International Course on Fisheries Governance

12 March 2014

NETHERLANDS - The Centre for Development Innovation, Wageningen UR, is holding a short course on Fisheries governance in 2014 for the seventh time.

The course teaches about fisheries governance and its relationship to fisheries management.

It will also provide new insights on challenges that fisheries governance face, such as IUU fishing, and explore ways to strengthen it.

It provides insights and skills to bring stakeholders in the fisheries system and help them understand each other's perspectives, manage their conflicts and learn together.

The course programme is highly interactive and participants will practice a range of participatory tools and methodologies to real-life cases. For example, a video based tool will be used to assist in the development of a fisheries management plan. You will be challenged and coached to apply the concepts learned to your own professional working situation. 

NFP fellowships available

For this course there is a limited number of NFP Fellowships available for applicants from 50 NFP countries. Please see the Nuffic website for more information, conditions and registration.


The course will be held 3 - 21 November 2014 and the deadline for applications is 22 September.
