Participatory landing site development for artisanal fisheries livelihoods provides guidance on landing site development planning. This manual helps those working at artisanal fisheries landing sites to identify, collect and analyse information in a participatory way, and consequently to create and seek support for a development plan. It goes beyond simple data collection to explain how to write a project proposal and gives pointers on how to find funding, as well as technical and other support. In addition to well-known participatory methods of data collection and analysis, the manual includes transects in the fisheries production chain. This unique tool was adapted from the agricultural transect walk. The material is based on a number of cases in West Africa but the principles are applicable worldwide.
