A methodological guide for mapping women's small-scale fishery organizations to assess their capacities and needs


The purpose of this methodological guide is to outline how to conduct an empirical assessment of the current landscape of women’s small-scale fishery (SSF) organizations. Applying this methodology will enhance understanding of where women are organized in SSFs (both geographically and within the value chain); what their present organizational characteristics and capacities are; and their primary needs. Gathering this information through this methodology can help design interventions to enhance women’s organizational capacities and to work towards greater gender equality in fish value chains.
