granted are summarized in five tables: (1) limits of territorial seas, fishing zones, and exclusive economic zones; (2) license fees, bilateral agreement or joint venture requirements, and nationality criteria; (3) coastal state requirements for foreign fishing; (4) compliance control and reporting conditions; and (5) penalties for unauthorized fishing. This legislative study will assist lawmakers and fishery authorities in addressing activities of foreign fishing vessels in the formulation of governmental policies and legislation.

A "Regional Compendium on Aquaculture and Inland Fisheries Legislation--Asian Region" was published by FAO in August. The Compendium is FAO's first comprehensive collection of national legislation explicitly concerned with aquaculture and inland fisheries of the Asian Region and is an important source of information on the present state of national laws on these subjects.

On water law and water policy, FAO published Readings in African Customary Water Law, No. 58 in the FAO Legislative Studies series. The publication, which is based on a search of the lega/anthropological literature, is intended as a contribution to the knowledge of traditional systems of tenure and disposition of water resources in Africa. It examines the traditions of 100 ethnic groups in 33 countries in anglophone and francophone Africa. In addition, FAO actively participated in the inaugural meeting of, and was considering joining, the Global Water Partnership (GWP). A joint initiative of the United Nations Development Programme, the World Bank, and the Swedish International Development Agency, the GWP was officially launched at the inaugural session held in Stockholm, 9 August 1996. It aims to bring together government water resource administrations and agencies, international organizations dealing with the management and development of water resources, private sector water companies, professional associations, and nongovernmental organizations. The GWP's main goal is to support countries in the sustainable management of their water resources through sponsorship of field programmes and activities consisting of technical assistance, training, and exchange of information and experience.
