Tool under way to capacitate fisherfolk organisations – inception workshop in Trinidad and Tobago

23/05/2019 - 24/05/2019 Trinidad and Tobago

A number of actors have partnered up to develop a tool which can help in understanding how fisherfolk organisations self-govern and help identify areas for improvement and capacity building within the organisation. As part of this project, a two-day inception and training workshop was held in Trinidad and Tobago in late May.

The workshop participants came from the Fisheries Division of Trinidad and Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago Unified Fishers (TUFF), Caribbean Natural Research Institute (CANARI), and Future Fishers.

The organisers were FAO, CANARI, the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, the Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) and the Fisheries Division of Trinidad and Tobago.

The workshop focused on adapting the tool to fit the Trinidadian context with input from the participants and training teams to implement the tool.
