Diagnosing, strengthening and monitoring small-scale fishery resilience
- The project "Improving resilience and adaptive capacity of fisheries-dependent communities in Solomon Islands" uses participatory diagnosis to identify threats to rural coastal communities in Solomon Islands and sources of resilience. The WorldFish Center, which leads the project, defines a resilient small-scale fishery as one that absorbs stress and reorganizes itself following disturbance, while still providing benefits for poverty reduction. Identifying sources of and threats to resilience is the first step in successfully managing risk, allowing the subsequent nurturing and preservation of ecological, social and institutional attributes that enable the fishery to endure, reorganize itself and renew its productivity.
