Due out in 2022, the Illuminating Hidden Harvest (IHH) report ties together the efforts of nearly 800 authors and experts to contribute to a more complete picture of small-scale fisheries. Drawing on a tapestry of methods, including 58 country and territory case studies, the report examines the current environmental, social, economic and governance contributions of marine and inland small-scale fisheries at global and local scales. In this webinar, the IHH chapter leads will share a few key findings from the report and respond to audience members' questions during the Q&A session.
The 90-minute webinar is being held twice to account for different time zones:
- 8-9:30 am Rome (CEST) / 2-3:30 pm Bangkok (ICT) / 6-7:30 pm Sydney (AEST)
- 10-11:30 am New York (EST) / 12-1:30 pm Sao Paulo (BRT) / 4-5:30 pm Rome (CEST)
About the IHH initiative
Led by FAO, Duke University, and WorldFish, the IHH initiative aims to generate and disseminate new evidence about the importance of small-scale fisheries to inform policy and practice. A major output of the initiative is a comprehensive research report based on a new and novel methodology. Due out in 2022, the IHH report looks holistically at the social, environmental, governance and economic contributions of small-scale fisheries globally.
The IHH findings will contribute to the growing body of evidence on the role and values of small-scale fisheries. Critically, the initiative will help to put much needed data and information into the hands of countries, regions and small-scale fisheries advocates to emphasize the diverse and vital contributions of small-scale fisheries.
