About this book

This book explains why and how the reform of fisheries subsidies has become one of the most concrete and potentially successful international efforts to achieve global environmental, economic and developmental policy coherence. It describes the history and current status of the discussions at the WTO, drawing on UNEP's key documents and reflecting on the major issues.

A CD-ROM contains full-text versions of all the most important source material used in the publication.

'The valuable work reflected in this publication helps illuminate a clear path towards solutions to the fisheries subsidies challenge. It is time for the international community to harvest the lessons learnt and take decisive action to save not only the resource, but also marine ecosystems upon which millions of people depend for nutrition and employment.' Achim Steiner, Executive Director, UNEP
