This document gives an overview of FAa's work with regard to  such disasters in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, together with the  lessons learned and experience qained on how to improve disaster response, preparedness and prevention in these sectors. One of the main purposes of  this document is to support policy- and decision-makers involved in disaster response and disaster risk management by increasing their effectiveness in addressing the needs of fishers and coastal communities in relation to disaster
