The workshop should cover the legal, technical, operational and management aspects allowing an efficient detection of IUU fishing occuring among the authorised fleets.

The selected expert will most notably:

Present the best state-of-the-art MCS systems worldwide, with a rough indication of their cost; Supervise a KeFS team of expert, to study the current MCS system and procedures implemented by KeFS; Together with that team, evaluate how Kenya practice compares to foreign best practice for 1) best stewardship of the resource and 2) detection of IUU fishing, both domestic and foreign; Prepare recommendations with the team; Present the conclusions and the recommendations to KeFS DG and top management at the end of the workshop.

The location of the workshop will be Nairobi or Mombasa (TBC). 

Description du projet ou contexte

The project “Go Blue - Strengthened, effective and integrated maritime law enforcement capacity and capabilities to protect the maritime domain and its sustainable development” (outcome 3) financed by the European Union Delegation in Kenya is implemented by Expertise France. The project aims to contribute to the development of the blue economy in Kenya through support to Kenya’s maritime security administrations in the next 3 years.

The Kenyan government established the Kenya Fisheries Service (KeFS), under the Fisheries Management and Development Act no. 35 of 2016, to be responsible for the conservation, management and development of Kenya's fisheries resources. Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) of Kenya fisheries is an essential governance tool for the sound management of the fish resource; Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing hampers such management.

In this framework, Go Blue will assist in the training of already experienced KeFS officers, to update them on tools and techniques making the best use of MCS to detect IUU fishing.
