Abstract: 

The workshop aimed to analyze the impact of current developments in fisheries on the lives and livelihoods of fishing communities, specifically focusing on women’s experiences. It also sought to share local agendas and strategies of women’s organizations in fisheries, taking stock of achievements and obstacles; and attempted to define an agenda and strategies for sustaining life and livelihood in fisheries into the future. The Mahabalipuram workshop followed on national/regional workshops in the Philippines, India, South Africa, Brazil, Thailand, Europe and Canada, and a desk study on women in fisheries. This publication serves as a record of the proceedings of this workshop.
