Between 16 and 18 February 2010, 43 women from 16 small-scale fishing communities in the Northern and Western Cape provinces of South Africa gathered in Lambertsbaai on the west coast for the second Women in Fisheries Workshop. The workshop, supported by the International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF), with a small contribution from the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), was titled “Recasting the Net: Redefining a Gender Agenda for Sustaining Life and Livelihood in Small-scale Fisheries in South Africa”. The workshop was held preparatory to the proposed ICSF Global Workshop with the same title, to be held in Chennai, India, in July 2010. As far as Masifundise Development Trust and Coastal Links – the two South Aricabased fishers’ organizations involved in the meet – are concerned, the workshop helped build their leadership capacity to ensure that the nation’s new small-scale fisheries policy secures equitable access and benefits for women living in fishing communities in South Africa.
