The “Developing Organisational Capacity for Ecosystem Stewardship and Livelihoods in Caribbean Small-scale Fisheries” (StewardFish) Project which began in 2018 is a Global Environmental Facility (GEF) funded initiative. The goal of this project is to empower fisherfolk throughout fisheries value-chains to engage in resource management, decision -making processes and sustainable livelihoods with strengthened institutional support at all levels in seven small island developing states (SIDS)- Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (CANARI 2019). Activity 220.127.116.11 under Output 3.1.1 of the StewardFish project aims to learn from the past and adapt in the future by reviewing previous projects and initiatives (PPIs) that focused on sustainable fisheries livelihoods in order to identify best practices and lessons learned. To achieve this, a desk review of sustainable livelihood PPIs in the target countries was conducted. This reports documents the results of the desk reviews that were undertaken.
