The workshop was organized by ICSF, in collaboration with the Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association (WIOMSA) and the Masifundise Development Trust, with inputs from the Coalition for Fair Fisheries Arrangements (CFFA). The workshop was organized with the objective to identify and promote understanding of key issues in fisheries, aquaculture and coastal area development and management in the Eastern and Southern African (ESA) region, towards enabling fishing communities and organizations working with them to negotiate for programmes and policies that will sustain and improve their livelihoods; and to develop and strengthen networks between fishworker organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community leaders and other stakeholders in coastal and inland fisheries in the ESA region.
