Latin America and the Caribbean Small-Scale Fisheries: A Regional Synthesis - E-consultation

 

 

 

Latin America and the Caribbean Small-Scale Fisheries: A Regional Synthesis is a product of the TBTI, and forms part of a series of five regional synthesis reports which collectively provide a global picture of the SSF characteristics, challenges, threats and opportunities. The report was developed by TBTI with inputs from academics and experts in Latin America and the Caribbean.

With these reports, TBTI aims to put small-scale fisheries on the map and in the right perspective, such that SSF sustainability can be improved through policies that maximize their contribution to the regional and national social and economic development. The regional synthesis reports provide an informed baseline for actions through policy changes that can transform the way SSF are recognized, managed and governed.

We wish to make this synthesis an inclusive and fair depiction of SSF in Latin America and the Caribbean, accessible to multiple audiences, and as such we are engaging various experts, academics, practitioners, fishers’ associations and fishers as part of the process. Intensive consultation on the Latin America and the Caribbean synthesis with interested parties has been ongoing, and TBTI is now launching an e-consultation.

It is our mission to make this synthesis a document that truly represents the various realities of the Latin America and the Caribbean SSF, and we look forward to receiving your comments, observations, and recommendations.
