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.
