Women fishers in community managed fisheries in Sekong River Basin

This report is about a one day workshop on women fishers in community managed fisheries in Sekong river basin in Laos. The participants included women fishers from six villages, officials from local authorities and other stakeholders. The objective of the workshop was to deliberate upon the initial findings of a study to assess the status of women fishers in community based fisheries management and, through the process, raise awareness and promote women’s participation in village-based fisheries management committees. The report highlights that this workshop is the first time ever for women to attend where government officials also participated and that this workshop provides space for women to raise their voice and take part in consultation at village level.
