FISH MED NET highlights partner meetings and develops a public/private partnership strategy in its third newsletter!
This third newsletter brings you the latest updates on the FISH MED NET project's progress, meetings, and the implementation of tools to help small-scale fisheries structures diversify and sustain their activities.
The partner Halieus presented the FISH MED NET project at the Fit4Blue event organised in Cesenatico on 27 March 2022, together with the fisheries research cooperative MARE. In this way, FISH MED NET has strengthened its synergies with the Fit4Blue project (co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme) which has developed innovative training materials for fishing tourism dedicated to fishermen and fishermen trainers.
In this newsletter, you will also find information about the first round tables organised in the target countries (France, Palestine, Tunisia) in November and December 2021. During these meetings, representatives from the public and private sectors of the fisheries sector were invited to present and discuss the common concept of public-private partnerships (PPPs) as an important institutional mechanism for the sustainable and inclusive development of the fisheries sector. A willingness to engage in an overhaul of the PPP regulatory framework which is not adapted to artisanal fisheries was also highlighted.
The FISH MED NET project is working relentlessly for the diversification of fishing activities, follow us on social networks to keep up to date with the project and its partners!
