This film is an overview of workshops in four regions: Asia; Africa; Europe; and Latin America and the Caribbean. Held under IYAFA-2022 (the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture), these were organized by ICSF and its partners. More than 200 participants came from 52 countries. They discussed the SSF Guidelines, their implementation and monitoring; fishers’ tenure rights; social development; gender and women in fisheries; and necessary governance transitions. The inspiring narratives of small-scale fisheries will help shape a promising future. The workshops fostered collaboration, knowledge sharing, and addressing key SSF issues. Their outcomes will contribute to the ongoing efforts towards equitable and sustainable fisheries.
