Essential EAFM Toolkit
This is the Toolkit for the Essential EAFM training course. The Toolkit contains descriptions and practical advice on the different types of tools with are used in the development of Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management Planning. The Toolkit is divided into two sections:
- The People Toolkit includes a selection of tools that are useful throughout the EAFM process. EAFM requires a high level of stakeholder participation and involvement, from the planning, through implementation, to monitoring and evaluation. Appropriate use of these “people skills” tools will ensure enhanced consultation and involvement of all parties in the EAFM process.
- The Technical Toolkit includes a selection of techniques, tools and resources that are useful throughout the EAFM process.
The Toolkit is a background document to be used in conjunction with the other course books (Handbook, Workbook, and Action Plan Booklet).
The following resources can be used by trainers and participants as support materials for the Essential EAFM course. This list is by no means exhaustive and will be added to over time.
The EAF-net website has been developed to facilitate access to the information and resources that are available at FAO on the application of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF). This includes background information about EAF, an EAF toolbox to assist with EAF management planning and implementation, plus links to all the various EAF projects being undertaken by FAO.
