The discussions put emphasis on the critical involvement of the local FARMCs in fisheries governance, and the equally-important task of the regional FARMC coordinators to, in turn, strengthen and empower them.
The creation of the FARMC has been one of the great breakthroughs in fisheries governance in the Philippines, as it functions as a consultative forum on various issues, concerns and opportunities in the fisheries sector. The recommendations of the FARMC serve as valuable inputs to the planning processes for programs that are geared towards increased fisheries production and sustainable management of the country’s aquatic ecosystem.
