Sustainable aquaculture and aquatic resources management

NACA work plan 2015+

Published: 18/5/2015 | 2451 views

This document provides a brief introduction to NACA and its rolling work plan for 2015+. The research and development mandate of NACA is addressed through five interlinked thematic work programmes that support sustainable aquaculture and aquatic resource management, policy development and inter-governmental cooperation in the region. These are:

  • Sustainable farming systems
  • Aquatic animal health
  • Genetics and Biodiversity
  • Food Safety, quality and certification
  • Emerging Global Issues

Three additional cross-cutting work programmes facilitate and support implementation of the thematic work programmes:

  • Education and training
  • Gender
  • Information and communications

The programmes are implemented through the development of projects and activities by the Secretariat in collaboration with participating research centres, member governments and other partners.

Individual projects draw heavily on the personnel and facilities of participating centres. Projects are essentially implemented by the centres with the Secretariat acting as a coordinating body.

NACA also works in close cooperation with FAO, international donor agencies and other regional and international organisations in implementing the work plan.
