SSF have been mostly ignored in SDG, except under Target 14b: “Provide access for small-scale artisanal fishers to marine resources and markets“.
We have an opportunity to make sure that this topic (access to resources and markets), along with others that are important to SSF, such as rights, justice, sustainable livelihoods, and food security, are incorporated in the upcoming ‘Ocean Conference‘ to be held in June to discuss SDG14.
Nicole Franz (FAO), Ratana Chuenpagdee (TBTI), Rebecca Metzner (FAO), and Joe Zelasney (FAO) are co-moderating an online discussion about Target 14b under the question “How can we make fisheries sustainable?” Now, we need you to let them know what sustainable fisheries mean in the context of SSF.
The discussion open today, March 20th. Join now by clicking here.
