The projects listed in this section are defined in order to achieve FCWC’s 2011-2020 Strategic Plan's objectives. The objectives of the 2011-2020 Strategic plan are as follows:
Rebuild and maintain robust fisheries resources through policy reforms, cooperative regulatory planning, good governance and improvements in institutions;
Develop and implement appropriate management frameworks that ensure fisheries resources are harvested sustainably, improved intraregional and international trade of fish and fishery products and maximum economic and social benefits are obtained from the fisheries;
Develop the capacity of Members’ small scale fishers and other operators to create sustainable livelihoods for their people from the sustainable harvest, processing and marketing of their fisheries resources;
Enhance national capabilities for efficient, cost effective and sustainable fisheries monitoring, control and surveillance, and establishing mechanisms for effective regional cooperation in MCS and enforcement to stop illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the West Central Gulf of Guinea;
Strengthen cooperative research and ensure that resource related decisions are based on sound knowledge, scientific methodology and best information available;
Ensure the effective implementation of the Committee’s work through results based management, improved communication, and better financial, human and knowledge management systems and tools (organizational or functional goal).
