2nd AQUAMED Multi-Stakeholder Platform (MSHP) Meeting

Istanbul, 20th – 21st May 2013

More than 50 stakeholders from industry, government, NGO and research sectors from 13 Mediterranean countries (Algeria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey), along with 20 members and observers from the AQUAMED project, met in Istanbul on 20-21 May 2013 for the 2nd Open Multi-Stakeholder Meeting for Mediterranean Aquaculture.

The meeting was designed as a facilitated and interactive event. The stakeholders were asked contribute to designing the Plan of Action for Mediterranean aquaculture, based on the constraints for the sector identified within the project, and to identify possible resources to sustain the operation of the platform after the end of the project. The platform was proposed as a subsidiary body of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM-FAO) during its 37th session. It was also suggested that the platform could be used as an advisory body for other organisations involved in Mediterranean aquaculture.
