This Action will be organized using a matrix approach with four Working Groups (WGs) and four cross-cutting Task Forces (TFs). Each working group has a clear plan with associated to the Action research Tasks (1 to 4) and expected deliverables around specific types of NWFP. Each WG will have a coordinator to ensure the implementation of the work plan. TFs shall ensure that knowledge to be produced will be also integrated, organized and presented considering NWFPs as whole and which are the opportunities and threats towards a MSFM. Each TF will also have a coordinator. Since this Action will be organized using a matrix approach with four Working Groups (WGs) and four cross-cutting Task Forces (TFs) there will be 4 vice-coordinators for each WG, who will be helping on the coordination of the WG work in relation to the respective Action research task (1 to 4). All the vice-coordinators working with the Task 1 will be part of Task force 1. Similarly the vice-coordinators for Task 2, 3 and 4 will be part of Task forces 2, 3 and 4 respectively. Every member of the Action will ultimately belong to a Working Group but not necessarily to a Task force.
