Volume 1. Fisheries Subsidies and Overfishing: Towards a Structured Discussion, by Gareth Porter

This paper aims to help meet the need for further analysis on the interaction between subsidies, over-capacity and overfishing, to guide progress towards a potential reform of fisheries policies worldwide. It creates a better understanding, quantification and classification of the economic, environmental, and related social effects of subsidies to the fisheries sector, and explores a variety of approaches to develop policy reforms for the sustainable management of fisheries.

Volume 2. Fisheries Subsidies and Marine Resources Management: Lessons learned from Studies in Argentina and Senegal

The Argentine and Senegalese studies presented in this report were conducted within the framework of two broader UNEP Country Projects that involved the collaboration of a number of individuals and organizations. Each of these projects aimed to assess the environmental and related social and economic effects of trade liberalization and trade-related policies, as well as to develop policy response packages that contribute to mitigating the negative impacts and enhancing the positive impacts identified through the assessments.
