Event Description

One of the primary tasks of the fisheries manager or governor is to balance the pressure on the fish stocks and the aquatic habitat. This requires innovative solutions which can be created when stakeholders are able to meet, share experiences, learn together and contribute to decision making processes. In this course, you will learn about fisheries governance needed to ensure food, nutrition and livelihood security. It provides you with insights on challenges that fisheries governance faces and explore ways to strengthen it. The course provides a framework in which you will acquire insights and skills to bring stakeholders in the fisheries system and help them understand each other’s perspectives, manage their conflicts and learn together. The programme is highly interactive and will allow you to practice a range of participatorymethodologies in a real-life case. You will be challenged to apply the concepts learned to your own work situation.
