The challenge of preserving the health of the world’s oceans. Session 2 on Fisheries and ocean governance
Serge Garcia was invited to participate to this high level Plenary Panel session part of the IUCN World Conservation Congress. The aim of this 40 minutes’ session was to enable a broader strategic discussion and horizon scanning on priority topics regarding fisheries. It was supposed to allow the panellists to engage on selected topics, giving them a chance to comment and eventually express their preference, providing IUCN directions for development of the 2017-2020 IUCN Programme and policy and the Hawaii Commitments. The moderator of this debate, unfortunately, managed it in such a way that the time left for panellist was sufficient for three rather minor questions and no time at all was left with any “dialogue” with the audience.
