This project aims to increase the resilience and adaptability of fishermen and fisherwomen to the climate changes affecting their livelihoods and food security, in the vulnerable coastal communities of Fiji, Vanuatu and Solomon Islands. The project works to help local and national governments apply gender-responsive approaches to: (1) incorporating climate change considerations into local fisheries management; (2) improving community preparedness for natural disasters; and (3) developing resilient and gender-inclusive fisheries and aquaculture value chains.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) strengthened national and local management capacity in small-scale fisheries for climate change adaptation using a gender-responsive approach; (2) improved preparedness of national and local governments to respond to natural disasters and climate change impacts; and (3) improved resilience of local fisheries value chains to climate-related changes, extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks.
