One of the products that FAO plan to develop throughout this year within the framework of the GloLitter Partnerships project is a background study on fishing gear recycling. The study will address the following issues: (1) What are the current practices and mechanisms allowing the recycling of unwanted fishing gear (including both end-of-life fishing gear and retrieved Abandoned Lost or otherwise Discarded Fishing Gear) and Extended Producers Responsibility schemes for fishing gear; (2) how the identified practices/mechanisms could be incentivized or possibly regulated; and (3) what are the opportunities and challenges that such practices/mechanisms.
At the moment FAO are looking for suitable candidates that could lead and write this study under the supervision of the FAO GloLitter Project Task Force Unit.
