Database of support policies to fisheries - The Fisheries Support Estimate (FSE)
by Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) (Intergovernmental organization)
Participating countries provide information annually on their policies that provide support to the fisheries sector. This information is compiled and classified in a database that allows for tracking the scale and composition of support over time. Such a database is a necessary element of SDG 14.6, as it allows for measuring progress towards the goal of eliminating subsidies that contribute to overcapacity, overfishing or IUU fishing by 2020.
14.6
By 2020, prohibit certain forms of fisheries subsidies which contribute to overcapacity and overfishing, eliminate subsidies that contribute to illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and refrain from introducing new such subsidies, recognizing that appropriate and effective special and differential treatment for developing and least developed countries should be an integral part of the World Trade Organization fisheries subsidies negotiation
Type of commitment
  • information relating to harmful subsidies
Quantification
  • The FSE database contains information from 31 countries and inventoried USD 7 billion in budgetary support in 2015.
