Webinar recording: Measuring capacity and capability for gender integration in SSF governance

Hosted by TBTI, GAFS and WorldFish

Effective implementation of the gender aspects of the SSF Guidelines will require fisheries governing institutions that have the capacity and capability to integrate gender research and best practices in their policy and practice.

At GAF7, we hosted a workshop to identify gender integration capacity and capability indicators for fisheries institutions. Together we identified 40 indicators that were grouped into 8 themes (please see the report below for further details).

The purpose of this webinar was to summarize the findings of the workshop, and then to continue to define and refine indicators and measures that can be used in multiple contexts. The expected outcome of the webinar is a set of indicators and measure that can be used by academics and practitioners to assess the gender capacity and capability of their national fisheries institutions. Following the webinar, we will update the report to include our new findings.

to accommodate audience from different time zones, this webinar was offered twice
