The Expert Meeting on Climate Change Implications for Mediterranean and Black Sea Fisheries, was held at the GFCM, Rome, 4–6 December 2017, with the objective to provide technical support the development of an adaptation strategy to cope with the potential effects of climate change on fisheries, in the framework of the GFCM Mid-term strategy (2017–2020) towards the sustainability of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea Fisheries. The meeting was attended by experts working on Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries and experts engaged in the assessment of projected impacts of climate change to the Mediterranean and Black Seas. The meeting reviewed the existing information on the observed and expected impacts of climate change on Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries, as well as the most relevant elements on vulnerability and the existing and potential adaptation measures. Agreement was reached on the need to enhance the knowledge on the implications of climate change to fisheries in the region and to identify options to cope with the expected impacts. In this regard, the meeting elaborated elements of a methodology to assess risks and vulnerabilities of fisheries to climate change. A roadmap for the review, endorsement and application of the methodology was elaborated aiming at contributing to the elaboration of regional climate change adaptation strategy in the mid-term.

The 2018 edition of The State of Mediterranean and Black Sea Fisheries (SoMFi 2018), the flagship publication of the GFCM, provides a comprehensive overview of regional and subregional trends in Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries. Bringing together data and indicators submitted by GFCM contracting parties and cooperating non- contracting parties on stock status, national catches, fleet and socio-economic aspects as well as information obtained from other sources, SoMFi 2018 aims to provide objective, reliable and up-to-date information to a wide audience and support decision-making in fisheries. SoMFi 2018 is divided into eight chapters. The first analyses the current composition of the fishing fleet, including information on fleet capacity, vessel types and age classes. Next comes a detailed breakdown of overall capture fishery production with comparisons of the latest figures to data from previous years, highlighting significant changes and trends. The report then looks at what this means for regional economies and for the livelihoods of the people who depend on the fisheries sector. As small-scale fisheries make up a large majority of Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries, they receive special focus. SoMFi 2018 also provides the most detailed assessment yet of the state of fishery resources in the region. It shows the current status of the stocks, including those most at risk from overfishing, and looks at related issues like discards and incidental catches of vulnerable species. The report then highlights GFCM’s strategic efforts to build long-term sustainability, as it works with its stakeholders to sustainably manage fisheries and improve coastal livelihoods across the region. Finally, SoMFi 2018 concludes with an overview of the important role fisheries have to play in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, maintaining healthy ecosystems and productive fisheries.

The Scientific Advisory Committee on Fisheries (SAC) of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) held its twentieth session in Tangiers, Morocco, from 26 to 29 June 2018. The session was attended by delegates from 14 Mediterranean contracting parties, seven observers, representatives of the FAO regional projects, the GFCM Secretariat and invited experts. The Committee reviewed the work carried out during the 2017–2018 intersession, including within its four subregional subsidiary bodies (Subregional Committee for the Adriatic Sea, Subregional Committee for the Central Mediterranean, Subregional Committee for the Eastern Mediterranean and Subregional Committee for the Western Mediterranean) which all met during the intersession. In relation to the mid-term strategy (2017–2020) towards the sustainability of Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries, the Committee welcomed the progress in multiple priority activities as well as cooperation with partners. Issues in relation to fishery data quality, data collection needs and methodologies, estimation and quantification of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and formulation of advice on the status of fisheries were discussed. Recalling the need to improve knowledge on small-scale fisheries in the the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, the work underway to test a characterization matrix as well as the forthcoming Regional Plan of Action for Small-Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and Black Sea were tackled. Furthermore, the Committee formulated advice on the following aspects: i) overall status of Mediterranean stocks; ii) management of European eel; iii) management of deep-sea fisheries and identification of VMEs and iv) roadmap towards a network of essential fish habitats. In line with the subregional approach and based on the conclusions of the four subregional committees, the SAC also provided specific advice for each subregion. In particular, attention was paid to: i) blackspot seabream in the western Mediterranean; ii) demersal fisheries in the Strait of Sicily; iii) small pelagic fisheries in the Adriatic Sea; iv) demersal fisheries in the Adriatic Sea, including the monitoring of the Jabuka/Pomo Pit fisheries restricted area; and v) deep-water red shrimps in the central and eastern Mediterranean. In addition, the Committee also endorsed un updated table of priority species by subregion. Finally, the Committee agreed upon its work plan for 2018–2020 and elected its new Bureau.

