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.
