Synthesis of case studies on the role of women in fishing communities
MetadataShow full item record
Being involved in artisanal fisheries activities, women have become unavoidable actors in the socio-economic development of West African countries. And yet, despite this key role, the importance of their contribution is often not well known. Thus, in 1995, IDAF Programme set up a Working Group on women's key role and issues related to gender in fishing communities. This group, composed of eleven women, all distinguished scientists and rural development experts in the sub-region, undertook ten case studies in fourteen (14) regions in eight countries. It also organized two meetings for an in-depth thought about women's effective involvement in fishing communities.
