18-20 October 2018: GAF7 – the 7th Global Symposium on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries
  • :2018-10-18 To 2018-10-20
  • :Bangkok, Thailand

The journey of the GAF network over 20 years has been slow but steady and has partnered with the Asian Fisheries Societies Triennial Forum throughout its evolution. Today the GAF is a formal Section of the Asian Fisheries Society and is embarking upon its independent journey. The first of its activities is organizing the standalone GAF7 – the 7th Global Symposium on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries. As a standalone event, participants will have more time to interact, meet new people with similar interests, and will be able to focus more on GAF7, without having to go off to present at or chair other sessions. Participants will find that the AIT environment is very conducive to meeting, interacting and developing future collaborations.

The Symposium on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries in India (GAF-India) will be held as part of the 11th Indian Fisheries and Aquaculture Forum, the premier event of the Asian Fisheries Society Indian Branch.

Women and gender studies grounded in Indian fisheries and aquaculture experiences have contributed significantly to global knowledge.

The format of the symposium will be organised under various topics, with each having oral and poster presentations.

In conjunction with GAF-India, an International Workshop on Challenges in the Implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on Small Scale Fisheries (SSFVG) of FAO in South Asia will be held.
