We have finished our contribution to the ”Global Ghost Gear Initiative” evaluation, that was led by Baobab consultancy. We have provided our technical expertise to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the campaign with the final aim of improving it.
The Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) is a cross stakeholder alliance of fishing industry, private sector, corporates, NGOs, academia and governments focused on solving the problem of lost and abandoned fishing gear worldwide. It started six years ago. Lost and abandoned fishing gear are important because they impact on animal life, threatening the sustainability of life in the oceans, food supply volumes and safety, as well as livelihoods that depend on the sea.
