Rerouting Fishery Subsidies Towards Traceability

Hosted by:

Event Overview

This COP15 side event will explain why traceability is a profitable investment for the seafood supply chain, and propose that the funding for such investment could be partially covered by the re-routing of harmful fishery subsidies.

The session will address:

  • How and why corporates should implement traceability systems across supply chains where it is already feasible to do so.

  • How governments could ensure that more seafood supply chains are traceable by relocating so-called harmful fishery subsidies towards incentives supporting traceability investments, and by introducing comprehensive traceability-related regulation?
