Fridays for Climate | Gender equity in small-scale fisheries in Fiji

Roslyn Dass-Nand is a Master student funded by the EU and the Intra-ACP GCCA+ Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change and Resilience Building (PACRES) Programme. 🌊

Roslyn is working on examining and documenting the role of women in small-scale fisheries in the coastal communities of Fiji. She is examining the impacts of climate change on small-scale fisheries, particularly on food insecurity in these Fijian coastal communities. 

🐠The overriding issue is that for small-scale fisheries, food security and livelihood cannot be effectively managed, improved, and transformed if women are not precisely represented in statistics, research, and decision-making.

Roslyn hopes to provide recommendations for future researchers and policymakers to better understand gender equity in small-scale fisheries and how it can be integrated into better coastal resource management and policy planning to increase food security and resilience in Fiji. 👭🏽
