Abstract: This report is a background report for the Fishery Improvement Projects Workshop: Strategies, Successes, and the Future of FIPs. The report is based on the key research findings for the project Supply Chain Strategies for Transforming to Sustainable Fisheries funded by the Swedish Research Council Formas and hosted at the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere Program of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

The aim of the project is to understand the potential and challenges for Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) as pathways towards more sustainable fisheries. This project contributes with the first global systematic description of FIPs governance processes by examining reported actions, the actors involved, and their achievements in terms of policy and practice outputs, based on a sample of 107 FIPs. The material in this report is based on published and unpublished scientific material
