The Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries Section of the Asian Fisheries Society collaborated with the USAID Sustainable Fish Asia Local Capacity Development Activity to develop an action plan to recognize the women working in fisheries and to ensure decent work and an enabling environment for women’s businesses to thrive. The document titled, Decent Work and Thriving Businesses for Women in Fisheries: A Cooperative Action Plan, was launched on June 24, 2022 and can be found here: LINK

The goal of the Plan is to contribute to greater regional understanding across stakeholder groups of key labor challenges for women in the fisheries sector and to support regional advancements for gender and just, equitable, and inclusive labor conditions across the Asia-Pacific fisheries sector.
