Innovations in fisheries co-management, and the challenge of mobility
- Co-management attempts mostly focus on improving fish-stock management, requiring people to reduce fishing activities, without offering any interim benefits. Thus incentives are not taken into account. The SFLP (Sustainable Fisheries Livelihood Programme, FAO) approach to co-management was instead based on embedding fisheries management in a development context, recognising that local institutions for resource management could also be used to mobilise finance and services in support of fishing communities. It gives priority to an enabling legal framework and appropriate institutions.
