The first meeting of the SSHRC-funded global research partnership on small-scale fisheries (SSF), Too Big To Ignore (TBTI), took place September 4-6, 2012, in St. John’s, Canada.
The purpose of the workshop was to enable TBTI members to meet personally, to understand role and responsabilities, to exchange ideas, experiences and thinking about SSF, to develop work plans and to agree on key principles for the partnership.
The meeting focused specifically on working principles guiding the partnership, on workgroups and regions initial thoughts on the direction that the WGs/regions maybe taking, and on partners and individual members contributions to TBTI network.
