    The contribution of women in small-scale fisheries to healthy food systems and sustainable livelihoods in the United Republic of Tanzania 2023
    Also available in:

    The gender brief is tailored to provide insight into the contributions of women in small-scale fisheries to healthy food systems and sustainable livelihoods in the United Republic of Tanzania. Approximately 220 000 women in the United Republic of Tanzania depend on small-scale fisheries for their livelihoods, mostly in the post-harvest sector. Pervasive gender norms limit women’s opportunities and decision-making power at household and community levels, as they face many gender-based constraints in fisheries value chains and they are more vulnerable to intersecting factors such as poverty and gender-based violence. Targeted actions should be undertaken to address gender inequalities and support women’s empowerment in the Tanzanian fisheries sector, including developing gender-responsive policies to address climate change and gender-based violence, collecting and sharing standardized gender data, and supporting women’s participation in fisheries associations and governance processes by reducing barriers related to gender norms.

    The Gender Brief is tailored to provide insight into the contributions of women in small-scale fisheries to healthy food systems and sustainable livelihoods in the Philippines. Approximately 1 500 000 women in the Philippines depend on small-scale fisheries for their livelihoods, mostly in the post-harvest sector. Pervasive gender norms limit women’s opportunities and decision-making power at household and community levels, as they face many gender-based constraints in fisheries value chains and they are more vulnerable to intersecting factors such as poverty and gender-based violence. Targeted actions should be undertaken to address gender inequalities and support women’s empowerment in the Filipino fisheries sector, including supporting the registration of women in fisheries databases to increase their access to extension services, strengthening the capacity of gender and development focal points at local and national level and supporting the strengthening and networking of women’s organizations to increase their access to services and resources.

    Also available in:

    The Gender Brief is tailored to provide insight into the contributions of women in small-scale fisheries to healthy food systems and sustainable livelihoods in Ghana. Approximately 90 000 women in Ghana depend on small-scale fisheries for their livelihoods, mostly in the post-harvest sector. Pervasive gender norms limit women’s opportunities and decision-making power at household and community levels, as they face many gender-based constraints in fisheries value chains and they are more vulnerable to intersecting factors such as poverty and gender-based violence. Targeted actions should be undertaken to address gender inequalities and support women’s empowerment in the Ghanaian fisheries sector, including the establishment of gender units at ministerial level, the provision of training and awareness raising to fisheries extension officers and the integration of women’s perspectives and knowledge in fisheries resource management and climate adaptation plans.
