ICSF Statements

Views:1997

A repository of statements at all ICSF conferences and workshops, beginning 1984. ICSF actively participates in various multilateral conferences—ILO, CBD, FAO, UN-DOALOS among others—issuing statements on important topics. You will also find statements made by civil society organizations and fishworker organizations in several forums.

Women engage in a wide range of activities in fisheries, including paid and unpaid work and liaison with institutions. In several countries, women dominate inland fishing and aquaculture. Their play multiple roles – in seafood processing plants, as caregivers in the family, as the builders of social networks and community.

Gender issues focus not on women only but on their relationship with men, on their roles, rights and responsibilities. They acknowledge that these vary within and between cultures as well as by class, race, ethnicity, age and marital status.

The 2014 SSF Guidelines are based on the principle of gender equality and equity. They integrate gender issues into all small-scale fisheries development strategies.
