Resilience and adaptability of fishing communities in Fiji, Ghana, Sri Lanka and Vietnam

Global fisheries are under stress from overfishing, pollution, poor resource mangement and the effects from climate change. Hundreds of millions of the world’s most vulnerable people rely on these dwindling resources for their food and nutrition security and livelihoods. Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (UK), the project aims to build a body of research that can capture the human dimensions of the global fisheries crisis. The project focuses on four highly fish-dependent countries: Fiji, Ghana, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Using a community case study-based approach, it examines the relationship between resilience and well-being in fishing communities and looks at peoples’ abilities and willingness to adapt to changing circumstances.
