The Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (CCRF) supports and is highly
instrumental to effective fisheries
management and sustainable aquaculture development, contributing to the conservation of aquatic biodiversity and the
health and productivity of ecosystems and their fishery resources and fisheries production. The impleme
ntation of the
CCRF is based on the holistic and multidisciplinary approach to fisheries and aquaculture systems including the FAO
-
promoted Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) and to Ecosystem Approach to Aquaculture (EAA). This
Operational Output aims t
o improving national and regional policy development and implementation of the CCRF and
its technical guidelines in the RNE region, with particular attention to shared stock fisheries management, small
-
scale
fisheries and aquaculture sustainable developmen
t, IUU fishing and EAF/EAA implementation also as means to cope
with emerging issues.

Forests in the arid zones are an extremely important but undervalued resource. They have sign
ificant roles in
biodiversity conservation, providing habitat and essential ecosystem goods (such as fodder for livestock, fuel wood,
wood, medicines and herbs, tradeable goods such as resins, gums and cork) as well as services (such as soil
stabilization,

water, erosion and desertification control). Their role in climate change mitigation and adaptation is also
important as the sustained provision of these ecosystems' goods and services will help people to adapt to hardship under
a changing climate. Howeve
r, despite their value, these forests are caught in a spiral of deforestation, fragmentation,
degradation and desertification. These dynamics are driven by interrelated factors, including climate change, policy and
socio
-
economic factors. Also contributing

to the scenario are technical aspects as well as a general lack of
understanding of the importance and vulnerability of these systems and, consequently, a lack of investment in their
protection, sustainable management and restoration. FAO, together with p
artners
-

forest related government bodies,
international, regional and national organizations, CPF members, local communities and authorities, NGOs, research
institutions and networks
-

is working to: Raise awareness of the importance of arid zone forests

and their contribution
to food security in drylands; Mobilize appropriate partnerships for conservation, enhancement and restoration of the
social, economic and environmental values of drylands forests; Support the development of necessary technical
capac
ity for the sustainable forest management, restoration of degraded lands and combating desertification in drylands;
Enhance collaboration and dialogue with a wide range of partners and actors and countries through the organization of
events and workshops;
Facilitate the development of programmes and projects and support their implementation for
restoration of drylands.
