HRD for fisheries management: Implications of integrating social, legal and environmental aspects
An examination is made of social, legal and environmental aspects of human resource development (HRD) in fisheries management. Particular reference is made to the outcomes and recommendations of the ASEAN-SEAFDEC Regional Technical Consultation on HRD held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in June 2004. It was concluded that HRD in fisheries management should be developed at all levels, considering: legislation, law and regulations; social and economics; and, environment. In developing HRD in fisheries management, in-country coordination among agencies concerned both at the national level (fisheries, environment, forestry and other authorities as well as and other relevant institutions) and at the local level (local administrative organizations) should be promoted. However, HRD activities should not only focus on different levels and sections of government-related functions but also on other stakeholders such as those engaged in fisheries and fisheries related activities, the private sector, NGOs, processing facilities and industries, aquatic resources and the aquatic environment.
