FishCollab is a participatory diagnostic and planning process.
The tool comprises:
FishCollab assists governments, communities and NGOs to work together to improve coastal management. It enables users to identify key stakeholders, develop networks (find and develop cooperation with relevant and committed parties), analyse policy, analyse and reduce conflict, and identify opportunities and challenges using local knowledge and science.
Two publications support use of FishCollab.
FishCollab is used when governments, communities and NGOs want to work together to create a shared commitment to coastal management (fisheries) planning. It enables collaboration between these parties to foster sustainable coastal resource use and livelihoods, across multiple levels of formal and customary governance.
No specific user skills are required to use FishCollab. Facilitation and social research skills would be an advantage.
The need for training or support depends on how experienced the user is, with participatory philosophies and methods in general, and in the field of coastal/fisheries management.
