StewardFish: Stewardship and Livelihoods in Caribbean Small-Scale Fisheries (StewardFish) project CNFO Leadership Institute Pilot Report

The Caribbean Network of Fisherfolk Organisations (CNFO) is a partner with FAO in the implementation of the GEF funded Developing organisational capacity for ecosystem stewardship and livelihoods in Caribbean small-scale fisheries (StewardFish) project. The seven-country project (for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines) aims to empower fisherfolk throughout value chains to engage in resource management, decision-making process and sustainable livelihoods, with strengthened institutional support at all levels. The CNFO has made significant progress over the years. However, there is much more to be done to satisfy the development goals of the organisation. Assessments of fisherfolk organisations (FFOs) have highlighted that a number of FFOs are dormant and many others are weak, with limited organisational capacity. The identified weaknesses, include poor management skills, weak leadership, inadequate communication and limited advocacy skills. The CNFO is actively addressing capacity development of its member in these areas. The aim is for members to contribute in a more effective manner to promote sustainable fisheries livelihoods and to participate in fisheries governance. The CNFO is seeking to address the leadership capacity gap by developing a 鈥楲eadership Institute鈥. The institute is comprised of four pillars: training, mentoring, forum and a library. This report is delivered for Activity 1.1.1.3 in Component 1, which focuses on 鈥淒eveloping organisational capacity for fisheries governance鈥. The activity is to 鈥淒eliver training, network capacity building with NFOs to form a CNFO 'leadership institute'鈥
