Engendering Security in Aquaculture

In fisheries and aquaculture, 6th Global Symposium on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries(GAF6) was most concerned with food security and nutrition, legal rights and politics, access to resources and industry opportunities, fair livelihoods, dignified work, safety within the household, and resilience in the face of natural and climate change related disasters. Human rights, including women’s rights and equality politics within the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, are at the heart of security concerns. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) continues to gradually increase its attention to women’s empowerment/gender equality in fisheries and aquaculture. It is improving data on gender in fisheries and aquaculture statistics (Jennifer Gee and Kathrin Bacher, present volume), producing high quality knowledge products and undertaking, with partners, key field activities.
