Stewardfish Guidance on Stewardfish Review Process and Social Learning Required to Facilitate Adaptation Among Fisherfolk Organisations
Under the CLME+ SAP, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) is funding the Developing Organisational Capacity for Ecosystem Stewardship and Livelihoods in Caribbean Small-Scale Fisheries (StewardFish) project, to be implemented by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) is working in collaboration with other regional implementing partners1 to execute the various components of the project in seven countries within the CLME+ region: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Component 4 of the project focuses on project management, monitoring and evaluation, and communication. Outcome 4.1 – Good governance and learning for adaptation institutionalized among fisherfolk organisations, has several activities specific to learning and understanding processes and mechanisms in place for strengthening institutional support and empowering fisherfolk across the region. This report specifically focuses on activity 184.108.40.206 (b) – Provide guidance on the review process and social learning required to facilitate adaptation. The report was delayed due to COVID-19 constraints in the countries, which placed project activities behind schedule. The on-going impacts of the pandemic on communication and interaction feature prominently in several sections.
