Gender Research in Fisheries and Aquaculture: A Training Handbook
This Training Guide has been developed through a collaborative effort by the Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries Section of the Asian Fisheries Society and the USAID Oceans and Fisheries Partnership (USAID Oceans). The guide draws from training materials that have been used across Southeast Asia, and beyond, to provide a manual that is reflective of diverse experiences from the field, including those of women and men in the fisheries sector.
This guide provides tools for fisheries research that integrates social science and gender perspectives. The first three chapters are products of workshops conducted during the 6th and 7thGlobal Symposia on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries (GAF6 and GAF7), and field research in Asia. The fourth chapter provides practical guidance on how fisheries work, such as conducting appraisals of fisheries management systems, can be inclusive of gender aspects in the fisheries and acknowledge the diverse experiences and needs of stakeholders. Finally, a collection of resources for further information and study are provided.
