Internship application

In 2009 NAFO established a General Council Performance Assessment Working Group (PAWG) to address the establishment of a performance review to identify the strengths and weaknesses in NAFO, as urged by the United Nations General Assembly in its resolution 63/112 on Sustainable Fisheries for Regional Fishery Management Organizations (RFMOs). In 2010 the working group met and the terms of the Performance Review were developed. General Council approved terms of reference (ToR) at the September Annual Meeting. The report can be downloaded here.(5.8 MB)
