The World Bank had commissioned an
independent team to evaluate and assess the future role of
PROFISH, the Global Program on Fisheries. The evaluation
team found that PROFISH, since its inception in 2005, had
made excellent progress in raising World Bank, bilateral
donor and client country awareness of fisheries development
needs, contributed fisheries and aquaculture content to
global development products and assisted World Bank country
and regional operations. The evaluation team concluded that
fisheries can be reformed to achieve multiple objectives by
(1) focusing on governance and institutions, (2) including
fisheries in the mainstream development agendas and in
global themes such as food security and climate change, and
(3) applying the key operational tools of problem diagnosis,
sequenced interventions and implementation experience and learning.
