SSF Regional Symposium for Asia-Pacific
"Bright Spots ~ Hope Spots"

The first SSF Regional Symposium for Asia-Pacific will take place on April 9-12, 2024 in Shizuoka, Japan. The symposium will be hosted by TBTI Japan, in partnership with Tokai University and other partners, and with support from TBTI Global.

 

We are excited to welcome you to Shizuoka for the conversation and discussion about ‘Bright Spots ~ Hope Spots’ in small-scale fisheries in the Asia-Pacific region. We know there are many small-scale fisheries in the region that are thriving and can be presented as examples of “bright spots”. But we also recognize that there are many challenges facing several small-scale fisheries in the region, making it difficult for them to be viable and sustainable. These small-scale fisheries are the ‘hope spots’ that need our attention. The symposium is a great opportunity to share stories, exchange experiences, and take lessons about what have been done well to support small-scale fisheries in the Asia-Pacific region, to discuss what remains to be done, and to work together to plan coordinated regional effort to support them.

 

We look forward to receiving your contribution, and to interacting with you in Shizuoka, Japan, in April next year.
