Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries
in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication


To have the intended impact, the SSF Guidelines need to be implemented and promote change, in particular at the local level. For this, collaboration and concerted efforts are needed at all levels and by all stakeholders.

The FAO Umbrella Programme for the Promotion and Application of the SSF Guidelines contributes to the development and implementation of sustainable small-scale fisheries policies, strategies and initiatives in the context of food security and poverty eradication in FAO member countries and regions by promoting the application of the principles of the SSF Guidelines.
