Sebastian Mathew introducing the SSF Guidelines workshop in India - Part II


Mr. Sebastian Mathew, Executive Secretary, International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF) explained the objectives of the workshop, hoping that it would fuel the much needed dialogue between and among stakeholders; reflect on how to raise the stature of SSF using the SSF Guidelines and reflect on policies and schemes that could be used for the benefit of the subsector. This presentation was part of the National Workshop on Capacity-building for the Implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries held in March 2016 in New Delhi. The workshop was organised by the ICSF — in collaboration with World Forum of Fisher Peoples (WFFP), World Forum of Fish Harvesters & Fish Workers (WFF) and Centro Internazionale Crocevia (CIC) with the support of the International Fund for Agricultural Development Fund (IFAD) and the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) to promote awareness about the SSF Guidelines and to mobilize support for their implementation.
