Response to an emergency situation in fisheries and aquaculture presents a range of complex issues that can be difficult to understand in the absence of appropriate training analytical tools and lessons from experience. The Fisheries and aquaculture emergency response guidance was developed at the request of FAO partners in a series of consultation meetings that were held between 2009 and 2012 in relation to small scale fisheries. The guidance draws on best practice and lessons learned during response to disasters that have affected fisheries and aquaculture sector. The guidance was published in 2014 and a first Training of Trainers (TOT) course will be rolled in March 23-28 2015. Applications are welcomed from English speakers worldwide. Selection criteria are included in the attached document. Deadline for applications is February 27th, 2015.
