The TBTI sponsored workshop: “Enhancing Stewardship in Small-Scale Fisheries through Ecosystem Approaches and Other Means” is organized by the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region and working group 4 (WG4) and will be held August 6-9, 2013, in Curitiba, Parana, Brazil.
The workshop is organized to facilitate dialogue among people in LAC who are interested in discussing issues concerning small-scale fisheries (SSF) in the region. While other topics will be covered, the workshop will have specific focus on the project goals related to WG4. The workshop objectives are:
- To introduce participants to the research and practical aspects of TBTI WG4 and LAC;
- To engage fisheries researchers and others actively interested in SSF in a discussion about tools, methods and good practices used to assess and monitor SSF impacts, and to enhance stewardship;
- To enhance SSF research collaboration and networking in Brazil and elsewhere in the LAC region;
- To discuss other aspects of research on SSF in the LAC region and to develop plan of actions
A major output of the workshop is expected to be a networked program for TBTI that enhances existing and planned compatible SSF initiatives in Brazil, and generally the LAC region. Regional collaboration will be enhanced through this workshop.
