Oak foundation2007WWF International22,654,050Reforming Europe’s Fishing Fleets and Implementing the European Common Fisheries Policy To support the implementation of the European Common Fisheries Policy by: advocating the adoption of the principle of ecosystem-based management of fisheries in the planned EU Marine Strategy Directive and Maritime Policy; supporting the drafting and implementation of species recovery and management plans; reducing illegal fishing, discards and bycatch; establishing protected areas; influencing major seafood processors to source only sustainably produced fish; and demonstrating the good use of fisheries subsidies.
Oak foundation2010WWF International11,000,000Ending Subsidies that Drive Overfishing To eliminate subsidies that drive overfishing while encouraging sustainable fisheries management. The project aims to: produce concrete steps towards effective fisheries subsidies reform in five leading developing countries/regions, through policy-relevant research, partnership development, organised stakeholder dialogue, pilot project planning, and strategically-targeted communications; solidify support for a “high ambition” outcome to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) fisheries subsidies negotiations among influential developing countries; and create strong momentum in key capitals towards strong and effective WTO rules.
Oak foundation2010WWF International24,378,318Common Fisheries Policy Reform To achieve three specific legislative reforms of the Common Fisheries Policy to secure the adoption, implementation and compliance of fisheries management plans. These are needed to attain the longterm goal of restoring European fish stocks to a level that ensures their resilience, sustainability and profitability. The reforms are: 1) mandatory long-term management plans for all EU commercial fisheries by 2015; 2) a decentralised governance/comanagement structure that links fishing rights with appropriate responsibilities and accountability; and 3) a mandate for coherence between EU fisheries policies and fleet activities inside and outside EU waters.
The Tubney Charitable trust2010WWF International2832,000520,000Towards Common Fisheries Policy Reform 2010-2012 WWF’s overall objective for this initiative is to enact three legislative reforms to the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy. In each case, WWF’s goal is to have their reform included in the 2011 legislative proposal by the Council (the White Paper), and then have it adopted in the final legislation by the Council of Minsters in 2012.
