The SSF Hub Presents: Fisher Voices webinar series will continue in 2022, as a way to facilitate the exchange of stories, best practices, and actions needed to protect the lives and livelihoods of small-scale fishers worldwide. These webinars will highlight important topics, voiced by small-scale fishers and fishworkers, to build increased awareness of the issues facing small-scale fishing communities, drive action to support them, and demonstrate the importance of the implementations of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries.

The SSF Hub is focusing on the following topics for its regional webinars: Women & Gender in Small-Scale Fisheries; Small-Scale Fisheries as Part of the Blue Economy; Small-Scale Fisheries Governance; Climate Change Adaptations and Resiliency. These themes were identified by small-scale fishers and members of the small-scale fisheries movement and encompass the Pillars of the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA 2022) and the sections of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Small-Scale Fisheries (SSF Guidelines). 



The SSF Hub and these webinars aim to provide a place where fishers, fishworkers, and communities can share their needs, stories, information, ideas, and questions to help inspire and empower people to elevate the profile of small-scale fisheries on the global agenda and take action locally to strengthen these fisheries for a better future.
