Gender
(FAO, 2020)

This paper outlines the application of the principles of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (the SSF Guidelines) in FAO member countries and regions. Women  are  often  marginalized  and  there  is  a  strong  need  for  their  empowerment.  The  workshop  clarified  the  scope  of  the  project  and  it  was  agreed  that  project  activities  will  focus  on  using  small  fish  (small  pelagic)  value  chains  to  increase  the  quantity  and  quality  of  small  fish  and  fish products for human consumption and trade, and on empowering women in the postharvest sector as a means to those ends. 56 pp.
