Fisheries Subsidies Video Series
As part of its work to support a meaningful WTO agreement to discipline harmful fisheries subsidies, the
International Institute for Sustainable Development has produced a set of six videos to summarize the
state of play and the key issues to be resolved across the WTO fisheries subsidies negotiations.
The video series start by presenting some of the key basic concepts that come up in the negotiations (video 1), before providing an overview of the progress achieved and the key questions that will need to be answered by negotiators regarding scope and definitions (video 2), the three main disciplines currently being discussed by WTO members (videos 3-5)—i.e. on IUU fishing, overfished stocks, and overfishing and overcapacity—and legal and institutional issues (video 6).
These videos have been designed to provide all interested stakeholders with a short, clear summary of the state of play in WTO negotiations, and to help delegations to seek focused input from capitals to support their engagement in the next phase of WTO talks.
These webinars were produced with the support of the Pew Charitable Trusts and the UK Department for International Development DFID.
