Joining the intergovernmental body will give a stronger voice to the world’s one-by-one tuna fisheries

The International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF), the non-profit association that is committed to developing and supporting responsible one-by-one tuna fisheries and supply chains, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded observer status with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

IPNLF’s application for UNCTAD observer status was approved on 2 October 2019. Moving forward, it will be ideally positioned to establish a closer working relationship and a firm basis for cooperation with the intergovernmental body.

Having UNCTAD observer status means that IPNLF will be able to have representation and participate in Trade and Development Board meetings and in public intergovernmental meetings organised by UNCTAD. Moreover, having a presence at this international forum strengthens IPNLF’s voice in advocating for more equitable and sustainable international fisheries policies that protect ocean resources and the communities that rely upon them.

Martin Purves, Managing Director of IPNLF, says, “Joining UNCTAD presents an excellent new opportunity for the realisation of our mutual goals. Through our research, projects and partnerships, we are working to ensure small-scale, one-by-one tuna fisheries are represented and actively engaged in the decision-making for the international management of tuna resources.”

Purves continues, “IPNLF is convinced that the best way to safeguard ocean resources and the environment is through a holistic approach that also takes into account the socio-economic viability of coastal communities. Alliances with organisations such as UNCTAD provide a platform for IPNLF to use its knowledge and experience to unlock the potential that one-by-one tuna fisheries can bring to an ambitious, integrated global agenda. These important relationships also underpin our essential work, which is aligned with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Our aim is to use our influence to enable lasting social and economic change for fisheries and their communities with the ultimate goal of ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring prosperity for all.”

IPNLF also holds official observer status at several regional fisheries management organisations (RFMOs) relevant to its mission and its Members.
