASPIAN FISHERIES PROJECT (SMCFP) funded by
EU-TACIS by Dr Nick Willoughby Team Leader
2
  • WHAT IS IT?
  • A project to help sustainable fisheries
    management in the Caspian
  • Duration Started Jun 2004.
  • Complete in June 2006
  • Based Baku, Azerbaijan
  • Working area all Caspian littoral states
    AZE, IRAN, KAZ, RUS, TUR
  • Funding Agency EU-TACIS

3
WHAT IS THE PROJECT SUPPOSED TO DO? TARGETS
1-4 1. To strengthen national capacity for
regional fisheries research management 2. To
help develop regional guidelines for recovery of
sturgeon and other stocks 3. To assist with
developing regulatory systems for national and
regional fisheries management 4. Provide
equipment for Azerbaijan Kazakhstan
4
THE PLAN FOR THE PROJECT IS 1. to move
from a base of constructive data sharing and
regional sturgeon management (Workshop 1 Baku,
Oct 2004) 2. through the discussion and
agreement of ideas which might help create the
right environment for sturgeon rehabilitation
policies (Workshop 2 Ramsar, Oct 2005) and 3.
to help with the development of regionally
acceptable and biologically valid management
policies for all Caspian sturgeon species
(Workshop 3 perhaps Almaty, Feb 2006).
5
We do not expect to answer any of the regional
fisheries questions in full, but if we can
provide part of an answer which is later used by
regional scientists or managers to improve
regional or national management of the Caspian
fisheries, then this project will have
contributed something valuable to the region as a
whole.

HOW WELL ARE WE DOING AGAINST PROJECT TARGETS? A
project monitoring review by EU monitors showed
the project design needed some clarification.
This has been addressed by writing a new and
clearer logical framework for the project. The
logical framewotrk now allows quantification of
targets - e.g. numbers of regional personnel
trained etc.
12
Target 1 NATIONAL TRAINING WORKSHOPS FOR STOCK
ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT The targets for these
workshops (35 participants in total) have already
been exceeded Azerbaijan (Baku) May 2005 10
persons Kazakhstan (Almaty) June 2005 15
persons Iran (Tehran) Oct 2005 15 persons
13
Target 2 DEVELOPMENT OF REGIONAL STRATEGIC
FISHERIES MANAGEMENT PLAN This is being
developed, with considerable progress being made
during the Ramsar Workshop The results so far
will be described by Dr Andy Payne later in this
meeting
14
Target 3 LEGAL AND INSTITUTIONAL ISSUES IN
CASPIAN FISHERIES DEVELOPMENT One of the working
groups held during the Ramsar Workshop last week
asked interested scientists to consider legal and
institutional issues. Not one person signed up
for this group! The project is unable to add
significantly to the Ramsar participants view
that laws are present but the will or capacity to
implement them is limited and to the FAO
comments on regional institutional difficulties
(see later presentations)
15
Target 4 EQUIPMENT PROVISION The project expects
to provide Euro 100,000 worth of equipment,
divided equally between Azerbaijan and
Kazakhstan The tenders were advertised in June
2005 No bids were received in either country The
tenders will be re-advertised in November
