FFA is coordinating subregional workshops so that all its 17 members have information and informal discussions to prepare for their participation in the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) and at its next meeting in December in French Polynesia. The workshops are an important part of FFA’s ongoing efforts to increase national capacity and strengthen regional solidarity so that member countries can manage their fisheries for the benefit of people today and for future generations.
This year there will be 2 subregional workshops:
Group 1 – Australia, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Indonesia and Philippines
15-19 June 2009, FFA Conference Centre, Honiara
Group 2 – Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Samoa, Tokelau, Tonga and Tuvalu
13-17 July 2009, Hexagon Hotel, Nadi, Fiji
