Gender and social inclusion in fisheries

Published on Sun, 24/03/19 | News, Research

Dr Anouk Ride was recently engaged as a specialist by the World Bank to conduct gender and social inclusion analysis for their upcoming fisheries projects in Tonga and Kiribati. In each of these locations, while women collect the majority of seafood from coastal areas for family consumption (a practice referred to as gleaning), they are often excluded from participation in catch and sale of higher value species and relevant decision-making about natural resources. Identifying gendered work in fisheries and obstacles women and youth face todevelop sustainable livelihoods in fisheries is just one of many steps needed to broaden the benefits of fisheries to all.
