WorldFish Webinar: Gender Equity & Equality in the Small-scale fisheries Guidelines

Gender Equity & Equality in the Small-scale fisheries Guidelines - Indicators for Governance Capacity & Capability

Webinar organized by TBTI, GAFS and WorldFish. 

 

Effective implementation of the gender aspects of the Small-scale fisheries (SSF) Guidelines will require fisheries governing institutions that have the capacity and capability to integrate gender research and best practices in their policy and practice.

At GAF7, TBTI hosted a workshop to identify gender integration capacity and capability indicators for fisheries institutions. Together we identified 40 indicators that were grouped into 8 themes (please see the report below for further details).

The purpose of this webinar is to summarize the findings of the workshop and then to continue to define and refine indicators and measures that can be used in multiple contexts.

The expected outcome of the webinar will be a set of indicators and measure that can be used by academics and practitioners to assess the gender capacity and capability of their national fisheries institutions.

The 5th Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture 2019

Theme: Transforming food systems under a changing climate

Agricultural development can be slow and uneven, often not reaching the people who are most vulnerable and in pockets of deep, entrenched poverty. It is further hindered by climate change, which disproportionally affects agriculture and threatens the achievement of SDG targets on food security and poverty. In order to achieve food security, increase productivity, alleviate poverty among rural communities, build resilience to climate change and other stresses, and reduce agricultural emissions, a complete transformation in agriculture is needed over the next decade, going beyond business as usual and piecemeal short-term projects.

The overarching theme of the 5th conference, ‘Transforming food systems under a changing climate’, takes cognizance of the need for transformation and aims to build the knowledge base needed to support the transformation required.

The conference will focus on 6 interlinked sub-themes, which are the key elements of agricultural transformation :

  1. Strong farmer and consumer organizations and networking
  2. Digitally enabled climate-informed services
  3. Climate-resilient and low-emission practices and technologies
  4. Innovative finance to leverage public and private sector investments
  5. Reshaping supply chains, food retail, marketing and procurement
  6. Gender equality, capacity and enabling policy and institutions