Discards – the part of the catch that is not retained on board, which may include target species or any other (commercial and non-commercial) species that are returned at sea dead or alive – usually result in a reduction of harvesting opportunities and may have negative consequences on the stocks, ecosystems and the marine environment. In the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, studies on discards only cover a small portion of the total fishing activities and discard rates are often poorly estimated or totally unknown. Information is lacking for many types of fishing gear, countries and GFCM subregions, and most available studies only cover relatively short periods and small areas. Discards therefore represent a major source of uncertainty about the actual fishing mortality rates of stocks. These knowledge gaps highlight the need to expand discard monitoring programmes and standardize practices, so to assess discards appropriately and address their important impacts. This publication and the methodology discussed herein aim to provide a framework for the development and implementation of an efficient, standardized data collection and monitoring system for discards through on-board observations, questionnaires at landing sites and self-sampling activities. It ensures minimum common standards for the collection of discards data and allows for repeatability and comparisons among fisheries across the region, thus offering a harmonized basis of knowledge, information and evidence for decision-making.

La subalimentación en América Latina y el Caribe aumentó en el último período de medición. Luego de varios años de estancamiento, en el año 2016, alrededor de 42,5 millones de personas no cuentan con la cantidad suficiente de alimentos para cubrir sus necesidades calóricas diarias, lo que significa un aumento de 2,4 millones de personas en comparación al año anterior. De no llevar a cabo acciones necesarias para la superación conjunta del hambre y la malnutrición, América Latina y el Caribe no dará cumplimiento a la meta de erradicar el hambre y la malnutrición en 2030, comprometida en los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. Si bien la desnutrición ha disminuido, el sobrepeso y la obesidad continúan siendo problemas de salud importantes para América Latina y el Caribe. La prevalencia de obesidad en adultos va en aumento y el sobrepeso en menores de 5 años afecta al 7% de los niños de América Latina y el Caribe, ubicándose por encima del 6% de los niños con sobrepeso en el mundo. Si bien América Latina y el Caribe produce alimentos suficientes para cubrir las necesidades de su población, esto no asegura una alimentación sana y nutritiva. Es necesario crear sistemas alimentarios sostenibles y sensibles a la nutrición para proporcionar alimentos variados, de buena calidad nutricional e inocuos que permitan acabar con el hambre y toda forma de malnutrición. Tanto el estancamiento del crecimiento económico de América Latina y el Caribe, como la menor velocidad de las dinámicas de reducción de la pobreza y pobreza extrema en los últimos años, han dificultado la erradicación del hambre y la malnutrición. Del mismo modo, la persistencia de la desigualdad del ingreso pone presiones en el acceso a los alimentos y, por consiguiente, en la seguridad alimentaria y nutricional. Se observan importantes diferencias en el acceso a servicios básicos en América Latina y el Caribe, tanto entre países como al interior de ellos. Las zonas rurales y la población de menores ingresos tienen un acceso significativamente menor a agua potable y saneamiento en América Latina y el Caribe.

This edition of the World Economic Outlook explores how a dramatic escalation of the financial crisis in September 2008 provoked an unprecedented contraction of activity and trade, despite active policy responses. It presents economic projections for 2009 and 2010, and also looks beyond the current crisis, considering factors that will shape the landscape of the global economy over the medium term, as businesses and households seek to repair the damage. The analysis also outlines the difficult policy challenges presented by the overwhelming imperative to take all steps necessary to restore financial stability and revive the global economy, and the longer-run need for national actions to be mutually supporting. The first of two analytical chapters, "What Kind of Economic Recovery?" explores the shape of the eventual recovery. The second, "The Transmission of Financial Stress from Advanced to Emerging and Developing Economies," focuses on the role of external financial linkages and financial stress in transmitting economic shocks.

Un fascinante recorrido por una tierra sin humanos. Un canto al poder de regeneración de la naturaleza. ¿Qué pasaría en la Tierra si desapareciera el ser humano? Este libro contesta con rigor esta fascinante pregunta y explica cómo nuestras enormes infraestructuras se hundirían; cuánto tardarían las principales ciudades en reforestarse y las llanuras africanas en recuperar el esplendor de su fauna; por qué algunas de las construcciones más antiguas podrían ser las últimas en desaparecer y cuáles de nuestros objetos quedarían inmortalizados como fósiles. Partículas de plástico indestructibles, gatos domésticos que se convierten en depredadores de éxito, plagas urbanas -como las ratas o las cucarachas- que se extinguen y estatuas de bronce que perviven milenios son solo algunos de los elementos que el lector se encontrará en este apasionante recorrido por un mundo tan familiar como extraño. Un libro que toma especial relevancia en el Día mundial del medioambiente. Reseñas: «Fascinante, agudo, profundamente inteligente... Un libro muy importante para una especie que está jugando con su propio destino.» James Howard Kunstler «Uno de los mayores experimentos mentales de nuestro tiempo, un hito fabuloso del reportaje imaginario.» Bill McKibben «Grandiosamente entretenido.» Time «Prodigioso e impresionante.» The New York Times
