    Women's empowerment in aquaculture: Bangladesh country case study 2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    While women play a significant role in aquaculture production in Bangladesh, their contributions remain under-reported. While there is some empirical information regarding women’s roles in and outcomes from aquaculture in Bangladesh, much of it is project-based (regarding homestead aquaculture) or worker’s rights-based (regarding shrimp factory employment). More fundamentally, there is a dearth of information regarding women’s empowerment in relation to aquaculture, and associated enabling and constraining factors. This study addresses this fundamental gap by exploring women’s empowerment in aquaculture in Bangladesh, including positive outcomes and limitations.

    Also available in:

    This fact sheet presents and overview on current gender equality and women’s empowerment issues in the fisheries sector. The engagement of women in fisheries can be seen from different perspectives, from social and political to economic and technical views; all these areas evidence that the role of women has been underestimated. The paper provides information on policy, institutions and planning processes; statistics dimension in gender analysis, specific concerns in the field of fisheries indus tries; and identifies lessons learned as well as opportunities for gender mainstreaming at macro, meso and micro operational levels. It suggests some relevant approaches to continue striving efforts, made over the last decades, upon recognition of women’s crucial role in the society and to promote sustainable and equitable fisheries and aquaculture development.
