Are you interested in questions such as ‘What kind or rights exist in SSF?, What factors have direct or indirect effects on SSF rights? Or in issues of human rights-based approach and rights-based systems in SSF? If you are, then be sure to sign up to the new TBTI cluster on ‘SSF Rights’.
Overall, the ‘SSF Rights’ research cluster address the issues related to various types of rights for small-scale fishing people. In accord with the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines), the SSF Rights cluster will:
- emphasize the need for small-scale fishing communities to secure tenure rights to the resources, which form the basis for their social and cultural well-being, their livelihoods and their sustainable development;
- conduct research to support the realization of the right of small-scale fishing people to adequate food and nutrition; and
- contribute towards the implementation of human rights-based approach to sustainable SSF, as promoted in the SSF Guidelines.
