Coastal Fisheries Initiative


In Ecuador and Peru, more and more coastal fishing communities understand the need to protect marine ecosystems by building sustainable business models.

The Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) management looks at people and their environment in a holistic way in order to achieve socially, environmentally and economically sustainable fisheries.

Empowering women in fisheries value chains is key to ensuring thriving coastal communities and ecosystems and to achieving the SDGs.

Sustainable mangrove management is key to preserving endangered mangrove ecosystems and their biodiversity, which millions of coastal fishers and fish workers depend on for their food and livelihoods.

Empowering the women and men who depend on small-scale fisheries for their livelihoods is key to the sustainable use of coastal ecosystems and biodiversity, now and in the future.
