Small-scale fishers (SSFs) are especially vulnerable to food and nutrition insecurity as well as climate change impacts. Small-scale fisheries can also have an outsized role in meeting a country’s food and nutrition needs and goals because they catch species that are high in key missing micronutrients, local, culturally appropriate, and easy to store and transport. However, current policies that treat fish primarily as a commodity to be exported undermine the ability of SSFs to live up to this potential.
The aim of this Dialogue is to bring together representatives from SSF sectors around the world with key food and nutrition and fisheries management decision-makers from corresponding countries in order to spur discussion on what can be done to better utilize and support SSFs in national food and nutrition plans.
