  • Years:

    from 2014 to 2015
  • Project description :

    The project would help to inform government and industry groups on aspects of the World Trade Organisation Technical Barriers to Trade (WTO TBT) Agreement that address eco-labelling schemes, and how Pacific governments could reform existing policy, regulations and institutional framework in order to support the development and use of ecolabels.

    The overall objective of the project was to promote the development and implementation of eco-labelling schemes to support proper access of environmentally efficient fish products from the Pacific countries to regional, European and global markets.

    The project was to benefit 5 countries in the West Central Pacific region, Vanuatu the project initiator, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu. It was designed to assess prospects and potential impacts of the adoption of eco-labelling schemes in the fish sector in Vanuatu and in the Pacific region, and to raise awareness among key national and regional stakeholders through two field missions.

    There were two expected results:

    Result 1: Assessed trade opportunities and enabling conditions for the development of Eco-labelling schemes in the fishery sector in the Pacific region; and

    Result 2: Raised awareness amongst government ministries, Quality improvement (QI) institutions, private sector institutions and key stakeholders on the benefits of eco-labelling schemes in the fishery sectors in the Pacific region

  • Project description :

    The study (the regional overview) and the ex ante evaluations were carried out within the specific contract n° 6 of the framework contract MARE/2011/01 ‘Evaluation and impact assessment activities for DG MARE’ Lot 3: ‘Retrospective and prospective evaluations on the international dimension of the common fisheries policy (CFP)’. The Commission sees these studies as a tool for improving the quality and coherence of the policy development process. Also, independent evaluations to conclude new protocols to Fisheries Partnership Agreements (FPA) between the EU and third countries constitute a legal requirement of the EU.

    The regional overview of the fisheries sector in the Western Central Pacific included providing basic information of fishing activities in the Western Pacific especially the activities of the EU fleet, analysing the supply chain of tuna, tuna-liked species and associated species caught by EU tuna fishing vessels in the Pacific ocean and in the waters under the jurisdiction of the Pacific countries. This contract contributed also in delivering clear findings, conclusions and recommendations to prepare the Commission whether to negotiate on behalf of the EU protocols to FPAs with Cook Islands and with Tuvalu.

    The regional overview and the ex ante evaluation for ‘Cook Islands’ are available on DG MARE’s website, the ex ante report for ‘Tuvalu’ is not available to the public.

    Services provided by the consortium: assessing national policies and fisheries and aquaculture policies, evaluating international development, fish stock assessments, evaluating fisheries management mechanisms, analysing fishing and landing activities especially tuna, tuna-like species and associated species, studying market and trade of fish products and evaluating fisheries arrangements, ex ante evaluations of potential future fisheries agreements between the EU and Tuvalu and Cook.

  • Project description :

    The aim of this framework contract is to assist DG MARE with carrying out its evaluation-related activities, including impact assessment, in order to provide a reliable and objective assessment of how efficient and effective activities have been (retrospective evaluations) or are expected to be (prospective evaluations, including impact assessment). Upon requests of the DG MARE, the consortium led by COFREPECHE ranked first during the tender stage is contacted first to propose a team and a budget to carry out the evaluation of the international dimension of the common fisheries policy (CFP). Should the offer comply with the DG MARE expectations, the specific contract is assigned to the consortium.

    An analysis of the dynamics of the European Union (EU) fleet operating outside European waters through Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements (SFPA), is crucial to the assessment and renewal of current protocols, to the development of strategies aimed at reactivating dormant agreements and to enter new ones. The analysis is also useful to improve the EU’s contributions as members of Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMOs).

    The 24 countries covered have been:

    • Atlantic Ocean: Mauritania, Senegal, Cape Verde, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Sao Tome and Principe, Greenland, Gabon; Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea and Ghana;
    • Indian Ocean: Comoros (twice), Madagascar, Seychelles, Tanzania and Kenya, Mauritius;
    • Pacific Ocean: Tuvalu, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands and Kiribati.

    The consortium also conducted the analysis of the fisheries of tropical tuna and associated species in the three oceans (Indian Ocean, Eastern Atlantic and Southwest Pacific Ocean) in 2012 and 2013 (3 separated studies) and an economic and Financial analysis of the EU tuna fleet outside EU waters (2014).
