Evaluating the fit of co-management for small-scale fisheries governance in Timor-Leste

Fisheries co-management is an increasingly globalized concept, and a cornerstone of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication, adopted by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization member states in 2014. Timor-Leste is a politically young country in the relatively rare position of having underexploited fisheries in some areas that can be leveraged to improve coastal livelihood outcomes and food and nutrition security.

Pan-African Workshop on Strengthening Organizational Structures of Non-State Structures of Non-State Actors for Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in Africa

The workshop aims to strengthen non-state actor (NSA) platforms and their representation at regional and global levels for sustainable small-scale fisheries in Africa. Bringing together 40 participants—including non-state actors, other small-scale fisheries representatives and stakeholders, and regional organizations and partners—the workshop provides an opportunity for attendees to exchange experiences and discuss capacity development needs.

Expected outputs of the workshop include:

Guidelines for community fish refuge-rice field fisheries system management in Cambodia (Khmer version)

These guidelines are a summary of a full manual for Community Fish Refuge (CFR) - Rice Field Fisheries (RFF) system management in Cambodia. The aim of these guidelines is to document good practices in CFR-RFF system management, and thus act as a resource for organizational stakeholders wishing to support fish conservation, food security and nutrition in such environments.

A manual for community fish refuge-rice field fisheries system management in Cambodia

This manual is based on findings from the implementation of the USAID-funded Rice Field Fisheries Enhancement Project (RFFEP) in four provinces of Cambodia (Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Pursat and Battambang) between 2012 and 2016. The manual has been developed to guide relevant stakeholders and target communities in how to approach i) the selection of Community Fish Refuges (CFR) and ii) the process of designing and implementing improvements to the CFRs.
