    Mainstreaming gender into project cycle management in the fisheries sector. Field manual (Thai version) 2011
    Also available in:

    Although the fisheries sector has long been considered a male domain, the involvement and contribution of women is far more significant than often assumed. To date, there is relatively little guidance or specific recommendations on how to effectively address gender in the context of small-scale fisheries development. FAO fully acknowledges the importance of addressing gender issues in development projects as a way to promote gender equity and improve fisheries livelihoods. Too often, there is in sufficient attention paid to the gender issues that affect fishing communities. There is also a lack of tools and guidance on how gender issues in such communities can be addressed. This field guide provides practical advice on how to ensure that gender concerns are explicitly recognized and incorporated into all phases of small-scale fisheries development projects.

    "Guiding Sustainable Development: Inclusive Practices in Small-Scale Fisheries Organizations" is a collaborative effort by Namibia's Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources (MFMR) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Stemming from Namibia's successful implementation of sustainable fishing guidelines, the publication emphasizes gender equality and youth involvement for food security and poverty eradication. It offers practical guidance for establishing gender and youth-responsive Small-Scale Fisheries Organizations (SSFO) to promote sustainability and social equity in the sector.
