The use of global instruments can help to promote sustainable fisheries and aquaculture-related activities as well as sustainable exploitation of environmental resources in a country. In this policy brief, we provide an overview of key challenges confronting domestication of global instruments, including fragmented or uncoordinated institutional arrangements for fisheries management, limited technical and financial capacity, and competing national priorities hindering the domestication process of global instruments by AU MS. Strategies for an effective domestication by AU MS of the priority instruments have been proposed, as well as mechanism for follow-up and reporting on the implementation documented for consideration.
