To promote positive change NFDS offers awareness and communication services.
These include, for example, development and publication of different types of briefs (e.g. policy briefs, lessons learned, general awareness promotion pamphlets), position papers, and case studies. NFDS also produces larger publications for awareness-raising, such as State of the Marine Environment reports. We support the African Voice – a collaborative approach undertaken by African countries in international policy fora, for example the FAO Committee on Fisheries as well as various international negotiation processes (e.g. for the Port State Measures Agreement and the Voluntary Guidelines for Flag State Performance).
