Improving community-based fisheries management in Pacific island countries

This project aims to develop and nurture the structures, processes and capacity necessary to manage community-based fisheries in Kiribati, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
Inshore fisheries and marine resources supply daily protein and are one of the few sources of cash for villagers and coastal people in Pacific Island Countries. These fisheries and resources face threats such as climate change, and their continued degradation will have severe consequences for food security and social stability. This project will help governments to maintain the sustainability and security of their inshore fisheries and aquatic resources through improving local management and linkages between local and national scale governance.
This project proposes community-based fisheries management (CBFM) as the vehicle through which these goals can be attained.
