Gender Mainstreaming In Fisheries Management: A Training Manual
The SFMP aims to develop nested governance arrangements and management plans for fishery management units at three ecosystem scales, utilizing adaptive co-management approaches tailored to each unit. Civil society engagement is crucial in this process. The SFMP engages stakeholders in order to build consensus, involving men and women engaged in the fisheries sector at national and local level. The SFMP will also provide communities with diversified livelihoods, including ways to obtain greater profitability from fisheries value chains. One aspect of this work particularly emphasizes more efficient and profitable fish smokers that have the potential for significant scale-up. This element places a strong focus on women and youth and utilizes local partners whose missions address the needs of these target groups.
