Indicate and briefly describe any actions that have been carried out to implement this Resolution: 
Capacitaci�n- FEG members participated also in the CBD-FAO-FEG Sustainable Ocean Initiative OECM Capacity-building Workshop for the Wider Caribbean and Central America (online 20-21 April and 27-28 April 2022) OECMs, in Jamaica, FEG made a series of presentations on (1) a global overview on the developments of OECMs; (2) Types of ABFMs and potential benefits; (3) examples of Caribbean Area-Based Fisheries Management Measures (in collaboration with CRFM); (4) OECM criteria; and (5) capacity-building for OECMs. - FEG members participated actively to the CBD-FAO SOI National Workshop for Jamaica OECMs in the marine fishery sector (17-19 may 2023). Organized at the request of the Jamaican Government. The meeting was very successful and agreed to a common way forward by the fisheries and environmental authorities to rapidly identify fishery-OECMs in Jamaica. Completed
Educaci�n/Comunicaci�n/Concientizaci�nAt the Fifteenth round of informal consultations of States Parties (ICSP 15) on the United Nations Fish Stock Agreement (UNFSA), the FEG Chair was invited by the Global Marine Program of IUCN to give a presentation on behalf of IUCN, in a Session on ”Understanding the ecosystems approach to fisheries management in the context of the United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement”. The Chair made a presentation on “Other Effective Area-Based Conservation Measures (OECMs) and the UNFSA relating OECMs to the ecosystem approach already adopted in the UFSA, suggesting it was time for the UNFSA Parties to promote the use of OECMs in RFMOsCompleted
Educaci�n/Comunicaci�n/Concientizaci�nAt the IMPAC 5 meeting (February 2023) FEG organized a symposium on Area-Based management in collaboration with FAO and ICES on the state of OECMs in fisheries. The meeting was chaired by the FEG Vice Chair and the meeting involved panellists from FAO, ICES and FEG. One FEG member made a presentation on FEG activities on OECMs. An ICES Expert presented the results of the 2022 ICES-FEG Workshop on OECMs in the North Atlantic. FAO staff reported on FAO’s efforts in OECMs in capture fisheries. The discussions were very rich and active.Completed
Actividades t�cnicas/cient�ficasFEG collaborated also directly with the Secretariats of RFMOs like NEAFC and GFCM as well as OSPAR to promote a better understanding of these institutions of the duties and responsibilities this might entail for them. FAO and the CBD were very closely associated to these efforts. On-going
Actividades t�cnicas/cient�ficasFEG members led or co-authored, in collaboration with experts from FAO, the CBD, and other institutions, three scientific papers published the following papers: - Garcia, S.M.; Rice, J.; Himes-Cornell, A.; Friedman, K.J.; Charles, A.; Diz, D.; Appiott, J. & Kaiser, M.J. 2022.

Contribution of Area-Based Fisheries Management Measures to Fisheries Sustainability and Marine Conservation: a global scoping review. Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries. In addition, FEG members were also called to review and comment on the draft FAO Handbook on OECMs for fisheries in early 2023. Together, these papers represent a substantial contribution to the understanding of OECMs in fisheries and FAO is not working on the development of guidelines. Completed
Actividades t�cnicas/cient�ficasFEG was granted financial support from NCM to prepare a comprehensive review of Area-Based management Tools of relevance to fisheries. This comprehensive paper, prepared by FEG experts and external collaborators is over 300 pages and was published in March 2023. The reference is: Garcia, S.M.; Rice, J.; Link, J.; Sowman, M.; Charles, A.; Augustyn, C.J.; Penas Lado, E.; Morishita, J.; Campbell, D.; Kirkegaard, E.; Govan, H. 2023.

Indique cuáles han sido los resultados/logros obtenidos en el marco de las actividades realizadas: 
All these activities greatly improved the understanding of IUCN's Parties on the use of OECMs in the Marine capture fisheries sector. The action also enhanced significantly the collaboration between IUCN, FAO and the CBD, and other regional fisheries organizations
¿Qué esfuerzos se están llevando a cabo para superar dichos obstáculos?: 
Limited capacity to respond to external demands. The only solution is to be very selective and we focussed by necesaity on resolutions 080 and 107
