Pakistan

Type of Organization: 

NGO/CSO

I am currently working on: 

Policy and Plan of Action for Sustainable Fisheries in Sindh, based on 2 goals: economic equity and ecological integrity. Objectives include adequate environmental flows in rivers, which requires agrarian reforms. Destructive infrastructure such a mega dams, coal and nuclear energy plants has to be stopped. Large-scale commercial and industrial fishing has to be banned. Social protection including employment at a living wage has to be a plank in the aim of reducing over fishing. My work is done through the Pakistan Fisherfolk Forum, currently secretariat of the World Forum of Fisher People.
