Nine Thematic Reviews were prepared as an integral part of the GCA +20, under the overall guidance of the International Programme Committee, with the objective to review and update the current understanding on key issues relating to the development of sustainable aquaculture.
A group of experts prepared advanced working drafts of each Thematic Review and the key findings from each theme were presented and discussed by expert panels during the GCA +20. Participants were then invited to provide their feedback and perspectives on the reviews and their key messages. The opportunity for providing feedback was open before, during and immediately after the conference (from 3 September to 15 October 2021). Only comments from registered participants were considered.
The nine draft Thematic Reviews can be downloaded in pdf format from the links provided below (note the Thematic Reviews are only available in English). The final Thematic Reviews will be published in mid-2022.
