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. 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.
