Catalonia participates in the Paris Peace Forum with the innovative experience of fishing and maritime co-management

  • The new fishing governance promoted by the Catalan government is among the six European initiatives of the 100 selected out of the 850 proposals from around the world presented at this year's edition of the event looking for projects to make the world a better place
  • Co-management is based on the full empowerment of the actors and is already a model of reference in the international field for its efficiency in seeking to improve income without increasing the pressure on fishing resources

The Catalan Government has created a unique participatory governance scheme for the seas based on co-management which places people and nature at the centre of decision-making and transfers effective power to sectoral actors, scientists and civil society, in an equality plan with the administration. This new model is known as co-management, and it works very well.

The Catalan proposal for fisheries co-management has been chosen by the Paris Peace Forum 2020 as one of the six European projects among the 100 selected out of the 850 worldwide proposals. The Paris Peace Forum is an event that aims to mobilize international agents interested in collective action. It takes place every year from 11 to 13 November in Paris with the aim of placing global governance at the top of the international agenda.
