In 2020, a Concept Note for the preparation of a second volume of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Technical Paper “The Nansen Programme: Investigations of Fishery Resources in Developing Regions, History of the Programme and Review of Results”, prepared by the EAF-Nansen Programme Coordinating Unit, was approved at the Norad/FAO/IMR Annual meeting. The report is intended to cover results of the activities in the third and fourth phases of the Nansen Programme, including surveys with the second R/V Dr Fridtjof Nansen which operated between 1994 and 2016. The Centre for African Wetlands (CAW) was chosen to be the partner institution. Centre for African Wetlands, now Centre for Biodiversity Conservation Research has been associated with EAF-Nansen Programme for over eleven years, having hosted some training activities at its facilities at the University of Ghana, Legon.
