    Small-scale fisheries make an important global contribution such as providing food and households’ cash income. However, they are still underdeveloped, vulnerable, and poor. The lack of collaborative management, the vulnerability of small fisheries, the loss of income because of poor post-catch treatment, the lack of alternative livelihood, and the lack of access to finance are the most important small fisheries’ problems. Such problems will be addressed by the four year Regional Fisheries Livel ihood Programme (RFLP) for South and Southeast Asia which is operating in Cambodia, Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Langka, Timor-Leste, and Viet Nam. In Indonesia, RFLP has activities in East Nusa Tenggara and specifically in 4 of its 20 regencies namely Kupang, Kota Kupang, Rote Ndao, and Alor. The paper describes two component may affect small fishers livelihood, i.e. national regulation as well as national and local fisheries state conditions. The first component is containing law and regulation on responsible fisheries, water-resources and habitat, commercial fisheries, spatial planning, collaborative management, micro finance, safety of life on the sea, and disaster mitigation. The second component is containing resource mismatch, shifting to aquaculture, mismatch between administrative and fishing ground boundary, conflict between utilization and conservation, unequal profit margin and benefit inequity, bounded rationality, and declining aquatic resources. Based on two components ab ove and project aims, the paper recommends six forthcoming actions regarding fisheries co-management mechanisms, measures to improve safety at sea and reduce vulnerability, measures for improved quality of fishery products and market chains, diversified income opportunities for fisher families, facilitated access to micro-finance services, and promoting sharing knowledge.
