    PREPARATION OF THIS DOCUMENT

    This is the report of the Regional Project Development Inception Workshop on Building

    Resilience in Benguela Fisheries and Aquaculture, held in Cape Town, South Africa, from

    3 to 5 July 2013. The Benguela Current Commission and the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture

    Department convened the workshop in support of the project development phase for the

    project “Enhancing Climate Change Resilience in the Benguela Current Fisheries System”

    under the Least Developed Countries Fund and the Special Climate change Fund

    administered by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

    The report was prepared by Cassandra De Young, Fisheries Planning Analyst, Policy and

    Economics Division, FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, Rome, Italy, and Kevern

    Cochrane, Rhodes University, South Africa. Support for this workshop was provided by the

    Government of Japan under the project “Fisheries management and marine conservation

    within a changing ecosystem context (GCP/INT/253/JPN)”, by the Government of Norway

    under the project “Climate Change, Fisheries and Aquaculture: testing a suite of methods for

    understanding vulnerability, improving adaptability and enabling mitigation

    (GCP/GLO/322/NOR)”, and by the GEF.

    Fisheries and Aquaculture Report No. 1065. Rome. 54 pp.

    ABSTRACT

    The objectives of the workshop were to bring together relevant stakeholders of the Benguela

    Large Marine Ecosystem to: (i) introduce the overall project and, more specifically, the

    project development phase; (ii) identify issues of transboundary concern that could be

    addressed in the project (from impacts to vulnerabilities, from past to future adaptation

    actions); (iii) clarify project preparation steps, identify partners, champions and resources

    during the preparation and, eventually, project implementation phases; and (iv) initiate

    discussion on the proposed national workshops to support the project development.
