Illuminating Hidden Harvests in Ocean Action newsletter (vol. 13)

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization, WorldFish and Duke University committed to working in partnership with global experts to assess and quantify the contributions of small-scale fisheries (SSF) to the three pillars of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental). This effort is critical to supporting the growing momentum in implementing the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-scale Fisheries (SSFs) in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication, and action on the Sustainable Development Goals. The final results of the IHH study are anticipated in late 2020.
